    1998 Volkswagen Passat

    We'll, new car means new carputer =D

    When I got the car it had a 1-din stereo in it, but as I wanted it to look as OEM as possible I got hold of a 2-din module and "just" (some adjustments) swapped it.
    I've built a 2-din module for the Xenarc in 4mm plexi, will upload better photos of it later.

    Carputer hardware is as follows:

    Xenarc 700TSV
    Epia M10000
    512mb ram
    Opus 120w
    60gb 2.5" HDD
    BU-353
    Netgear WPN111
    D-link DBT-120

    Most of it it from my old carputer, but wlan and bluetooth has been added.

    I'm using standard WinXP Pro (swedish) with standby. I'm running FreeWay as frontend, and FreeDrive for gps.







    The carputer itself has been mounted in the sparewheel compartment, together with my amps. It has one vga and one usb cable running to the front. I had to rip everything out...









    Mounting of Mobo, HDD and PSU.



    "Finished" mounting of amps and carputer. All cables has too be shortned thou. All of it is 10mm plexi. The 400w amp drives 4 1/2" tweeters and 4 6.5" midrangers (placed in the doors). The other amp is 2x400w, bridged to 1x800w, and it drives a 12" MDS X-MAX sub.





    Finished:

    Yeah, have added some now =) When I first posted this I noticed I didn't have any of the finished install, so I took some today.

    Hur klarar sig skärmen under vintern i kylan? Det är ju ett jätte stort problem att lösa. Jag kör med avtagbar skärm, det är ju ett måste!

    Vart hittade du kartorna över sverige? har du köpt dom eller "hittat" på nätet? Ge gärna länk om du "hittat" dom

    tack

    tjo!

    Den klarar sig utmärkt. Har kört med den två vintrar redan, och det funkar perfekt. Den är dock lite långsam innan den blivit varm, men det tar högst några minuter.

    Kartorna hittade jag för länge sedan, så har tyvärr ingen aning om var de går att få tag på. Det är typ 2001 års kartor eller nått sånt :P Haha...
