Thanx guys...... Its coming along very fast. Wont be done by my bday like I wanted, but it will be very close. I got to together the 5V car chargers I riped apart for the previous car pc. I have seven 5V 1a chargers. These will power the hdmi/vga converters. Then I have nine 5V 2a chargers. These will be for the 7 Android PC units, ethernet switch, and GPS puck. The GPS for the car is a USB BU-353, but I made a special USB extension cable. Basically I detached the power wires (red/black) and only left data. Then I added a external psu. I want the puck to stay on all the time. I hate waiting for GPS lock. Because I have a monster battery in my trunk, I can power a quite a bit before killing the battery. That brings me to the next always on item. The shared Android PC will also always me on. I do not mind the personal units having to start back up all the time, but the mainly used one I want to be available fast. Because of the big battery in the rear, the Car PC can stay in hybrid sleep mode, so it will come on quick. The last and final always on item will be the tablet. I want it to always be charged and ready to go.
I wanted you guys to know that I do have some stuff for Car PC I dont need. XM Direct, Visteon HD Radio, Mitch's UAS and other odds and ends that I do not require. This includes the TMPS and all 5 sensors. Never been used so have no idea if the sensors are still good. The TPMS is still found by Centrafuse. I was trying to hold on for maybe an Android app, but Lok says his BT version will use a whole new unit and not be backward compatible. So I decided to switch tactics and go with a unique system.
As you know I have a camera system, it monitors all sides of my car. Front, left, right, rear, and cabin. I have a dedicated rear view screen that shows me the left, right and rear all the time, while the system records all cameras. The screen I use has the ability to merge those 3 cameras onto one screen, placing the images in their respective places on the screen. There are 4 inputs, but yet it can only display 3 at a time. Turns out 4th is for rear backing up. Basically you connect a wire to the reverse wire and when its triggered, it switches the screen to input 4. So I was browsing and all of a sudden I ran into a TPMS that links to your in car DVD screen. It also comes with a wire that when it has a warning, it releases a warning, but also triggers the screen to switch to it so you can see. So I decided to marry the two. The camera system will now be the all around safety system. Not only monitoring my car and recording, but also monitoring my tires pressure and temperature. My B-Day (Jan 4th) gift to me!
