The wiring problem is still there and some of the wires are now under the carpet. But not a bad deal.

Isn't the dash monitor mounted too high ? Will it not block your front view ?

Yes, but not really a problem for me as I am 6.2 and used to drive with 7 inch TFT before.

But I dont recommend 10.4" as it looks too big for a car. 9" will be a best choice.

In Chennai, anybody knows a good place to do some fibreglass mounting of this moniutor on dash (like someone did on his innova in teambhp).

Technokrat, Nelson Manickam Road. Or Charles, Anna Nagar. Don't know about their rates, but these are the best in Chennai.

Looks fine and well planned, except for the 10.4" monitor on stilts. In my opinion, the 10.4" monitor should be integrated into the center console to look OEM.

If you could relocate the AC controls further down, I guess it would give room for the 10.4" monitor to be integrated into the center console just below the air-con vents. Or is the 10.4 really big for even Safari?

Your center console seems to be modified. isn't it? I'm not really sure how the TCIC original console looked like.

Exactly. Planning is the secret of a successful PC installation.

See the USB Hub designed for Safari? http://tatasafariclub.com/files/user...6_P1000271.jpg

No, nothing altered. Its a Carbon fibered TCIC OEM console. I even didn't touch the seats to mount headrests monitors as my plan is to buy another safari once TATA finishes their R&D with DICOR customers(mostly buy next DICOR version and I have to transfer all my fittings to the new one).

I know them and they did my ICE install. As per my opinion they are the worst installer I have ever seen in my life (???).

Could you elaborate on your experience please ? Because I recently went there with my friends NHC Vtec & I thought the job was professional. Now wires jutting out or twisted around the carpet anywhere.

Perfectly. I am planning to do that.

Anybody know where I can buy Right Angle VGA Adapter and Right Angle USB extension cables in india?

I too thought their job was professional until I visited my current installer. But their job never worth for the money I have paid for. I will explain the story on our next meet and show you how a professional job should be and what they did.

He is just a guy who has repaired my JBL 75.4 (And yes, its gone because of the poor install from technocraft). He has a small shop near ambiga empire and he is the one repairing ECM units for Maruthi and Bosch service stations.
