    Looking great on the outside. VERY clean! What is better about the NL over the PM? I have the PM and it is limited. I have thought about trying the space navigator.

    Love the look of both the PM and SN, but the PM is too limited for me and the SN is too expensive. The NL falls right in my budget and has the functions I love, so I can overlook the aesthetics. Honestly if i could afford it I'd buy a SN. The PM has 6 programmable features, the NL has 13 and the SN has 12 I think, but I love how the SN is able to tilt.

    No prob. I'm getting my M2 tomorrow and I can't wait to get it in the new CPU so I can install it in the truck. The slow boot and resume times of the current setup really annoys me now, among other things.

    Finally got in the computer...

    Went from this...


    ...to this...


    ...now to this...


    Got rid of the false floor since I really didn't need it nor did I want it anymore. Now if only I could find money for a Lenovo n5901.

    i'm not crazy about the look of the black pc case in the middle of the ocean of tan carpeting, but not too sure what could be done about it... painting the case white/tan would look bad..

    but the wire management looks really good!

    Actually the interior is grey. I understand what u'r saying, but for now I much rather that over the false floor. For some reason I outgrew the false floor. If only it was a car and I could put it in the spare tire area. However, eventually when I add a sub and amps I will build something to house them all, just not a false floor.

    I don't know if it's just my board and drivers, but for some reason all my usb hubs that i was using on the previous setup don't work with the intel mobo when ran off usb extension. They only work when plugged directly into the board. So I ditched those for a generic powered hub and a Targus for the dash. Instead of running 1 usb extension to the front I now have 3. 1 for the powered hub, 1 for the touchscreen and 1 for the hub on the dash. Next week I'll be getting my Visteon HD-Z300 with the older Mitch serial cable.

    The system specs are now:

    Pioneer 6000UB
    Lilliput 701 w/ Belkin Pro Series VGA extension
    Intel dg945gclf2d Mobo
    Seagate 160GB IDE HDD
    Generic Mini-ITX case
    M2-ATX PSU
    4awg AudioPipe power wire & disty blocks (Main Power)
    Logitech NL
    OBDII Scanner w/ Serial to USB interface
    Sirius SCC1 w/ MJS Gadgets interface
    Visteon HD-Z300 w/ MJS Gadgets serial interface (on its way)
    Generic USB powered hub
    Targus Ultra Mini USB hub
    Agiler USB extension
    A4Tech wireless mini keyboard & mouse

    Here is a current pic of the truck in its dirty state. I added a ECC Xtreme rollpan to match the side skirts. Next it will be lowered 3f/4r on DJM springs & blocks.


    The wireless keyboard/mouse combo. I like the mouse because it has a button that once press has something like the NL tooldial in which I can program shortcuts.

    ^^^I do retrofits and they don't only carry projector parts, so it still applies. I'm not running halogens...HIDs. Actually when I first bought the truck I did a retrofit in it replacing the ones that came in sucky ebay projector light that came w/ the truck, but I didn't like the style of the headlights to begin with so i sold 'em.
