    2000 Chevy Malibu Install









    Installed in a 2000 Chevy Malibu LS



    Im using a relay from the fuse panel to trigger the Inverter when the key turns to accessory. Audio from computer is delivered to the stock head unit using the GM9 AUX Adapter.

    ...And I tried renameing the Thread but it does not let me.

    Is that the PC mounted like a CD changer? Does not look bad to me, looks functional.

    Some more photos

    I just took some more photos, the 8-Port Ethernet switch (offers an intercar LAN for file sharing, and shared internet access through cell phone or wireless AP) and the USB 2.0 Wireless Adapter with an external connector which I used for a better signal.

    now there, its not that ghetto, seen worse before.

    Only comment i got is for you to secure the power pack for what i assume is for the router with tieraps as well so it can fall off. they tend to wiggle them selves off with vibration. Other then that, not bad, keep it up.

    whats next in mind, eh?

    Oh, for the switch, yeah, I might, but its not fallen out yet and its pretty tight. (The carputer is a 'router' for the intercar LAN.)

    Next? I have an OBD2 connection with software and all, I just need some sample VB6 source code to implement it in my frontend application. :-)
