    I cleaned up some of the wiring this weekend, re-did some grounds, and re-routed what I could.

    This will be my next purchase for my car computer system:



    It is the Phoenix SOHO PCI Conference Card. The only problem is that I have one PCI slot, and it is being used, but there is a solution! There is a thread where forum member Salmizar figured out how to power the PCI card externally, and was able to achieve awesome echo-canceling results for car phone conferencing. Just needs 5V that you can get from the 5V rail on your power supply, or you can hack up a USB cable to get the power instead. They even tell how to make an external enclosure for it!! It is basically used as a pass-through for sound, so that the card can execute hardware echo cancellation.



    You can find the info here: http://forums.fluxmedia.net/general-...enix-soho.html

    2010 Updates: Re-did my motherboard mounting, and will now be using a SATA drive. Also picked up a Preassembled Black Double Din LCD Frame with 7" Lilliput 629GL-70NP/C/T.

    I love the new screen. It is bright, and reads good even in direct sunlight!! The knob is for boost control for the turbo system.

    I was considering that screen for the Z. Has it worked pretty good for you?
    Any day is a good day for golf.

    Works perfectly! Bright and readable in direct sunlight as well... All you need is the proper Metra radio dash install kit, and you are good to go!

    It seems that my old Deluo GPS receiver died, so I replaced it with a Globalsat BU-353.
