2003 PT Cruiser GT install
I have always had all of my music ripped to hard disks, and have used a variety of methods for automating and controlling music playback in the house. I love having all of music available at any time in any room.
In order to extend that experience to the car, earlier this year I purchased the Mopar iPod integration kit, which lets you listen to and control an ipod from various Chrysler radios.
I also have various handhelds and GPS units that I have used over the years in the car.
Then I found mp3Car....
Jetway JF72 Motherboard - Via 2.0 GHz processor, 1GB memory
Xenarc MDT-X7000 7" in-dash touchscreen
M2-ATX 160W intelligent DC-DC power supply
OCZ SSD2-1C32G 32GB SSD drive - system and software
Verbatim Smartdisk 250GB external firewire drive - media
Dlink 802.11G USB wireless network
Generic USB Bluetooth adapter
Andrea USB-SA microphone
Delorme Earthmate LT-40 USB GPS
Elmscan 5 OBDII bluetooth interface
cheap microsoft wireless keyboard and mouse (to be replaced)
iGuidance 2009 GPS Navigation software
nlite'd Windows XP Pro SP3
All speakers have already been replaced with Inifinity Reference series
Alpine MRV-F307 4 channel amp
Chrysler dash install kit
Chrysler wiring harness
Things to try out later
Optimus Mini-Three OLED keyboard
Visteon HD Radio
PC had been bench-tested for a while as I try out things.
Installation will go in stages:
- Get the Xenarc touchscreen installed and working as radio/cd
- Install the computer and related USB bits
- Rewire the speakers and install the Alpine amp
This lets me keep the factory wiring intact, and the amps in the Xenarc will eventually only be used to send a signal to the Mopar subwoofer.
