After a year of driving with ver 1 of my carputer I finally finished installing version 2. I am still waiting for radio xtreme to arrive but here are the pics of the new dash.
Well it is that time again and I am getting ready to sell my Infiniti G35 Sedan...
Since my next car will not be a G35 (I am not sure what will it be) I will soon be selling almost everything and starting from scratch.
The main item will be the center dash with the ultra bright Xenarc and the A/C controller from Japan. I really want to sell it as one piece so someone else can put it to good use.
The rest of the computer parts will be up on the 'for sale' forum shortly.
First, drivers view of Frodoplayer:
Frodoplayer from the back
Copilot from the back
very clean install!!
very nice looking indeed...but now you'll have to take yours eyes farther off the road to use the screen; are you noticing any difference in practice here?

Carputer yanked from the Jeep and Denali and waiting to be installed in the Ford.
One the one hand yes it is lower, on the other the screen is much more readable. So far I think it is fine, and that is were the OEM radio was. When I get the steering wheel controls done (still waiting for the IR receiver) I will have volume up/down and song next/prev so I wouldn't have to use the screen much when driving.

I now have buttons for:
1) Change to Frodoplayer
2) Change to CoPilot
3) Volume up/down
4) Track FW/REW
The volume was tricky. Since Frodoplayer needs two key strokes. The first to start setting volume up or down and the second to stop it. What I did was set the RX commander to do a key combination.
The computer controls are the ones on the left.
nice! i'd like to try copilot very much.. seems like the best gps app out there right now!
