Very clean, very nice
The install has been removed from the car and has been transfered, to here.
In '99 I bought myself an '87 Audi 80 from an old couple my parents knew.
Being a student at that time, I was looking for a rather cheap car.
The car was rather old, but still looking very good. It had only 88.000km (+/- 55.000 miles).
The couple had bought this car brand new and had owned it for 12 years.
All this made me decide to buy the car.
For over 4 years I had driven the car with the '87 orginal stock HU. I really got sick of it! I started searching for a new HU but stumbled on this site...
After a lot of reading I decided to give it a try myself.
The result :
- Via Epia M10000
- 256MB RAM
- 40GB HD
- PW70A + ITPS
- Matrix Orbital MX2 (char LCD)
The pics aren't always that good and I still need to tidy it up a bit.
simple and to the point. when you install the xenarc, you going to add things like gps and dvd?

Actually it wasn't a toolbox. It was a box for a car-starter kit.Originally Posted by criterzzz

Good one! I also wanted to get one of those serial LCDs but they appear to be quite expensive and my carputer already has its serial port occupied by an IR receiver
Well they are quite expensive indeed, but there is a USB version as wel. I myself have the USB. Works nice, it creates a virtual com-port. So the programming will not be different for the USB version.
Maybe in the future I'm going to use GPO's of the display to control some neons or leds or something. Don't know yet.
That RCA does quite a good job, certainly worth the money spend on that little wireOriginally Posted by yunusyu
I already have the Xenarc 700TSV.
I tested it few days ago, and boy do i love it
Wiring for the LCD is already in place and tucked away properly. Just have to mount it.
But i'm still thinking on how to build some kind of bracket. It must have quick release for the LCD, must be sturdy and as stealth as possible. Because, to be honest, besides a lock, there is no hightech antitheft mechanism on a '87 Audi 80.
Maybe some of you got an idea?
Does the Matrix Orbital need just the USB cable? Or does it need a separate power cable run?
