    Mazda 6 Carputer (update)

    as is always the case with this hobby, i've been constantly tinkering with my setup. i've mostly been working on customizing RR to suit my needs. i also added a powermate and constructed a motorized mechanism for the screen to go up and down with the car's ignition signal (more on that project HERE).

    i took Proximo's CF skin for RR and altered it to fit the applications i use. for instance, i don't use the carputer for phone, radio, xm, etc. so i eliminated all that stuff from the skin, giving it a more "clean" feeling. i also changed the background color to match my car's interior theme a little more. so anyway, i watered it down to include:

    - music
    - video
    - dvd
    - GPS (iGuidance 2.1.3, but switching to v4.0 soon)
    - weather
    - internet

    i shot a little demo video of the carputer in action...

    yeah, i'm just using a wi-fi adapter, which means i need to be within range of a wi-fi hotspot. but i really only use it to download weather data before leaving home.
