    I love the install! However, isn't the screen too cop-visible?

    Cheers,

    Cheers,
    Nope, suprisingly! I was afraid that it would be, but behind the tint you can hardly see it. During the day you cant see it all, at night it glows sligthly. But either way, i'm not planning watching movies & driving, so even if they stop me... GPS!

    Funny, i've already convinced myself i'm going to throw it away and fiberglass an enclosure for it! Just need some decent weather again, it's been miserable for past 5 days.

    I'm interested in that skin too. Its hard to find skins that have larger buttons that accommodate touch screens at small resolutions.

    SAWEEEET!

    Very nice setup man. I feel your pain on running crazy wires in a brand new car.....thank god for the orque wrench. Anyway, congrats, looks awesome...


    btw, as a general comment has anyone else noticed the general tendency us carputer guys have to want to take apart and re-do an installation as soon as it is working? I had that happen with my first (glovebox) install. No more than 3 weeks before i had a new plan

    The case looks nice, even if you are gonna trash it!
