I started this project about a week and a half ago. First, after consulting with my buddy about his carputer, i went out and selected the hardware. i have a VIA Epia PD10000, C3 1GHz CPU, 512 RAM, 80GB HD, all inside a TRAVLE c137 case with the M1 ATX smart power supply. So for the last week I've been tweaking the software. I got Road runner as the front end, using a slightly modified simplistiqu skin, along with Map monkey and destinator for the GPS. So far, works like a champ.
I started this weekend by mounting the monitor. Thought it would be a lot harder but it turned out to be allright.
Got the monitor installed into the dash. Man, this Xenarc 700TSV was almost a perfect fit. I had to do a little filing if the sides, but once done, it fits very nicely!
