    '10 Scion TC Carputer install

    Starting an install this week and gonna start ordering stuff tomorrow, so figured Id start a thread for pics and just general tips and comments. Currently its a stock 2010 Scion TC and building the computer for the following functions initially:

    Initial Setup:
    Play music
    Play DVDs
    Engine Monitoring (including gas mileage)
    GPS
    Internet

    Future Improvements:
    Rear view camera
    HVAC system control
    Systems control (locks, windows, sunroof, etc)
    and probably more later

    Here are my current purchase items:


    And here is the stock photo of my dash will update when install is complete:



    Open to suggestions and recommendations, Im a busy person so time is only available on the weekends, and cash flow is limited so trying to find solutions that are both inexpensive (as much as possible) and still achieve my goal.

    UPDATE:
    So I had a ****ty job yesterday which consisted of me sitting and watching airplanes take off for 4 hours and had a lot of time to think about my install. While doing so came across this Tablet and started considering that. So after 4 hours decided on using that instead, there are some pros and cons which ill inform of once i have it installed and running but ordered it today and should get it friday so gonna do a crude install this weekend while i work out how im gonna fit the larger screen in the dash.

    You do realize that SOPYP is for completed projects, right?
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    Ok so I just received the Archos 9 and its a little bigger than expected and running into some trouble using some parts of it, so its a failed experiment, however it will be a good tablet cause i needed one. So back to the drawing board ordering a nettop this friday that should work great and getting a screen as well if I get a response about the 3M capacitive overlay.

    Note:If a moderator could move this to the worklog cause im an idiot and didnt see it when i made the thread. Thanks

    Finally got enough parts to start my install, been working on the screen today and got it taken apart and have installed the 3M capacitive touch panel on top. Here's some pics:



    Im still waiting on the mounts for the dash to install it in, and have to make the power for the computer before i can install it and get all the components working, but now its just time for the work all the parts are here

    Where are you planning on mounting the computer, as the factory sub in our cars take up the space to the right of the spare tire?
    Thanks!

    I was wondering where did you purchase your 3m touch panel kit and which model kit is it exactly? I am very interested in your touch screen set up, since I'm a big fan of capacitive touch screens lol. can't wait to see your next update when you get to test out the touch screen kit
