Volvo removable carpc
I'm using my CarPC for a while now, but untill now i wasn't able to share it with you all. Now i can!
My goal was to build a easy to remove system:
1) The monitor because of theft risk
2) The system because it's handy for updating
3) The whole thing, because i buy a new car every now and then. (want to keep the car stock)
Surf to carpc.winand.nl and check it out
Very nice install... I like it.
Great website too! Very informative... Where did you put the CPU in the car though?
Edit: nevermind, just saw that part... but what about when someone sits in that seet? Their feet rest on the computer?
Thanks for sharing your experiences.
When someone sits behind the passenger seat, his/her feet rest on the system case indeed. the floor is only 5.5 cm higher.
The solid steel case can deal with the pressure easily. (I didn't try to stand on it with my total of 85 kg, but then again, you're not able to stand up in a volvo estate :) )
I would be worried about someone kicking a wire or part or putting too much pressure on it when getting into the car or moving around.
Nice install man, nice car too! ;)
In the beginning I was planning a removable install too... it somehow got out of hand :o
Way to go!
@domisi: The wires are all under the seat, even if you try, you can't reach them with your feet :) Also, the whole thing is covered with a exact fitting floor mat. Dont have to worry at all.
