    2002 Camry Sportivo V6 Manual

    Well I finally upgraded from the 97 Corolla Seca. And I have upgraded to a 2002 Camry Sportivo

    Its Silver that looks like a greenie colour during the day, i think its called morning dew or something like that...

    Its got the High Spoiler and TRD grille, Sunroof, King Springs (My mate discovered them (i was too excited and didn't notice) - looks like super lows but i don't know), 17x7 Vortex Toyota Rims, and then all the standard V6 Sportivo features.

    I have currently upgraded the sound system, and soon plan to add my carputer again (once i can sort out the software... GPS is proving to be a difficult thing for us Aussies )

    The current specs are: Headunit: Pioneer DEH-P6850MP, Pioneer iPod adaptor, Apple iPod 40Gb 4th Gen, Front: Focal 1656KP K2s, Rear: Stock, Kicker Solo-Baric L7 12" DVC 4ohm (Parallel at 2 ohm), Sub Amp: Response 820W Monoblock (700WRMS at 2 ohm)

    And my Carputer Specs are: Via Epia M10000 1Ghz Mini-Itx CPU and Mobo, M1-ATX, 256Mb DDR Ram, 120Gb 2.5" HDD, Slim Slot-load DVD+/-RW, USB GPS, USB WiFi, USB BT, Lilliput EBY-701

    I've attached some pics of the car, and the current sounds system...
    What i plan on doing is, mounting my Lilliput EBY-701 where my headunit currently is, this will require fabrication, as the lilliput it taller than the hole (not the screen just the case) and narrower than the hole... And then shift the headunit down to the area in front of the gear stick (again fabrication will be required to make a single din mounting point there...)

    For software i am in the process of working on a VB.net frontend... still undecided as to if i'll use it or not... but i am not happy with RR and Centrafuse costs too much... (though it does have D6 integrated which is almost worth buying it for...) The reason i am wanting to create my own is i want to make it easy to use and work as though it was a factory item (like the factory GPS system that you can get for them... but with more features...) And i also want it to be all integrated into the app itself none of this embedding apps (which still doesn't make them totally touchsreen friendly)...

    Any suggestions? or tips yet?

    Biggy well I am already subscribed to your thread Yeah i am pretty happy with how it goes... I am yet to put it down the 1/4 mile... the trip to willowbank will happen though

    Dennis5587, they are really nice, quite decent midbass and nice sound quality, I do want to get my doors sound deadened though, and get the tweeters aligned professionally... (I have already got the speakers installed just don't have any photos yet, and i am currently on holidays for two weeks in Victoria (at my GF's place ) so i don't have my car with me...)

    This what i would like my screen to turn out like:

    I quite like the buttons too... I was thinking of seeing if i could get some of those buttons and interface them to the computer's serial port or something like that... though i might need to get the button surround too so i could make the nice hole the the buttons are in...

    I have another thread looking for suggestions on how to actually mount the screen...

    Look what i just won on Ebay: http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI....m=290290598971

    This should be a fair bit quicker and more responsive than the Via EPIA M10000 Mini-ITX board i've got atm...

    Progress Shots: First one is from about a week ago, last one was from my progress from after work this afternoon

    Long time since an update... I've had a renewed burst of energy (I'm getting married in 3 weeks, so would be good to have it done before I move in with my wife as we will only have a small flat with very little area to work)

    I've got the new mobo, Its an Axiomtek SBC86807 Mini-ITX motherboard with a Intel Pentium M 1.8Ghz CPU and 1GB DDR Ram. Rest of the specs of the carputer are, 120GB 2.5" IDE Hard Drive, Pioneer Slot-Load DVD+-RW, M1-ATX 12V PSU, Navibe USB GPS, USB Bluetooth, ASUS WL-138G WiFi and Molded in Dash Lilliput EBY701.

    Heres a couple of pictures of the carputer in its current status:







    Any suggestions for a good spot filler for those little holes that I have left to finish...?

    Looks like it's coming along quite nicely. That dash is gonna look neat when it's done

    Where are you mounting the PC? Trunk?

    Yeah I hope so :-)

    I'm thinking of mounting the PC under my drivers seat, other wise I'll need to get a long VGA cable, and long USB cable to a powered USB hub. What do other people do?

    Thanks for the interest and comments :-)
