3) Radiomodule ordered price €148,25 incl Shipping and antennacable
The well known module on this Forum I guess....
USB controlled radio module
FM en AM met RDS functie,
connection for carkit en voor navigatie (Both with their own mute-connection)
works with met RR en CTF and more?
4)OBD usb interface ordered price: € 19,26 incl shipping
I will connect this interface to the OBD2-system parallel to the factoryconnector on the dash. This way VW-shop can still acces my car through the original connector on the dash.
IF I can get OBD functionality in RR or CTF, nice, if not not too bad, the main idea is allway having your diagnostic equipement with you... (I use VAGcom for my VW-diagnostics)
Found at home in the "not using anymore-corner":
ASUS TUSL2-C rev.1.04 Motherboard, with mounted on that, (if I remember correctly) a Intel P3 processor.
256MB PC133 memmorycard
ASUS V7100PRO/T/P/32M/SD/U videocard
Creative Labs CT4810 soundcard.
Maxtor Diamondmax plus8 40GB harddisk 3,5"
Yet to buy / get:
W-LAN-Card (for updates, MP3 uploads form my home-pc (car is on the driveway 5 meters from my PC)
(small)materials for connecting and finishing the installation.
software for controll and navigation (maps for europe)
Perhaps a dashboardpanel for the T4 so it can be restored to original status when it's sold without the carpc.
