    1999 Honda Accord - Carputer - 7" Lilli/GPS/MP3/DVD/OBDII

    Okay, first the history.
    I'm been working on this project for over 4 years, since I got the car. After planning, and buying (and then selling) parts, lcd, etc, I scrapped the idea in '00 and bought a Neo35 standalone MP3 player. Of course, that got boring and I needed more. In '02, I moved to NYC and rarely had my car for the next 2 years. In that span, it was involed in a very bad accident when a drunk slammed into the rear while it was parked ($13K of damage). Now I moved accross the river to northern NJ, stuck my rims back on and put together Phase 1 of the carputer.

    Phase 1 - MP3/GPS/DVD/video
    Hardware -
    -7" Lilliput VGA TouchScreen
    BookPC 500mhz/256 ram/15GB HDD (will be 80GB)/ DVDrom/ embedded Sound-Video-Lan
    - BU-330 GPS mouse receiver
    -160W inverter/Distribution Block/Amp wiring kit/on-off switch
    Sofware - WinXP Pro/MediaCar/FrodoDVD/iGuidance v2.0(Routis)

    I was going to flush mount the whole monitor. Bought the materials and all. But then I decided that I would like to be able to remove it for security purposes and I did not want to void the warranty. I may paint the housing black or try those vinyl dash material. I'm planning a truely removable connection.

    When the passenger seat is bushed back a bit, the BookPC doesn't show as much. Also, the distributer block and inverter or located under the driver's seat with the on-off lighted switch in the dash (Pics coming soon).

    The GPS receiver is mounted in the front right side of the dash and all wires are hidden (pics coming coon).

    Here are some pictures - later this week, I'll upload pics of the GPS mount, the on-off switch, wiring/inverter and some more daytime pics.

    Tell me what you think.

    Update 9/13/04 - Added OBDII from obddiagnostics.com for $88 shipped. Got a belkin serial to usb adapter. Upgraded hard drive to 40GB WD. Ordered a usb-to-samsung adapter so hopefully I'll have Sprint Vision internet soon.

    How do you have the Lilliput mounted and how easy is it to remove? I'm planning to do something similar in my Integra, but I haven't figured out how yet.

    I had to cut about piece out of the center dash, in order to accomadate the buttons. Basically I had to increase the height of the double din like 3/4 of an inch. You can see it in the pic - removedlilliput.jpg above.

    It is fairly removable, just not pretty and not ultra secure. I plan on making a real mount soon. I was suprised that the width was perfect for my double din. I put a layer of electric tape around the sides of the lilliput and it seems to not slip back (and I have a bumpy ride b/c my car has been lowered) There is the metal piece that sticks out on the botton that seems to secure the Lilli perfect, I really just need domething to secure the top of the monitor.

    Here are some more pics of the dash install (the cutting)- Before and after

    Installed, it looks very nice! The best alternative to a molded-in screen.

    Maybe fiberglass something in the dash behind the screen so it looks better when the screen is removed... you could even make a conector hold it into place (centronics type?)

    Very very nice ! ! ! X 10000

    the only thing I can say is put your left hand rims on the left hand side of the car and the right hand rims on the right hand side of your car
