    yeah thats just the power supply.. it dosen't regulate any 12 volt input.. my case only came with that board but i used the car 12volt regulator I bought previously which works well. I got a Just Cooler Remote controller to turn it on and off cause it sits int he back of the car.. Makes it much easier.

    The GPS is up and running.. Works rather well actually. I just need touch screen now to make punching in the destination easier.. lol















    Just a Pic of the stereo setup

    Bottom pic shows the car pc.. It's kinda messy but you can see the USB hub and the pc secured under the amps.

    Hey VXcarpc, looking good.

    What sort of GPS software are you using there? Are the maps comprehensive?

    Love the rig dude

    Thanks for your comments.. It's been a while since i've been on here.. My screen is just a generic one off ebay.. Shipped from Hong Kong. I want to add some touch screen to it but never realy got around to it.

    I use Map Monkey software built on destinator software. Seems to work well. I use a Mouse USB GPS reciever which i just stick out the back of the car. You can't see it when it's tucked under the back window spoiler.


    I have a new DSLR camera so i'll take some updated pictures of my setup soon!

    *** 25/07/06 Update ***

    I've updated my setup. I will post some pics soon. I have since this last update gotten a upgrade from a mounted screen to a in-dash screen and soon to be touch screen. I have cleaned up all yhe loose wires and re-designed my sub woofer box for the 4th time since I got my car. Pictures will follow soon.
