    I assume you mean GPS, not powermate.

    The GPS in inside the wood enclosure I built. I am still working on it (I need to cut out the window and put the carpet over it). I get about 6 sats, so I'm not worried about signal strength.

    My bad. I have seen the griffin powermate a 100 times on this site and I have assumed it was a GPS device(thats just kinda what it sounded like to me). I just googled it to find out it is a voume control knob among other things. Do you think it would fit in the sliding tray above the drink holder? I was looking for a nice looking knob to put in there.

    Now that school is out, I have found some time to work on the carpc project. I decided to get rid of mapmonkey, and start using iGuidance instead. This was prompted by mapmonkey telling me to go the wrong direction on a one way street (which I didn't do btw) . I know this is destinators fault, but I never trusted it since then. I also decided to try out the alpha of FU, and I simply love it. My current to-do list includes:

    Hardware:

    install power supply
    finish carpeting box/cut hole for lights
    install ground loop isolator to fix noise when computer is off
    install microphone
    install keyboard
    install more RAM
    install backup camera

    Software:

    setup cell phone integration

    Well, I never posted a picture of the finished screen fab in place, so here it is. I will take another of the power button assembly later.

    What front end is that? Centrafuse is about to start charging and I am not sure if I want to buy it or not. That one looks like it matches the interior pretty well.

    Looks like RR with the FU (Freedom Ultimate) skin. Freedom Ultimate (Worklog)

    I think the bezel could be improved but nice install!

    What is a PWP RSX? Is that like an import thing?
    I'm still trying to cross the hurdle of my broken lcd, but I just recieved a few parts (including a ATI remote wonder 2, and a Griffin Powermate) so I'm gonna work on adding those in the meantime. The computer aspect of my project is done.

    Here is my to-do list:
    • Fix LCD
    • Buy GPS (BU-353)
    • Buy Bluetooth Dongle
    • Buy new cell phone with bluetooth
    • Position backup camera
    • Buy auto startup/shutdown controller for laptop
    • Buy Female-Female VGA Adapter
    • Get WifiHopper to work on TinyXP
    • Fabricate an enclosure for the amp, laptop, and antennas
    • Fabricate in Griffin Powermate
    • Find a good place for USB hub
    PWP = premium white pearl (color of car)
    in clubrsx.com people refer to the colors in their abbreviated forms. for example, yours would be SSM or ASM if i'm not mistaken ssm for satin silver metallic. anyway, i'm about set to start building my own carputer and saw ur finished install. what's with the unfinished look of the bezel? are you still going to fine sand that thing down? it looks pretty bad...

    Hey guys,
    I've been away for a while and I want to finish the carpc project fairly soon. Yes I know the bezel looks like ****, but I am way to lazy right now to take the whole thing out, resand/re-fill/re-paint it. I still don't have a power supply, lol so that is my next thing to sort out. I have 2 batteries in the laptop, so I only have to take it out about every 10 days to charge it. Still, it's really annoying. I installed an external power button up front, so I don't need to worry about a shutdown/startup controller. I really just want to get the power supply situation sorted out first before I do anything else. The laptop takes 19.5V input. Any ideas on a really cheap solution that wont introduce audio interference? I would buy an opus/carnetix, but I really don't want to spend the money if I don't need a shutdown/startup controller.

    @RSXTypes-
    Yes, it's Freedom Ultimate with a modified color scheme.

    After I finish the power supply, I want to finish carpeting the rest of the computer/amp box (lol, I never carpeted the top). After that, I might redo the bezel when I feel like it.
