Where Do I Mount My Screen?
One of the first questions that nearly every newcomer to the MP3Car
.com community asks is Where am I going to mount my screen?
This is one of the most important aspects of your install. If your screen is not easily readable or easily accessible, the benefits of having a computer in your car are negated. Mounting your screen in such a manner that it is out of sunlight, within reach, and possibly even hidden from prying eyes, are the most important factors to your screen install.
A good place to start looking for ideas is to check out the worklogs
or finished projects
forums. Do a quick search
