Looks nice dude. Any pics of the car/actual computer?
In the last days, I installed my CarPC. I decided to use a dashin-screen, because it ist not so difficult to install. Here you can see some pictures:
Some better pics of the dashin and the computer will follow. First I have to solve my problems with noises.
'02 Toyota Celica TS
Carputer progress : [#######---]
Currently working on : software ...
Parts : IBM thinkpad X60 wired up in the booth (T7200 - 1.5Gb Ram - 320GB HD)
Parts needed: USB wifi dongle (with external antenna)
Ok here are some other pics. On the first photo you can see, that I´m not very interested in working. So the installation of the PC is very easy. The PC is a Pentium System with a Celeron 1,7 Ghz which is cooled with a heatpipe. The PC has no fans.
The monitor ist a motorized dash-in K301 touchscreen. The system is completed by a gps-mouse and a wireless-lan usb adapter, so I can surf in the Internet, when a hotspot is in neighbourhood.
As my radio was already equipped with a Navigation-System, I have now two Navigation-Systems. It is funny to see, that for one target every system has its own meanig about the right track.
The radio has an aux-in and if you switch to aux-mode you can program the display to any text you like.Originally Posted by John_Duh
he didn't use a laptop unless that is one oddly shapped laptop.
You need to get that computer wired directly to the battery. Thats probably your source of noise.... Using the cig socket.
Wire it in properly and i bet it will cut down on the noise. Also are you using an invertor or DC-DC PSU?

Yes its an dc-dc psu. At the moment it is connected to the lighter for cigarettes. I´ve orderd a NF-Filter and an external soundcard(usb) an I hope after installation of that the noises will be vanished.Originally Posted by antimatter
