    Another Update

    Well I have been using my laptop as my carpc for the last couple of weeks and whille talking to a friend of mine he says to me "u know i think I have a docking station for one of those " and this is how my carpc has evolved from that point on. I'm still working on a plate on the arm rest of the extended Power Button and the Power On LED so that will be a future update . Hope u like what I've done and let me know what u think.

    First things first: THE MOUSE
    Its small, its optical, its RF


    Next is the Docking station in the Trunk:


    With the PC in it:


    Snugly secured for travel:



    A VERY BAD shot of the GPS screen:

    Q:How did you extend the a/c controlls?
    A: Basicly since it's a electronic A/C Controll it controlls a bunch of rellays and servo's so it only has 8 Wires in the back of it Snip-Snip and make the wires longer and put the controll where ever u want it

    Q: I have that same head unit...what does the eq do that the head unit can't?
    A:Basicaly the Eq takes the 4v out put of the radio and "boosts" it anywhere from 7v to 13v this = cleaner signal thru the RCA (or something to that effect )

    So its doing the same thing that an amp would? I have a 200w amp just lying around...if I put it between the head unit and my wall speakers, they could go louder and/or sound cleaner?

    Can you hear a difference between it being there and without it?
