    The screen and the glovebox

    As you can see I can't part from my radio for the moment. The stupid thing is that everything is run through the cassette deck so I need it wired. However I don't need it in sight because it is never on.

    I've been looking for an easy way to get some better sound. As you will see from the pc pics I have a transmitter for the moment. But it sucks so I want an amp but still need my radio. I signed up for beta testing of changing the CD changer into a USB port AND an audio in! If that works I'm home free, but if somebody has another option I am very interested!

    The PC

    Fast reply btw!

    GPS is underneeth the grill, it's hard to see as it should be!

    You can see the transmitter and the Soundblaster in one of the pictures. So I still need to do that.
    I'm planning to attach the computer to the roof of the trunk. Lots of space there and nice precut holes to do something.
    I also need to buy and wire a second PSU for my screen. I don't have the CD/DVD drive connected for the moment so that I can run my screen, but I want to run it all so.

    Oh btw, current system:
    - EPIA MII10000, CD/DVD combo, 512MB, 80gig HDD, 270 HOLUX CF GPS with antenna
    - standard case, but I like it because it hides everything in the front nicely
    - USB wireless dongle

    I'm also running a nextbase DVD player which is hooked up in the back. I can put a DVD in there and show it on my screen(AV input 1) or I can show my screen on the nextbase. Sound is run through the line in(still some glitches with that though).

    I also ran a few extra wires to the front. I already attached an AV cable to the back. So the only thing i need is a camera so that I have a back up camera.

    I'm pretty happy with everything so far, allthough I expected a little more quality from the screen itself, but hey you can't have it all I guess.

    Suggestions are appreciated.

    Hows the GPS signal where it is? Also, have you thought of finding a way to mount that comp to the roof of the trunk (not the actual trunk tho)? Or running the wires under the carpet? Good work on the install tho, I like it.

    Thanks it took me long enough to get there.

    Well I was think to mount a wooden board to the roof with a drawer like construction(should be sturdy though). The board would give me room for an amp and all the other things I want.

    The GPS, I still need to get the right software so I haven't had any signal yet. Aren't there little programs to see if you have some reception?
