    Fiat Punto Cabrio CarPC - btbe is back

    After being away from the car pc business for some time because of a lack of money, time and a broken touchscreen.
    But this summer I got a new car and started form the scratch...

    And thats whats done:
    Installed a second 55Ah battery in the trunk, connected via a relais which is closed for charging 15 seconds after th ignition is on. Added a 1F PowerCap to stableize the current.
    The CarPC is also localized in the trunk. Specs:
    U-Buddy Barebone
    P4 2,0GHz
    512MB DDR Ram
    60GB 2,5" HDD
    M2-ATX 160W PowerSupply
    8-Channel parallel Relais Card
    Haicom GPS
    7" TFT Touchscreen w Autobrightness
    BT-Stick
    WLAN
    Freecom DVB-T Stick

    Guess thats it ... Lets get over to the pictures:

    More Pics and Details of the work done on my car can be found on my Website

    More Pics of the monitor-mount can be found in my Gallery

    And some more pics of the relais control connected to my windows can also be found in my gallery.

    Some more information of a tracking software im writing at the moment will be avalible here on the board soon.


    PS: I apologize for my worse english. I'm a little bit out of practice...

    Planed:
    • UMTS Router for mobile Internet Access (Ordered)
    • Car Tracking Software (in development)
    • Exchanging the 8-Channel parallel relais card with one or more serial relais cards (need to write control software / help welcome)
    • The speakers-part


    Any suggestions are welcome!!!

    I have recieved a few donations for the iDrive skin and seeing as you are the originator of it I think some of that should go your way.

    If you have PM me the details. (it may not be much but it all helps.)
