    Arrow BMW 320i Carputer Installation

    The installation is finally finished. Current setup includes:

    -Travla C134 case
    -M10000 M/B
    -512MB Ram
    -80GB HDD
    -Slim DVD
    -Lilliput VGA 7" Touch Screen
    -Media Engine Front End
    (I need a BMW skin urgent )

    The Carputer is powered by a Dual Out DC/DC converter for the Travla case.
    I use the project now only for multimedia use: mp3's, movies, DVD's.
    Hopefully in the near future it will have some other uses as well.
    The audio is amplified by a Pioneer head unit for now, I have some plans that include an AMP and some 8" subwoofers.

    Check out some photos:

    Hey, nice install! I have a question, how did you rename your Auxilary to Carputer on your Pioneer. I have a Pioneer Premier DEH-P350, and I would like to do the same.

    Thanks,

    Rafster

    In order to rename the AUX input on the Pioneer:
    1. Go to AUX mode
    2. Press Func and keep it pressed until "TITLE IN" apears
    3. Type the title of the AUX input using the cursors on the right
    4. Done !
