    I'm using Centrafuse as a front end. I'm upset too about the AV switch. Everytime I put my car in the reverse I have to manually switch to AV, and believe me, after you've done this a few hundred times it just gets all the fun out of it...

    Simply serial input circuit

    and

    Gamma control by light sensor

    (basically the same kind of thing) I'm using the latter with the source code but it's so simple to add extra inputs later.

    I'm using the serial input program in the latter to launch FrodoCam set to cover up the 'application' area of Centrafuse, and when I get out of reverse it kills frodocam.

    I'm using the reverse lamp circuit to power up the camera at present. So selecting reverse gear is also switching the camera on & off. Is that what you mean ? I'm not too good on theretical or physical circuits.

    Another Addition

    Hi All,

    Just added a Toad 8" RCA Flip-down roof screen to the carpc system. Bit of a PIG to setup, could't get a useful video signal out of my Epia M10K RCA output so I used the S-Video port with a S-VHS to RCA adapter.

    Included are a few Pics of the results...hope you like them

    Anyone for an Armrest ?

    Just while I'm still in "upload mode"
    How about an Add-on central Armrest for the 'Cus.
    Very handy for keeping carpc "bits" in, GPRS phones, bluetooth adapters, charging leads etc.
