Thanks guys for the support...I will be uploading some more pics..The front end integration is not complete, particularly the GPS part.The one in pic has been routed from my N82 as the touchscreen display has got 1 unused Video port.

No boom boom for me right now.(read "paisa Khatam").. have all pioneer setup.Will be seriously thinking about upgrade...

The entire setup has drained my bank balance by around 34000 inr and had given me sleepless nights and lot of tension(thankyou It shoppe).

Congrats, dilipkumar! Nice looking setup there!

Don't worry about the hassle. Once it is done, I'm sure you'll be happy you took the effort. CarPCs are still pretty rare and you're lucky you were able to get a good installer here right in Kochi, ready to do the job, and do it well.

DO update us with more pics and details once the project is complete. All the best with finishing the project well and with minimum future hassle.

The frontend used is DigitalDash.(www.digitaldash.com). As I was new to the entire thing I thought it would me easy to learn if I use a simple one. Now I am in the process of integrating it in RoadRunner. Will post pics after completion...

or google it for more info.

PS: Please do you mind sharing us with the cost involved and configuration of the PC.
