    2007 Range Rover Sport EEEPC install

    I just installed an EEE PC using a GNET video bypass to hook up to the OEM screen.

    EEE PC with 4GB RAM, SDHC, XP nLite, RoadRunner, Elite skin.
    USB GPS Holux M1000
    VGA-Composite AVMedia adaptor
    Keyboard is Logitech Nova Mini

    what else. I'll add info later. Just excited to see it almost there. I need to do a remote toggle and hard wire the electrical.

    I did the install (temp, I gotta hard wire the electrics). I can confirm it looks good. Pictures will tell you..



    I tested the install with a $25 SD Card/USB mp4, divx, mp3 player.


    (A bit of 80s humor with Rick Astley to show off to my friends)

    I then popped my eeepc into the cargo bay. Perfect fit. Literally perfect.


    Fired up the PC. 15 second boot with custom Windows XP



    New GPS

    Watching a DIVX movie


    Remote/Controller




    Some Music





    Cheap $25 Chinese player. Plays mp3, pictures. movie and fits in the cooler just fine.

    What are you using to turn it on and off and power it?

    I was powering it manually. I did the LCD remove magnet hack so it works with the lid closed. I was going to power it with a relay to the Rj11 phone socket.
    Sound is via AV input on my GVIF adaptor and runs through the aux jack.

    I've since abandoned this setup. I am hooking up a HTC Touch Pro Pocket PC smartphone to my car instead. I was dealing with lousy album art support using Road Runner. IGuidance is a bit out-dated.

    I will be using Windows Media 10 for pocket PC, I have a new shell launcher and I will be running iGo8. Using a Phone to power my in car setup is freaking cool. I didn't think a PDA phone would replace a carputer but in my case, I think it is a better setup.

    See this thread:

    Use Windows Mobile phone as carputer

    I think I am going to drop the idea of a carputer when a phone does it nicely.

    I dont have picts but I got the idea from this thread on a LR3 forum. It is the same one made by the OEM. Look at page 3 for his install of the GVIF adaptor

    http://forums.landroverworld.org/sho...t=12462&page=3

    Prius and Lexus uses the same thing. Here is a thread from a Prius forum

    http://priuschat.com/forums/prius-mo...deo-input.html

    No picts on the AVMedia. As I said, I am now using a phone for everything.
