    MKV Jetta GLI

    I started this project about a week ago, and am still waiting for most of the parts to arrive. So far I have the case just about finished and most of the software in hand but not installed since I'm waiting on my extra power supply to run the setup in my home. The case is gonna take place of a storage pocket in the trunk. The actual computer hardware is pretty basic, and I will upgrade as time, money, and necessity allow.

    System:

    Soyo mainboard, Pentium3/866mhz
    256MB SDram
    M2-ATX
    40GB hard drive
    5.1 channel sound card
    USB 2.0 5-port PCI card
    USB 2.0 4-port powered hub
    Lite-on USB 2.0 DVD/CD-R/W slot load external laptop drive
    USB GPS reciever
    bluetooth dongle
    802.11g Wifi card
    Ex-Audio 7" touchscreen
    mini illuminated keyboard
    ATI Radeon 32MB graphics card (probably not gonna use it, may just use the on-board video if it works out)
    Custom case

    Software:

    Windows XP
    Road runner
    Iguidance
    Netstumbler
    (need some more suggestions on other software)

    The plan is to use the carputer to handle all of the audio with the soundcard tied into my 4-channel amp, so no headunit

    Audio (already installed):
    Pioneer 35wrms x4 amp
    JL1000/1
    JL 12" W7

    I still need to get a decent set of 3-way components for the front and maybe a powered center channel

    Pictures of the case: (will upload soon)

    Ex-audio screen is pretty good. I'm not sure what's up with the Ebay Seller, I bought some stuff off them a year ago and they were great. This time they tried to hold the monitor back until I paid them more money. I threatened to contact Ebay and they finally sent the screen.

    I have the Carputer all wired up, but I ran into some problems which is why I haven't updated this yet. First, I think my Mobo died, and a new one is on the way. Then I cracked the touchpanel in my monitor. I'm still waiting to here from DigitalWW to get a replacement touchpanel for it.

    looks good

    I've also got an MKV Jetta and am contemplating a carputer setup of my own. Mostly Mac Mini in the glove box and more importantly putting a 7" touchscreen where the diffuser is (as the tray which sits in there in europe is like $40, i figured it'd be nice to have the screen simply fold down into the dash when not in use, much lower key then a head unit). anywho i'll be keeping an eye on your progress!

    That'd be pretty tough to pull off, you'd need to do alotta cutting. You could do a motorized headunit type, but even then, I think it puts the screen too high to be practical, espescially if you go touchscreen. would be nice to see though.

    I've got this project finished......... for the most part. I'm posting a new thread in the "show off your project" section. So check it out there. http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/show...227#post858227
