Finally, after searcing, reading, posting and most importantly, post whoring, i've finally finished testing the damn setup and am taking things apart for prefab.
Apologies for the low res pics, it's from my camera phone,my digicam is officially dead.
I decided to go with a laptop setup because i had an extra laptop laying around.
AMD K6II 3xx Mhz with 3XX mb of ram and a 20gb hdd.
It has 1, yes ONE usb 1.0 port and 2 pccard slots but no NIC no modem
1- 4 port usb 2.0 hub (not expecting speed but it'll help to power my USB stuff.)
2- Dlink Bluetooth adapter
1- ipod dock (can't find it just yet but it's in here somewhere)
1- pocketpc cable
1-ps2 touchpad (ebayed and 1 week away)
1-dc-dc variable input/output power converter
Since my accord is about 14 years old, the dash is a bit brittle. Also, theres not much room to in the dash to do anything with my current hardware, i decided to mount the thing in front of my radio, on a hinged base on the centerconsole.
In the picture, you'll see a square brownish thing, that's the acrylic board i plan to screw the screen to. It'll be a frame which will connect to the hinges & dash. I'm hoping to get an Imac look. The notebook will be sitting in my glove compartment or under my seat, depending on where i can shove it. The glove compartment is next to the a/c unit and has lots of cold air moving around it. Underseat there are foot vents pumping out a/c air as well but i'll have to find a way to keep it clean. More pics and blah blah later. Time to extend the screen cables.
I'll go down to take some car and dash pics after i finish my pizza. As for computer... thats all for now. Gonna do the wires later tonight, the solder fumes helps me sleep . Nothing has been taken apart or progressedyet and is as you see in the one picture i posted. I should have more posted tomorrow when i've finished the wires and started to actually make some diagrams.
wait for your Pics .
