    HAHAHA.....thanks seanshine!!! I'm glad to hear that you like your Keypower. Looking at your sig it looks like your hardware specs are very similar to mine, at least what I'm planning. does the uSDC work well with the keypower?

    The tweeter mounts I actually cut out of an old PackardBell PC case...but I'll take the award anyway ....."I would like to thank my Dremel, this could not have happened without him....and Craftsman.....and most important Mp3Car.com, you guys are awesome!! I love you mom! Thank you and good night"

    haha.....anyway, now that I'm back on earth , thanks for the compliments! Got any pics of your setup? I don't think I've seen any pics of an install with the keypower.....

    CHEERS

    Excellent! I like how recessed the screen is, that's gotta help out a ton with the glare.. especially on a Lilliput..

    Thanks! That is exactly what I was going for. After all the reading about glare problems on the Lilliput and even on a friend's factory acura tl nav system, I tried to mount it as far back as was possible, and it works OK, I still get a bit of glare but it is workable

    What shifter/handle is that you've got. I like how it comes back towards the driver.. Wonder if the handle portion would fit on a Pro 5.0..

    It is actually mounted on a Pro 5.0, although you will need the rubber mounts from the stocker shifter, the shifter is from Roush Performace, the kit comes with the handle, knob, and leather boot, it goes for about $200 USD, a little bit cheaper from eBay....it is definately worth it, the reach and position is way more confortable than the stocker and it is a little bit longer and gives you a lot more leverage, I love it.

    Hi all, I just got this past weekend a new amplifier for the carputer . I got a Kicker KX350.4 4-ch amplifier. It is amazing the difference in sound quality from the Kenwood . At some point I'll install a sub and I can use the Kenwood amp for that, but I am really impressed with the Kicker amp, A+ !!

    Also I've been trying out different frontends and the latest version of RoadRunner is great! Thanks guino !! I'll be starting my own RR skin soon , and it will probably be mustang oriented so I don't know how many people will be interested in it but I'll post in the skin section for RR when I start!

    The next couple of things to do to the carputer are the voice control (thinking about SpeakEasy), slim DVD drive, and bluetooth. I'll keep posting progress here, stay tuned!
