Talk about Plug & Play!!!
so here it is...
NX 15000EG Nano
120GB SATA Drive
Mechatronics kit (modified)
Turtle Beach (I'd like to thank via for the total lack of documentation on how to build audio cables for their pin headers, and the complete and total lack of customer support)
M2ATX power supply
The docking connector on back connects power, radio antenna (which doesn't work yet for some reason), ignition, amp remote, and 3 usb connections. There are 3 usb ports inside for touchscreen, BT and silabs radio. (I can post digikey parts to make a docking connector if people want, this is the same docking hardware used in the empeg).
Things I'm still trying to figure out.
1. Why I can't hibernate.. it just freezes at the hibernation screen, it's done this through 2 seperate builds (I suspect either ram incompatibility or bad via drivers, I had to use old video drivers to get the lilliput to work). Suspend works fine and is super fast...
2. When I try to use my BU-303 GPS along with my usb serial connector for XM, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't, when the GPS dies I have to jerk around with it for 20 or 30 minutes removing via hubs and whatnot through device manager... xm works fine (so far)... for the time being I've pulled the GPS and am using the iBlue BT GPS... it works as well if not better anyway.
I'd like to state that I've had an M10000 and an M12000, this little guy is sooo much faster, I was pretty much amazed by the speed. Unfortunately via provides little to no support for this board, and unless your willing to spend entirely too much time and money trying to create cables, your SOL... I was able to make a video cable and usb cables (board comes with a 4 port usb cable and video, but I need a shorter vid sollution and all six usb), I gave up trying to make audio work, I could get line-in working OR line-out... but never both together... via support was completely unresponsive.
I had to chop the mechatronics cage to get it to fit in the OEM cage (GTO dash is very shallow), but I still had plenty of room for the nano.
oh yeah... here's the home adaptor I just made for it. Radio shack project boxes are awesome!
As for the radio reception, I think I just used the wrong wire type... I was in a hurry and just used small guage stranded wire... I probably need to go back in and redo the connectors with a coax type..
where'd you get the green switch that's ontop of the case?
Show me a pic of your car..
Nice one.. Gotta love the Holde.. I mean Chev..
