    2007 Gmc Yukon XL- 10.4" HD In dash -Center console Blu/Ray Hd-Dvd - AMD X264 5000+

    Well I finally finished "most" of my project.

    First the car. It's a 2007 GmC Yukon XL :





    Now for my sound : I have a Kicker Solobaric 12" powered by a Sony 900 watt mono amp :



    Now for my carputer setup :

    HP Pavilion Slimline S3300f
    Lg Blu-Ray/Hd-Dvd player
    10.4" VisionTouch 1024x768 HD Sunlight Readable screen
    M4-Atx 250 watt Power Supply
    XM Radio via Xm direct and Mp3car.com Xm adapter
    HD radio via Visteon HDZ300 and mitch's HD cable
    GPS via iGuidance v4 and BU353 Antenna
    Ergonomic Touchpad
    Griffin Powermate
    3d Conexxion Space Navigator
    Gyration Media Center Keyboard and Remote
    9.2" 800x480 Vga Headrest Monitors


    PC Specs:


    Processor : AMD AthlonTM 64 X2 Dual-Core Processor 5000+(2)
    Memory : 2048MB
    Memory speed: PC2-5300 DDR2 SDRAM
    Graphics : NVIDIA GeForce 6150 SE 128MB
    Hard disk drive(s): 500GB 7200RPM SATA
    Primary Dvd: SuperMulti DVD Burner with LightScribe Technology
    Dimensions : 13.89 x 4.21 x 10.87 in THIS THING IS PRETTY SMALL

    First thing I did was add a low profile Geforce 8400.

    Second thing was to buy a M4-Atx and modify it to fit in the case.
    I had to re-wire the 24 pin Atx connector to work with the HP Slimline proprietary plug :



    Then I had to make a case for it to fit in the HP case :







    Here's what the inside of the HP Slimline looks like without the power supply :

    When I moved the DVD drive to the center console the M4-ATX went in it's spot.

    Now for the Dash.

    Here's what it looked like before:


    I had a Clarion VRX765VD in the dash with a XM adapter and a Video Ipod adapter.

    I decided that wasn't enough and put in a 10.4" Shark :


    I had to move the air condition controls down. I also removed the 2 cigarette lighters and anti-skid control underneath it.
    I had to trim the dash bezel and modify behind it just a little bit.
    I also had to remove the 10.4" screen from the case and trim the front monitor bezel for it to fit.
    I then had to extend the OS board wires 3 ft for it to fit in the center console.





    Next up was to move the DVD player into the center console.
    I had to extend the power and Sata wires about 3ft.
    Then I took a Dvd rack from a PC and adapted it to fit in the console.
    Then I trimmed the center cup holder area to flush mount the Dvd Player.



    Here's a pic of it coming out right up to the cupholders:



    As you can see from the pics I also added a touchpad. The 10.4" touchscreen had way to much glare so it had to go.
    I replaced it with a touchpad from here :
    http://www.ergonomictouchpad.com/ergonomic_touchpad.php

    This touchpad is awesome. It acts just like a mouse and has easy page scrolling and everything

    I also added a wireless keyboard and remote. It's made by Gyration. Got it from CircuitCity for $24. The keyboard is small - 6"x12.5" and less than 1/2"-3/4" thick.
    Also the remote controls volume, dvd playback, and it has built in mouse control with the gyration feature built in.

    As mentioned I put the Dvd player in the center console. I also have the Creative Live! External in there:



    I put the PC under the passenger front seat. It fits perfect with plenty of room for peoples feet in the back seat :



    Here is a pic of the back seat area when the front seat is where it stays and the PC is where it stays.



    I also have 2 - 9" Headrest monitors that can play what is playing in the front or anything else the backseat passengers want :



    Right now they are running off composite but I have 2 - Vga controllers ordered for higher resolution. the 9" can display 800x480.

    And here is a pic of RoadRunner running :

    I have almost done everything I want to do but it's a hobby so I have plans

    I have a 500nit 180 degree 1024x768 high res screen on it's way.

    I also have a SpaceNavigator on it's way.

    I am also changing out the DVD player for a HD-Dvd/Blu-Ray player, the LG GGC-H201

    It's been fun but there has been some problems.
    I didn't have regulated 12v power on the screen and blew one up and had to order another.
    I have spent about 40 hours on this. It was quite tedious some of the wire extending and soldering.

    And making everything work together has been a chore.

    And I have over $1200 invested right now...... YIKES !!!

    But it has been fun and I have quite a feeling of accomplishment.

    Thanks for looking

    2001 tacoma quad cab big screen 10.4

    I kinda see a trend starting. shark 10.4, remove the touchscreen and use an ergonomictouchpad.

    Hint on power for the screen. There are a few models of hp omnibook (600) that use 12 volt, not 19. You can get for cheap on ebay a car adapter that takes 9-24 volts in, and spits out 12volt. (and it's a real switching supply, not a cheap-o) I use one to power my T5720 and screen -- works great.

    Good looking install.

    Yea I like the touchpad better. The touchscreen was a little far away and the touchpad works great.

    I wound up using the M4-Atx for 12v regulated power. I just didn't think about it at first. I mean it had a car cigarette lighter adapter so I assumed it would work with a cars power .

    And thanks for the compliment

    It just refused to display an image one day when I started the car. Light was on but all I could see was a black screen with a few dark lines in it.

    Forced the inverter to turn on and then there were lines all across the screen. So it somehow burned up the main chip I think.

    seems as the controller burned. i think you can buy those somewhere.
    why would they make provisions for 12v non regulated in if the darn things cannot handle it.

    i used a ac to dc converter on my lilli to bench test but i did not use a regulator so it poped a capacitor. i ordered a new cap and it worked fine and has so far i just hope it dosent blow up!! i spent 20 hrs. custom fabbing a display mount for my tundra and it looks killer but if it blows i wont get another 629. id get a xenarc for sure.

    Yea I already bought a controller off Ebay for it. Costs $51 shipped and it will be here next week. I'll probably just sell it in the classified forum.
