    Wow awesome setup! The fingerprint recognition, although I don't see much use for it, is nevertheless cool
    And you just gave me an idea on where to put my new CD-R drive!

    Newest install - my quickest ever
    My 2nd carputer - b4 I broke the touchscreen
    My very first carputer - voted the most ghetto

    accessibility for the carpc was very important to me; i did have to compromise slightly on placement - i felt it was unsafe to put the pc and headunit under the driver's dash (too close to the gas and brake pedals - plus if you're in an accident, they'd chop off your legs); both would not fit in the glovebox either. Although i do have to slightly reach to turn it on, it's still a lot better than having to exit the car and pop the trunk to change disks. and as previously said, i would rarely be using cd's/dvd's (because everything's on the harddrive anyway). Legally speaking, the driver should not even be watching dvd's while driving anyway - "it's for the passenger"...

    wow . wonderful setup . I think the fingerprint recognition can be a used for later .eg. multiple profiles, setting ,choice of songs etc.

    Maybe you could get the fingerprint scanner hooked up to the obd-2 to disable the ignition if it's not in the system, aswell as profiles for power seat settings, radio presets, etc. Really nice job on the install.

    Very nice indeed, how much did streeteffectz charge for it?

    Only bad thing i can think of is that you dont have the pleasure of knowing you did all the hard work to get the thing working

    But still, good job.

    Ejdeleon, did you notice any difference in the glare or screen appearance with the screen protector on it? Did it effect the touchscreen? Also is the screenprotector shiny?

    the nushield screen protector is very glossy. there was no significant glare though noted before or after the addition of the protector, although i must say that the lilliput monitor in itself with the touchscreen was dull to begin with. so yes there is some glare/dullness to the screen at certain angles but not caused by the protector itself (in my opinion). also there was no degradation in the quality of the touchscreen sensitive and accuracy with the protector.
