    2003 Nissan Altima

    Been working on my carputer for over 2 years now and i have had about 4 different versions, let me know what you think.

    Version3 with an 8" lilliput was scrapped because i thought the screen looked out of place, i used a laptop under the passenger seat in this setup.

    New install on page2

    Version 4

    In Version4 i switched to a 7" lilliput, i cut the buttons off my factory radio and molded it into the bezel. The buttons are hooked to the computer via a hacked up keyboard and the volume knob is actually a 8way directional switch and rotary encoder, hooked up to a mouse for the rotary function and a keyboard for the directional function.

    PC SPECS
    Amd xp 2000+ in Asus A7n8x-vm400
    512mb ddr266
    Bu-303

    Fm radio Mouse
    Steering wheel controls to change volume and tracks also a Push to talk button to activate navivoice.

    I am currently working on version5 which will hopefully be that last one, i will have some in progress pictures which i will put up in a few days.

    Thanks i will put some more pics later on tonight. I use to have the computer between the rear fender and a brace in the trunk. It was in there for over a year till i decided to relocate it.

    i got rid of the 8" because i wanted more of a factory look, plus the buttons makes things a lot easier when driving and now i can live without them but at times i do miss the size of the 8".

    Do you have any details on how you made the 8-way/rotary switch? Where did you get the control?

    Excellent work!
