I also have the large 19 inch flip down which obstructs my view. What I decided to do is have cameras on all 4 sides, front, back, left and right. All these cameras feed into a Quad Processor which allows all cameras to be seen on one screen. That then feeds back to the PC, which records it all. Then I have a 10.2 screen that automatically has a built in splitter. It splits the image into 3 equal areas, left, middle, right. Its on from the time I start the car and turn it off.



    I agree, mine gets about 4 car lengths worth of lanes. Only thing is, the distance is a little tricky. Where as in standard mirrors, objects can be seen really close, objects in the camera can seem farther then they actually are. As I mentioned before, all of them can be shown from one display. You can either buy a new display that has the splitter feature built in, or you can buy a Digital Quad Processor, like this one. http://cgi.ebay.com/4-CH-Digital-CCT...item2a06012ef7. Then you simply buy a SSD relay from Curiosity and connect it to the DQP. You wire it in a way so that when you turn on the car, it goes into 3 way view. This was the method I used before I bought the screen that does that natively.
    Thanks for the tip. I was actually looking for something like this that was affordable. I was looking for multiplexers rather than digital quad processors. I will look into a solution using the digital quad processor. My next challenge is the monitor. I prefer one with built in splitter capablility.

    I would go for the screen I got then. Its was only $110.00. What I did was sell my screen for $70.00, so I only had to shell out $40.00 to get the one with built in splitter. Here is a link to it.

    Only issue I see is that there is no price, you have to email them to get the price. Also the camera that comes with this screen is awesome.

    Here we go again...

    So...I came across the Arcos 9 PC tablet and by just looking at the specs it has everything I basically have or plan to have for my CarPC. It runs windows 7 and has USB ports ...blah blah.. LED backlit 8" screen..

    Hmmm...I see a remix to my CarPC project. This would make my CarPC ultra mobile like when I had my EEEPC as my CarPC.

    Only this time I could actually install Centrafuse. You can use your smartphone internet connectivity as well as Wifi. They also have this with Android which would be cool, but I want Centrafuse installed and Windows 7 has been cool thus far.

    I just need to design a mount that will allow me to secure the unit while driving and also provide a means to unmount it with ease for ultra portability.

    My current CarPC I will continue to build and probably use it for the back seat passenger entertainment.

    I found a thread that touches on replacing the HDD with an SSD on the Arcos 9. I would prefer to do that if I decide on purchasing this unit.

    Bluetooth OBDII for Android

    It feels like I've been working on the same CarPC project for years now...I keep having new ideas so it keeps evolving. I am now considering using a tablet PC as my car pc. Tablet PC's are low footprint and less hardware and get the job done if you're not planning on hardcore computing in your car. The ipad is nice and all but is too proprietary for me and too pricey. There are tons of other tablet PC's out there and this includes those running Android OS.

    I came across a website that sells a reasonably priced bluetooth OBDII (On Board Diagnostics) device that can be used with android OS. It even lists a few of the compatible apps available on the market. The reviews are great and this is making me lean towards getting an Android-based tablet PC. I have been extremely happy with my Android Eris phone.

    If you are a CarPC enthusiast check out the PLX Kiwi Bluetooth OBDII device.

    If I decide to go with this then I will for sure review it here in the forum.

    You have Tech A.D.D like me. Its like you come up with something and it mutates into something else. At least you have a running unit, lol. I keep changing my setups in the middle of installs. Now on my 4th setup, I am hopping its the final one.

    Ha ha ha. You guys. No different than the rest of us. Even when I'm finished, I'm never finished. Either I go through project withdrawls, and need to do something, or I'm never satisfied so need bigger and better (Tim the Tool Man Taylor?). So ya, mine will never be done. LOL.

    Overhead 7" Flip Down Monitor

    So...for my "revised" project I plan on replacing my lcd rearview mirror with an overhead 7" or 8" flip down monitor for my backup camera. I want to use a better quality LCD that is LED backlit. My concern is the possible obstruction in the front window. Do you think the monitor once its flipped down will be about the same distance from the ceiling as my rearview mirror?

    Does anyone have any reviews or suggestions about overhead flipdown monitors in a sedan?...we all know how they are in SUV's where you have more space.

    This is not the specific model I want but so you know what I am referring to. I prefer one that is LED backlit.

    Why Overhead Flipdown?

    You may ask me why choose an over head flipdown instead of an indash doubledin monitor. That is because my new project plan will have an Android Tablet PC in the place where normally you would have your LCD. Just above that my car has a storage bin which would have been for navigation system if my car had factory upgrades. I plan on using the upper storage bin for the monitor that displays my side view cameras split screen.
