    Acura TL 2004

    Sup guys after a lot of thinking and planning here is my install.

    - Dell 4100 notebook (PIII, 512MB RAM, 80gig HD, Geforce2Go) w/ docking station. All secured and LOCKED in the trunk
    - Xenarc 7" TSV LCD touchscreen with Highbrite option, autoturn on, multiple inputs
    - Griffin Powermate (the knob is awesome..matches PERFECTLY with my stock radio)
    - buttons and switches for the screen and switch the music from XM to PC and vice versa, power button for the laptop.
    - Jensen Remote control
    - 1X4 port USB hub with custom 5V power supply.
    - IRMAN (infrared receiver for the PC)
    - USB Rikaline Bluetooth GPS
    - USB Bluetooth receiver for DUN with my verizon v710.( wireless internet )
    - Bluetooth Foldable Palm Keyboard
    - Modified Jeff Much shutdown controller, modified to start my laptop as well.
    - USB touchpad (hardly need to use it since the LCD is a touchscreen.

    Total cost was somewhere $1000-$1500.

    I basically moved the stock LCD to the bottom compartment by extending a bunch of wires (40 or so), and put the xenarc there instead. Almost a perfect fit. =) didn't even have to gut the case etc...
    Only had to extend the wires for the xenarc buttons.
    Audio input is pretty much an aux in. I tapped into the XM input in the trunk using 4PDT relay. With a flip of a switch i can go from computer to XM sound.

    Sound clarity is awesome. The stock sound system is something I would not dream of replacing (5.1 dvd audio system).

    I'm still in the process of adding OBDII as well. I have some more pics of my install here and in the following pages in this thread:

    Make sure you put that laptop somewhere that it can breathe easy. Dells are terrible in heat

    Nice setup... I am actually working on my mods to my 04' TL w/ navi. Will post pics when I am completely done. I have been following ur threads in this forum as well as acura-tl.com. Nice work, I am doing something a little diff, but it is nice to see someone do something to their TL already. Gives me some foundation...
