94 Accord Wagon CarPC Worklog *updated April 12*
1994 Honda Accord Wagon EX :rock:
April 12, 2010
Carputer installation was finished last year but I unfortunately I had no time to post up pictures and such as the Canadian weather caught up with me.
That being said, the Acer netbook I was using died on me because of the cold so I have been carputer-less for the whole winter...
Now that the warmer weather is back, I am revamping the carputer - new brains, new centre console - and even thinking of hacking apart my dash even further... but it is all time dependent...
I'll still be using the Lilliput 7"in screen, but this time I'll be mounting it in the center console. (I previously had it mounted and built a center console around it, which proved different, but it is not factory looking IMO)
The new brains of the carputer is a Asus EEEbox 1.6GHz upgraded and overclocked to 1.7GHz with 2GB ram and a 64GB SSD to prevent it from dying on me in extreme weather ;)
Front end is undecided yet, but I have been playing with XBMC and a MCE remote - however it lacks a built in GPS function (or maybe a lack of integration into the interface - at least to my knowledge, but this is where I'm hoping to implement my iPhone into the picture)
Sometime this week hopefully Ill post some pics up of the mockup that I am going for.
