Lookin really nice.
OK, I'm almost done with assembling the necessary stuff for my new Mac Mini carputer install. The audio portion is done (a modest setup utilizing Boston Acoustics speakers driven by an A/D/S amp, no sub) and here are a few pics I just got back from the guy I hired to do the custom dash fabrication for the touchscreen:
Side view - shows the off axis view under bad lighting conditions:
Great color matching:
The Mini is ready to install, all wiring is finished (save the little bit between the Carnetix PSU and the Mini). The Mini will go in the center console with the Apple wireless keyboard and the tiny mouse I nabbed for it. Also got a GPS USB receiver and RouteBuddy software for nav purposes but I'm most excited about having my entire CD collection (just over 5000 songs) at my fingertips (literally) all the time!
The Millenicom wireless internet modem works GREAT so far, so I'll have mobile internet at all times. Thinking about getting a Slingbox just for kicks.
More pics as soon as I get it installed and wired up! I'm very excited, sick of driving around with a gaping hole in my dash for the last month!
Here are the specs:
- Xenarc 700TSV 7" touchscreen (800x480)
- Apple Mac Mini (1.83GHz Intel Core Duo, 2GB RAM, superdrive)
- Globalsat BU353 USB GPS reciever (with RouteBuddy navigation software)
- Millenicom 3G wireless internet modem
- Griffin PowerMate rotary encoder
- Apple mini wireless keyboard
- Logitech V220 wireless mouse
- A/D/S PQ10.2 amp (35X4)
- Boston Acoustics SX65 speakers
Thanks, I'll posts some pics as soon as it's in the dash, which will hopefully be within a week...
