    This is the new price I initially said $1300 for everything but I decided to build my own computer. I think it's going to come out better with the Intel Atom Processor and 2 gig of ram.

    I'm going to mount the LCD in the lower dash area and as for the PC I initially thought it would be nice if I could fit it in the center arm rest area but I think it might be too tight. So the other options is the glove compartment or under the passenger seat.
    I'm going to use the car2pc to retain the controls on my factory HU and the steering wheel controls.

    So I need some advice the Xenarc or the Lilliput. Which one is better? Has anyone fitted a Xenarc or a Lilliput using the lower dash attachment?
    Also any suggestions on the power?

    I measured out the lower dash I think the shortest width which is at the bottom of the V shaped is around 7.5" and I think the lilliput monitor width dimensions are 7.2" So I'll try to do some modification and try to get it to fit into the lower dash.

    ^ Thanks Jon,


    I am actually working now on a Lilliput monitor into the lower dash. I am not sure if the customer is a member here, but I will post pics up. The fabrication is best done with the OEM Honda Bezel, not the cheap one on ebay.

    1st Step

    I started setting up the computer and the touch screen lcd monitor. The intel atom runs nice with tinyxp. There was one mistake in my part... I brought a 2.5" hard drive and the case that I brought only comes with a slot for 3.5" I'm going to get a adapter of some sort. By the way where is the best place to mount the computer? I was thinking in the trunk but the wire runs will be long... also I would like to wire an amp in the future how do I split the power wires up?

    Well development has come to a stand still as I have no extra monitor and my lilliput just crapped out. It keeps on saying no input signal when it's connected to the vga source. I think there are some other people that had the same problem. I brought it off www.carpc4u.com and hopefully they will give me a new one. I think the problem is with the wire itself.
