    Lightbulb 05 Honda Element w/ 10.4" In~dash Carputer Project

    Hello,

    I've been follow this board for some time and just decided I can't hold back any longer.

    Where I'm at:

    Parts 80% (Still need PS, wires, etc.)
    Software 50% (Learning the ropes, ie. function and skins)
    car integration 0% (Haven't touch my ride yet, getting it ready)

    __________________________________________________ _______
    Plan:
    1) Get a working systems with the parts i have now (front softwares, general software)
    2) Fabricate the bezel and deal with the fiting of the 10" screen
    3) Order and Get the M2-ATX power to work (on/off, shut down timing)
    4) Work audio set up in the car with or without the factory headunit
    __________________________________________________ _________

    Computer:
    AMD Sempron 3100+
    ECS NFORCE3
    AV-710 7.1

    GPS:

    Monitor:
    Lilliput FA1042-NP/C/T (just received)

    Software:

    Look for others with the same car willing work on this

    Going to add pics

    Not sure where to go but I'm thinking of its going to be the vents that are going to be relocated to the sides or the climate control knobs are going to be move down below the shift knob




    Some thoughts on what I'm thinking on the location of the screen



    But then I wasn't sure where i can relocate the control knob so what about below the shift
    I'm not sure if can do this or not but I'll give it a try.


    For the computer I'm either going to have it in the
    1) glove box
    2) under the glove box ( passenger side leg room)
    3) under the driver seat.
    4) diy center console

    The Air control is on a cable, you can relocate it to the upper console, or someone actually moved it to the center console.

    I think I would go with a fold down from the roof in the element, somewhat where that mesh holder is, but just my opinion.
