    Mercedes Benz C-Class W203 Sedan Install

    First carputer installation.
    Setup runs as follows:
    7" Xenarc 700TSV Touchscreen monitor
    Alpine CDA-9856 Headunit w/ detachable faceplate
    Carnetix P1900 psu/shutdown controller w/5V output
    Aopen Mini Pandora
    Aopen minipci wireless wifi card
    Fujitsu 80gig HD
    Intel Pentium M 1.6 GHz Processor
    D-Link 7-port usb powered hub
    BU-353 GPS receiver
    Turtle Beach Audio Advantage Mini Usb soundcard
    Scorpius P20 Wireless USB keyboard with Thumbstick mouse
    JL Audio 500/1 Amp
    JL Audio 300/2 Amp
    CDT Audio 6.5" components
    CDT Audio 6.5" fillers
    JL Audio 12" 12W6V2 subwoofer

    Started off by buying a trim kit for the w203 sedan, used fiberglass bondo to attach to the 700tsv face.



    Some sanding and applied bondo filler, filled in small gaps with Squadron green putty




    Added primer and more sanding for final coat of paint


    Tore car apart, headunit and carnetix are placed behind the monitor


    My amps


    Detachable Faceplate extension using CAT6 cable


    Wifi Antenna placed on passenger side top. Reception is pretty darn good.


    Glove compartment box with usb hub and Aopen minipc. Kinda messy.. havent had time to hide all the wires.


    Wireless keyboard with mousestick


    Final result


    Roadrunner Running Iguidance

    Got it from overstock.com search for the scorpius. Works really well, even with the glove compartment box closed, it still functions when im outside my car.

    I like it, we should keep in touch since I have plans to tackle the Canbus and get the steering wheel buttons mapped into the CarPC.

    Here's a link to my CarPC install (more pics to come):

    How do you get navigation? I mean even with the internet, you need a router right? Or can you use the stock navigation system?

    from one fellow w203 owner to another, FANTASTIC JOB!

    i have the same D-link USB unit in my car also

    i wish i could do mine like yours. did u have a bose system and scrap that to get JL? I had a bose system in the car, and since everything runs on fiber optic, i didn't want to mess with it. plus the amps and speakers were already in place, so it was easier to get the logjam unit. where about are you located?

    I love this installation. Your bezel looks amazing! The detachable faceplate using CAT6 cabling is a very clever idea.

    Have you made any other modifications to the car PC since you installed it?
