    Carputer install complete, unit mounted upside down in the glovebox.

    Carputer is running RR with Elite skin, Dash command with GTR Gauges and iGuidance for GPS. M3 PSU is working great so far. Boots up with switched power is ON, shuts down when switched power is OFF (after 5 seconds)

    One last thing to do, the OBDLink needs to be sent back as this model uses power from the OBD connector. This will be a problem as it will be plugged in all the time. I will receive the newer model in return. The new model takes power from the USB port, which is fine as it will not be powered when the carputer is off.

    Looks like a nice clean install! Does the PC get hot sitting in the glovebox all shut up?

    Its not too bad, I got this little fan in to help with ambient temps in the case itself.



    Speedfan says its about 45-50 deg C inside the case during load with the glovebox door closed. Goes down significantly when open.

    How is your pico psu hooked up? I got the same case (love it!), but I didn't want to go for the same psu that you have because I didn't see a Ignition wire. I went with an m3 instead. I routed the power and ignition wires through the little hole in the back for now.

    Also, how is your screen powered? I had to leave my case top off so that I could hook up my screen and usb port to the m3. I'm thinking about drilling a bigger hole in the case.

    I should edit that post, i'm actually using an M3 now. The Pico came with the case so I used it at home configuring it but for the car, the M3 is great. As for the screen, i'm using one of these to power it.



    Easiest way to get switched power to power the screen when the key is in the ignition.

    Small update. The pc was getting too hot in the glovebox with the door closed. I added a 5" fan to move air around in there. SpeedFan now indicates a 20 degree C drop in the core temp from 50c to 30c. With the AC in the car on, it drops even lower with the pc case cold to the touch!

    So i guess things like this never get finished.

    I hated having cut into my dash and the 3M Carbon Fiber tape wasn't working out too well for me. I packed up my dash and will be sending it away for some custom love. I am getting the LCD frame and CD player bezel molded and painted into my dash for the OEM factory look. I am sending it to Nexson. He is best known in the Fabrication forum.

    He can take this


    And make it into this


    Check out his thread here:

    Packed and ready to go


    Here is the Lilliput outside of the doubledin adaptor
