@sohail : GTA runs without any problem, Runs smooth. I'm planning to add a graphic card next

@nisarg : As of now im using my HU, Once i get enough funds ill install a mono block amplifier for my sub and use the current 4channel to power my front and rear speakers. I regret getting a sony HU

@Shreyasma : that pioneer remote in the pic belongs to a friend of mine, we actually gave his swift for a service and so his belongings were left in my car

Great job and very nice pdf. Kudos to your effort.

Can we see where the CPU sits? And its size etc too?

And where is the Atom CPU in the pic?

Edit; coz of simplicity and details, thought will add stars to this thread.

Not at all, I mounted in such a way that when you sit in the drivers seat and look at the monitor, It looks like the windshield's bottom part touches the monitor's top. Hope you got my point.
I dont understand how to explain it.

That's a great install KoW. Couple of questions :-

1. After installing what do you think of it's utility?

2. Do you drive that car OR park it and browse internet/play video games?
