    My carputer version 2

    It'd been a while since version 1 View here

    Since then, I've added 7" touchsreen Lilliput screen, Deluo GPS USB-to-Serial unit, OBD-2 scan tool, Boss DVD/VCD/MP3 head unit with A/V input and volume control, MediaCar software (THANKS a million, Coyote), MS Mappoint 2004.

    Well, pics worth thousand worlds, so here:

    Lilliput screen built-in the dash, painted the face:


    Playing MP3 song with Vis on:


    Desktop:


    The whole dash, (sorry for the blurry pic, I was happy...:-)


    MS Mappoint running:


    Deluo GPS on the dashboard:


    Playing Mp3 songs (Thanks Mindtool for the FireSkull skin):


    Dashboard using ODB-2 tool:


    Here is another one:


    Playing DVD without using the carputer:


    Lastly, here is my car with * VIS carbon fiber hood.
    * Customed grill.
    * Tokico Blue Gas Shock
    * Votgland Spring
    * Drilled & Slotted rotors
    * Axxis brake pads all around.
    * TRD rear sway bar
    * 18" Konig Verdict with Ventus 225/40/18 tires.
    * TRD bodykit.
    * Clear front corner signal.
    * Carbon fiber real lights.

    i had the same question as chut.


    Great install nthai! Solara looks very clean -- the way it should look! (i love the lowered stance)

    very clean install looks like it came like that from the factory or somebody did a very $$$ install. have you had any problems with the lilliput?

    thanks

    Thanks guys for leaving a positive notes. It means a lot after spending countless of hours working on the system.

    To peeps with questions:

    * I use the software downloading directly from the www.obd-2.com. I bought the tool there, ISO for Euro, Asian, Chry - and cost $122.
    * As for the Lilliput screen, I bought it from Crystar's group buy in this forum. I guess I was one of the lucky ones, I haven't had any problem with mine yet. No ghost screen, nothing weird at all.

    Btw, the USB-to_serial Deluo GPS works very well with MediaCar/ Mapppoint 04, and it works wonderfully after hibernating...

    Thanks.
    nthai

    Do you have any day pics of the tv install? Very nice by the way. Do you ever go to RI? I see a car that looks exactly like yours in RI sometimes.
