    Slapped it together tonight and took it for a test ride. I still have to do some work to the bezel. The inner portion where the screen attaches is not really square so it tweaks the screen slightly when screwed into place. this causes the touchscreen not to work properly. I did get ig3 umpc loaded up and working finally. it worked well during my test drive. also, i found an area under the dash where the radio can be relocated to without having to extend the wires! i was fretting all the cutting and splicing i was in for to relocate it somewhere else... i still have to extend the power wires to the screen, and find a way to secure it so that everything will fit and be secure. Ill also have trim some small portions of the dash that are covered by the bezel so the the ribbon cable for the touchscreen doesnt get pinched once installed. not a big deal really, about a days worth of work but with the holidays coming really fast it will have to wait until jan.

    I got an I/O magic usb dvd/cd burner for christmas. its this model, just looks a little different, but same size.
    it works well, but is powered via a wall plug, so im figuring out how i want to power it. it runs off 5v and draws approx 1.7 amps. ill show pics and whatnot of it when i decide how to properly power it. im thinking off the systems 5 volt rail, but im not that familiar with the power supply of pcs so im researching it for now.

    On the PS you have the yellow 12v , red 5v and 2 black grounds. You should be able to cut the brick off the end of the power cable and determine which wire is the pos and which is the negative.

    Post up a pic of the brick specs and the power cable plug just to make sure. It should be pretty simple.

    I figured i would cut the wires mid way, then add some blade connectors. that way, if i ever want to take it out and use it on another pc, i wont have to rip my dash etc apart to do it. Ill post some pics up this weekend when i get my digital camera back.

    You could get some male/female molex connectors.

    Had another successful jaunt with the ig3 and ayaysir gps reciever. once again to atlanta, but then followed by a run to Savannah and then all the way back here to auburn. It did have a hickup where it lost audio but restarting the program fixed it.

    yea, it does look cut off at the top. Maybe the screen size needs to be manually adjusted or the resolution is off a little. I'm thinking it should be 800x480.
