Amazing effort bull boy and the end result is definitely very clean, no wires can be seen anywhere. Do post some more details, where is the CPU box located and whats the big knob next to the gear box?

Nice to see your carputer up and running. I am using Mireo MMI latest and garmin Mobile PC for navigation. I can't get the navigation to work with CF 4.0. Could you share how to make phone calls using CF4.0/ synchronizing PC and cell phone.

Thanks for the Maps suggestion I assume Mireo is only for Android and not for windows?

I have the BS stack installed and mic is via Andrea Suma USB.
Once you have this in PC and BT working fine and pairing (remember to set the permissions in BT properties) then go to CF and configure the phone in settings > bluetooth. Once the phone is detected here , you can receive and make calls via CF.
If I need to stress on anything specific please do mention.

Which BS stack are you using? Can you through more light on how to do setting in phone to receive calls via PC.

Mireo 8.0 for Windows has been released. That's what I sent you the links for.

A few more questions:

a) What is the wattage of your PSU?

b) Did you yourself fabricated the fiberglass panels?
