    2004 350z install

    My CarPC is finally complete! About 3 weeks of work in total.. This forum has been an invaluable source of information. Thank you all for the inspiration and making it possible!!

    Car: 2004 350z

    Lilliput 7” touchscreen LCD
    VIA EPIA M10000 | Samsung 30GB 2.5" HD | 256MB DDR RAM
    Opus 90W DC-DC Powersupply
    Linksys Wireless-G Portable USB Adapter, 802.11g WUSB54GP-CU
    Gyration wireless keyboard
    iGuidance | Microsoft Streets & Trips 2005 | CoPilot Navigation
    i.Trek Mouse GPS Receiver BU-303 (roof mount)
    Digimoto OBDII software w/Elm Scan blackbox
    Windows XP Professional SP2
    Coyote’s MediaCar
    ------
    EDIT: upgraded parts 12/7/2006
    250W OPUS power supply replaces a 90W OPUS
    GlobalSat BU353 GPS mouse replaces BU-303
    1GB of Mushkin memory replaces 512meg "generic" memory
    80GB 2.5" laptop HD replaces old 80GB desktop drive (crashed)
    80GB 2.5" laptop HD replaces old 30GB laptop boot drive
    added D-Link DIR-450 3g router
    added Sprint PC-5740 1xEV-DO pcmcia card
    ------
    EDIT: upgraded parts 4/10/2007
    Abit BE7 replaces VIA EPIA M10000
    ATi Radeon 9700PRO replaces onboard video

    I wanted to put the entire PC into one of the small rear compartments.. I had to cut it all up and double sitcky everything in place… but it all fits perfect!! Note: the huge ATX power supply is just for setup and testing:


    Front view of the slot.. power supply is on the right, HD is above that velcroed into place. I opted to go without an optical drive because I already have a modchipped Xbox and my headunit is MP3 capable.


    My car torn apart:


    The first fitting of the PC.. perfect!!! (sorry kinda dark)


    My car back together again

    iGuidance v2.0.. love it!! ..(I roof mounted the antenna)


    I wanted to be able to hear the voice navigation while I’m listening to the radio and since I don’t care about using the PC for MP3 or media files, I tore apart an amplified desktop PC speaker and wired it into my car. ghetto I know but it works!! Here’s a pic of the mounted Elm Scan OBDII blackbox and ghetto speaker setup..LOL

    Close up daytime pic of horsepower datalogging and the Lilliput. There was a lot of cutting necessary to fit this screen. If I had to do it again, I’d go Xenarc instead.. The lilli works great but was a little too much aggravation to setup. For the Z owners out there, you'll probably notice that I'm using a 2003 Nav pocket/door.. the 2004 door sucks!


    Wireless surfing..secure your networks people


    an added bonus: reverse camera

    Can you show pics of the roof mount gps? I'm curious on how you did it. That's a cool install man.
