there are only a few people up there with truckputers.
You would be a great addition.
great install, found ur original log back in august and u inspired me to install one in my '07 f150. another good site to post would be f150 online dot com. i think i have only seen 1 or two at the most truckputers. 3 once i finish mine next month my username is the same as on this site. was also going to ask when you painted your bezel did u use regular paint or SEM paint? I'm trying to find a paint that will kinda match the flat/satin black that is on the face of the OEM radio or that you see on the ac/controls
it's SEM satin black - matches perfectly
and make sure you use their plastic primer
i tried another and it wasnt compatible
I can't believe I did it, but my truck is going bye-bye on Monday. It just got too expensive on gas and too big to justify as a commuter vehicle... that's really all I do nowdays.
Anyway, I'm getting an '09 Murano and really doubt it'll need a car'puter. We'll see I guess.
Anyone need any parts? I suppose I could sell the bezel/touchscreen assembly if an F150 owner wanted it. (It'll only fit one with a flow through center console.) Same story with the computer I suppose.
that really sucks...
all that hard work.
I hear ya on the gas part, its the same for me. I have been driving my wife's explorer instead of my truck.
What are your prices?
Give me some time to work up a list of stuff and prices...
You live in Austin?
My Xwife lives in Killeen.
I lived in Copperas Cove for a few years. Father is was in the army a few years ago.
Well, NW Austin... near Cedar Park.
I just noticed that I never put finished pics of version 2.0 -- will have to do that (although it's out of the truck)
Let's see if I can list out all the stuff I have...
F150 (FX4 or Lariat edition with flow through center console) modified center bezel with transflectively modified 8.4" touchscreen (800x600): $400 (trust me that's damn cheap compared to cost, labor ignored) -- to get this to fit, you'll have to slightly modify the dash behind the bezel so that there is room to fit the monitor. It doesn't affect the look or fit. Also, please look at the installed (and pre-install) pics above to see if it would fit your truck. Also note that the clarion controller is very much custom fit into the bezel so if you didn't go the clarion route, you'll have to fill the hole somehow.
Clarion DSP unit (the DSP and controller should stay together) with modified cable to add a TOSLINK plug on the source end: $200
Amps aren't for sale.
10" Punch sub in custom (black) box that fits under the rear seat of a Supercrew: $100
SiLabs AM/FM radio unit with motorola style antenna already soldered to it: $25
PS2 USB wireless keyboard thingy -- the very little one -- works fine with PC, can be finicky if plugged into hub: $10
I have licenses for both Streetdeck (and it's bluetooth phone dongle) and Centrafuse (w/phone support, I use mappoint nav option): make an offer on SD, CF -- $100
Then antenna for WiFi stayed in the truck because I was too lazy to pull it out.
Here's what's in the PC; Pics above show what it looks like and I'll post more of the 2.0 version as it looks now. I suppose someone can talk me out of it for $500.
iBase MB899 (really nice iTX MB)
512MB (could throw in another 512 stick)
Intel Core Duo (2.5Ghz I think -- horsepower was never an issue, nor was cooling)
Main HDD is an SSD, that's not for sale
Secondary HDD (which could become the primary) is an 80G 2.5" SATA in a cool removable cartridge -- pics of what that looks like are in posts above above
M2-ATX PS (mounted in chassis)
PCI video capture card (composite conn exits chassis, svideo conn is covered by chassis, but you could mod the chassis easy enough) for rearview camera (no camera -- that stayed in the hole on the bumper)
7 port (3 internal, 4 external) USB hub is mounted to the HDD enclosure (see above pics)
Wireless mini-PCI card (Intel Centrino 802.11g)
fans for appropriate cooling (one is controlled by CPU temp -- rarely even came on, the other has a speed controller and is used to push air into or out of the chassis)
custom harness that mates to the external harness (that plugs right into the F150 radio harness -- you still have to run a decent power and ground -- my ground was a large brace behind the bezel, power was from the fuse box at the passenger's feet area) It also has the amp control lead coming out of it (that routes to the clarion, the clarion then turns on the amps)
No CD/DVD drive anymore. I do have a tray load slim type if you wanted to try and mount it.
can I get your number?
email it to me if you could please...

what version of centrafuse?
