    I got the PSU mostly installed, but I had the wires on the screen crossed when I installed it, and I think I might have fried something. I guess I should have checked the output with a voltmeter first. Everything is straight now, but I need to take the screen out and see if I can see something that is smoked.

    I ended up just getting a DPST (even though it said DPDT) switch so that it's just normal or valet mode.

    Still more work, but I had to come inside and take a break, I'll hopefully get the screen out and diagnosed tomorrow. (BTW, still waiting on the touch panel...)

    most interesting read.

    I was banging my head trying to fit an android tablet for GPS in the weird not-so-double-din space of the original radio... but your solution with the bezel remodeling is the most clever i've seen.

    i will do that after i have everything else working though

    random question: any idea of the protocol used by the radio to talk with the dashboard ... the stock radio shows the station name there... was wondering if anyone ever used that for a mod somehow.

    I actually just sold the vehicle this last week, and I have the whole bezel available for sale if you want it. (Send me a PM) This works with the Dynamix 816 monitor, but for the right price, I might be able to mold it to your screen bezel.

    I haven't seen the dash protocol modified to show any info there. From what I understand it has to do with the CAN BUS, but I never got too into it.

    That's an interesting proposal... what do you have in mind for the bezel? to be honest, i was planning to just dump an android tablet there. i don't have much time do a carputer, and all i want is a better GPS in the dash. the only feature i was going to do other than that was a sliding door for security reasons.

    i must say i love the clock, but having the GPS screen a little higher is a good trade off.

    About the CAN, i also found this http://www.mp3car.com/engine-managem...i-and-obd.html
    now i'm unsure if it uses plain CAN or that dammed crhyslerPCI.

    I was going to list it in the for sale forum and see if there are any bites. I don't have the car anymore as of last week, so I am not going to need it. If you want it, look for it there very soon.

    With how much better the tabs are now, it's not a bad idea. For my new system, I am just doing the Pioneer Appradio 2. I never really looked into the CAN stuff since when the Car PC went down, I just installed an aftermarket deck and used my smartphone for nav and sometimes music. If I were to keep the PT, I would have redone all the Car PC stuff though.

    Just to give everyone a heads up I found a Double Din Bezel 4 the 2006-2010 PT Cruiser kit on Ebay . Not sure if it works. But it looks good. -

    or just search ebay for 2006 pt cruiser double din bezel and you should be able to find it.

    Have any of you tried this kit? I would love to see pictures.
