    Well started the process, we have to carefully remove the picture, has tabs, but they are very resilient. I decided to withdraw its original radio and media to have hollow metal enough, I must comment that the uconnect (bluetooth) I have maintained to keep the original function of the car, I mention below as well as the inconvenience of the buttons to pick the calls.

    This is the original radio removed, I did to find out where each wire (I was excited too hehe), is very simple, highlight the PIN 2 and 13 (CAN BUS) I think it's Uconnect control and steering wheel controls , I'll investigate later (if anyone knows thank help). Also left the outline of the radio (for those who serve, apologies are in Spanish).

    Testing correct operation of the screen (you can connect directly to the battery of the car), works perfect.

    The computer is a 350 AE Zotac Fusion SSD Vertex works super fast, along with Consumer Preview Windows 8 starts in 5 seconds, the drivers are a problem but work well, (if I can upload a video for your enjoyment). The source is 200w, but I am aware of ahoramismo solve a problem starting the car, apparently to start ruling remains in the source and the voltage must be disconnected, if someone gives me a suggestion Thank you.

    For the power button I aquipo something more complicated but has been worth it for her I had to remove the service instrumentation and have used buttons into disuse and is reversible.

    For hard drive I found the perfect hole, literally paste handsfree uconnect system, very simple.

    The uconnect has a simple connector with three cables, Left, Right and common. All this input line of the plate, so we uconnect function list. I have to solve the CAN BUS to pick up phone calls, the Wangler has two buttons on the car radio to hang around and talk and another to talk on the microphone (assistant). For this I use CarPC JoyCon exr-Steering wheel controls USB interface, and I'll comment, I accept suggestions.

    As you can see the gap mentioned before I used it to put the Zotac and all wiring, including power, tdt, gps, etc. .. has been pretty good, at first I must admit that Estana not very confident of this. Hope you like.

    I also wanted to integrate a camera performs very well, I leave a test image I made with an mp4 with video input. I've placed well back with a perfect viewing angle (if I can I upload a video) and all cables with tube (came with the kit), the night is just great.

    I still have much work to both software and hardware, I have problems with the lighting that I hope to solve tomorrow, as well as the steering wheel buttons that I consider my top priority. I left the screen to turn on and off with the ignition key, but the computer as it is logical to always stay on for the one with the consumption of energy goes into suspension and I am considering the possibility of putting a self-feeding system such as notebooks or tablets that is just perfect. If anyone has any suggestions on this topic is welcome.

    Thank you all for your attention and apologies if the picture quality is not very good, later put more details of the process and wiring, as well as the process for mounting the stereo. I leave the next day an advance update more pictures.

    Installed: Windows 8 Consumer Preview

    I wanted to get a start in less than 10 seconds to do this using a SDD and Consumer Preview windows 8, with the PB Zotac set to boot from the bios faster skipping some testing and what better than a video to prove it.

    Great job! Lots of pics. It'd be nice if you can post a video to see the whole setup in action. One question, what are the temp specs on the SSD? I ask 'cause a lot of them have a min temp of 32F (0C) and depending where you live it might be a problem. As far as uConnect, if you want to interface it with the PC, perhaps Arduino may be the way to go. It'll take a lot work and web searches if nobody has done it before.

    Dominicanjb, Thanks, luckily I was on holiday . I'll upload a small video to see how little it takes after starting the system with Windows 8, this was my main goal. The SSD is a 120GB OCZ Vertex Agility 3 specifications:

    Operating Temp: 0 ° C ~ 70 ° C
    Ambient Temp: 0 ° C ~ 55 ° C
    Storage Temp: -45 ° C ~ 85 ° C
    More info: OCZ

    I think it will overrun!!!

    I love Arduino and I am a fan, About Uconnect want to test two wire bus can reach the box and use JoyCar. Ire reporting. A greeting!

    Very good install! Your video shows the Developer preview of windows, but I assume you have replaced with consumer preview? Only asking because the develper preview expires shortly.

    Regarding your comment/question:

    "The source is 200w, but I am aware of ahoramismo solve a problem starting the car, apparently to start ruling remains in the source and the voltage must be disconnected, if someone gives me a suggestion Thank you"

    I am not clear what you are asking but if the question is about a suitable power supply that can withstand low voltages while cranking over the engine, there are supplies available right here at the store that are designed specifically for this.

    Hey, great post, lots of details.

    Are you still using your carputer?
    Did you manage to get your Joycon EXR to work? I'm having some issues in my Grand Cherokee.
