pics dont work T_T
I wrote this all up for the scionrg forum so I just did a cut and paste. So that's why I describe some of the features that all of you are already aware of. Let me know what you think and if you hav any suggestions on how to make it better.
So I finally took pictures of my carputer. I had it done more than 6 months ago but always forgot to take some pictures.
View of the touchscreen and keyboard with a mouse wheel on it.
Close up of the touchscreen. I had to modify the casing for the touchscreen but got it to fit.
Close up of the glove box with the keyboard. Fits nicely in there and it matches the interior of the car..
Armrest compartment. I have a 4 port USB hub. One goes to the keyboard, the other goes to the Bluetooth USB stick and I have to open ports.
2 Sets of RCA jacks. One set is an audio input into the amp for things like an I-pod or CD player or anything with a headphone jack. The other pair is for the 2 video inputs on the Xenarc. I got one of those Dual portable DVD players from target so I can go between each video input and watch either one of the 2 movies up front... :-)
Close up of the touchscreen friendly GPS interface. I love this thing..
Emulator. I can play Nintendo Games, Sega, Gameboy...This one is an old school game I used to love...you might recognize it...
This is the trunk of the car. I modified it to get some cooling where the computer is. It can get really hot in there. One fan is an intake and the other is an exhaust..
Close up of the fan...
Car computer setup. I have a C drive with all the program stuff, D drive with all the music files, computer, USB hub for 4 more inputs which has the wireless adapter, GPS and USB audio adpater.
This is the second car I did the car computer on. I love it because I have unlimited music (I'm tired of what I hear on the radio all the time). I can play movies, surf the web and the best part is the GPS. I never have to worry about finding directions. I just punch the address in and that's it.
I'm still working on doing some more stuff like getting the computer to read diagnostics and maybe a rear view camera ( I can't think of a good reason for it but it would be cool).
The fab work was not too bad. I had to remove all the buttons from the touchscreen but I kept the remote and sensor so I can access everything through there.
The touchscreen and the computer setup fit great. It's like it was a perfect fit....
Yeah, pics not there
I wanna see the pics... also
Upgrading pc 99%
BUMP...Let me know if the pics work.....
My last carputer project...
1992 Acura Legend
yay, thats better
basically the same kind of install into the trunk that im planning
very cool job and clean install. I love the fans. do u mind sharing where u got the grills. my setup is similar in the trunk but i need to get some grills.
I got them at microcenter. You can find them online. I went to the store in Cambridge MA. I think that they are easy to find. I would have liked it better if I could have gotten some with the SCION logo...
veritas forge can make some with the scion logo. PM him for a quote, he has really good prices. his screen name is "Veritas Forge"
