    Since I never posted a pic of mine...



    Obviously not running Centrafuse anymore, but it still looks pretty much the same...

    Oh I did...didn't even notice that until after the pic. Just had to jiggle them a bit. I'm sure you all know how they are...

    Sometimes I consider moving the screen up top as it would be easier to access, but I think the glare would be a lot worse. I'll probably end up keeping it down there for now, but I'd be interested to see pics of anyone who's put it up top...

    The volume knob

    In place of the useless cigar lighter, i am planning to place the volume knob.
    I'm using a mouse PBC (thanks to Silencery who shipped it here in italy) and a rotary encoder for the hardware, Girder for the software, a bit of wood for the mounting and a Pepsi bottle cap for the knob!!!

    Will post some pic of the result asap.

    GPS Antenna

    I have a problem with the GPS antenna...
    Initially I have bought the BU-303 USB receiver. But driving in little streets of big italian towns (like Florence) the number of sats dramatically falls to 3/4 and the receiver loses signal...
    So i bought an Axiom Sandpiper II and an Hirschmann roof mount antenna... I am testing them, but till now i never received more than 7 channels... Axiom receiver works quite well even if only 4 channels are detected, while BU-303 needs at least 6 channels to work, but I'm not going to drill my roof if I haven't at least 10 channels on my ******* receiver...

    Any suggestion?

    Looking around seems like the Axiom Sandpiper II sucks!
    What about the Garmin GPS 15L?
