    2000 Chevy Suburban install

    I moved my install to the truck from the Corvette. Thought I'd post some pictures, as the only people to see any of it are TruckinMP3 and dingofarmer in January. I wasn't finished installing at the time.

    I ran 4 guage wire from the engine bay, under the truck and into the cabin under the rear drivers side door. I used a fairly hefty amp install kit from walmart. The PC sits underneath the second row passenger seat on the drivers side. Notice the switchbox I hacked together at the front to turn of power & control whether the PC come on with the ignition. The cables for screen etc run under the floormat and then underneath the center console. Hidden underneath the center console is a gyration keyboard wireless receiver, a USB 2.0 powered hub and a 3-way cigar-lighter adapter. The lilliput screen sits in a plinth that fits in the console cubby hole.

    It looks quite good, though I may look into moving the heating controls to the center console and puting a non-motorized in-dash in their place. It performs really good and has no problems with video or iGuidance.

    I'll happily answer questions anyone may have :-)

    Here is the truck, and the pc under the 2nd row passenger seat:

    Here it is with the seat lifted. There is enough clearance for the lit fan to extract properly.

    Also a picture of the screen mounted with the RAM mount and the trackball (touchscreen isn't as accurate as I'd like):

    A closer picture of the RAM mount and trackball. The cigar lighter with the light has a switch that controls power to the screen, the USB hub and my radar detector. I fabricaated a shelf that sits in my cupholder area to sit the trackball onto.

    The wires going under the door will hook up to either my PSP or the Apacer USB-to-go hard disk I transfer files with:

    Thanks, its one of these.

    Take the AC power supply out and the Opus 150 just fits in its place...on its side...with the case removed....and a teeny bit of modification to the case.

    I'll add a picture of whats inside soon.

    Sweet! Nice case too. What do those buttons next to the case do?
