    M10000 install - 2003 Mazda 6

    Finally took the time to install my carputer, couldn't have done it without all of the information I learned from searching this site. I'm still debating hacking my dash and installing the lcd there, but multiple people on the Mazda 6 site have been having issues with losing the enviromental controls as everything is integrated. Plus, I can easily move the lcd (its only held in place by pressure and I can close the door to conceal it, so it looks stock...) All of the pics are on the 2nd page of my Cardomain profile.


    Components:
    Travala 137 Case
    Via M10000 Mobo
    256 MB RAM
    D-link USB FM Tuner
    Storix USB 2.0 DVD-ROM/CD-RW
    Sound Blaster Audigy 2 NX
    Delorme USB GPS Receiver
    Lilliput 7" Touchscreen LCD
    Western Digital 120 GB Hard Drive

    Software:
    Windows XP Pro
    MediaEngine 2.1
    Delorme Street Atlas 2004
    WinDVD 4.0

    How does the USB 2.0 dvd rom play? Any skips or is it pretty smooth?

    Port - I used the Audigy 2 NX because I didn't have room in the case for any PCI cards (that's where I mounted the Opus) and it gave me the flexibilty to place it anywhere in the car that I want and is less likely to pick up interference from the car's electrical.

    Cyber - It plays flawlessly. USB 1.0 was awful, but a 2.0 drive seems to smooth out all of the issues that 1.0 had.

    Oooooo good idea with the USB 2.0 DVD. Could you post a link to where you got it and the model? I'm looking at doing the same thing.

    Ha - I had the exact same idea for mounting my screen, that "lidded-dash-tray" is available for my Pulsar also, picked it up at the wreckers just last week - thought I was the first to have that idea, well done ;o)

    I'm going to make the on/off switch the contact of the lid, when it's down it's off, up it's on.

    Well done Litespeed
