    03 BMW 325i install

    Here is the progress on the CarPC for my 03 325i. I really need a better free webhost because this one has some crappy bandwidth limit only 5 people can view the page and then it stops for an hour.

    If someone wants to host this it would be appreciated. The whole page is only 2.2MB.

    just curious where you picked up your lilliput screen? have you had any problems with it at all?

    how did you mount the GPS mouse?

    that's a really sweet 03 and a nice carputer!

    Sorry for the late response.. I had some busy weeks.
    I have had no problems with the screen its self. It is running perfectly with great picture quality. Just 1 dead pixel which I didn't even notice until recently. Touchscreen needed some calibration, but its fine now. It also runs well off the 90 watt OPUS PSU along with ITX board and all that other stuff listed. The GPS mouse is not mounted, it is just sitting there and has a rubber bottom to it. Unless you flip the car upside down, it is not going anywhere though.

    Nice work...

    Do you know of any products out there that can project the Dell Axim's screen onto an external monitor? I also have a Dell Axims X5 with Routis GPS and I'd like to display the screen on a 7" monitor I have in my car.

    Any ideas?

    I have a E46 also.
    How the heck did you mount the LCD? What brackets did you use? Any LCD install pics? We E46 fans would love to know!
