    Holden VY Commodore Install

    Hey all just thought i would show off what ive done so far with my car computer, Ive been having issues with power supplies, finally bit the bullet and ordered an opus but the rest of the system looks dodgy so ill just show the good looking bits at the moment, anywhere theres only a few pics will update with more later.







    Its Running an Epia MII10000 board currently a morex PSU which is getting RMAed, however soon ill have my opus, headunit removal will be the next thing, thinking of 2 LCDs 1 touch screen one for GPS display

    Anyway injoy, will post more later

    Nice job Milo. I plan on getting a GTO and was thinking about molding a touchscreen into the black trim piece right above the AC vents in the center console. I think it would be much easier to see and use in that position. What do you think?

    Well on the VY thats about the only place i could do where i wasnt going to change the whole centre binnicale look, unless you remove the head unit and do a full car computer, which i wasnt game enuff to try yet then unless its not mounted in the dash thats it, I also put the screen down there and covered it in black persepex because that screen gives off a nasty glow even on low contrast and brightness, actually most LCDs will do this, and i didnt want every cop i drove by pulling me over cause theres a unhealthy glow in the car.

    So if its down low with a few things in the way ( shifter etc etc ) then it can difuse some of the light, the bodgy way i had the screen installed before ( same spot just jammed in there) was way to bright and was actually a distraction when driving.

    However with a touch screen yes it would be rather hard to use in the position i have but it would not be in easy task to fit a 7" screen into that spot

    Hi Milo

    I've been watchin these forums for a week now, and.. hrm, i've already brought myself a EPIA Mini ITX M10000 board.. talk about a addiction.. oh, and i've ordered a 7" lilliput touchscreen and gps as well :>

    Which frontend software are you using in the pictures? frodo? or something else? i'm still new to that, as i havnt trialed many of the players available yet.

    Regards,

    Danny
