ok so we now have another section of my project completed see details below, there are not alot of pictures of the production stage but mainly the finished article.
so anyway 1st things 1st i had to but another screen, after having a liliput screen in my nav housing which seemed to perform wonderfully i hunted for the smae model again.
i then attacked this to make it fit inside the standard IS200 Fascia adaptor alot of you are familiar with The walk through [url="http://www.outlawjapclub.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?t=3013"]HERE[/url]
the same principal applies except i cut the existing screen housing apart to make it fit inside the hole
i then used Hurricane & plastic filler to smooth it all followed by primer and paint
So yeah umm here is the finished article in the car
shortly after this i took the pc back out the car to do some work mainly software based but as its been slow due to weather lately
Main thing was to: -
install a Relay board Driver
Adjust PSU boot times etc (carnetix PSU2410) adjusted by pc software
Customize background of software
attempt to fix satnav problem...
well out of all the above the Sat nav is still outstanding, don't think that's to bad considering lol
Lets start with the background this is done via a Hack in centrafuse once installed you can place pictures into the images directory and either have them rotate through each time it boost or lock it to a image.
i chose a pic of my car which has been customized
So here is before
so with this installed i then moved onto the Realy board, the whole reason for this is im running out of places to install switches lol , this particular board runs on USB with a 12v input and can switch 12v via relays so i have assigned 4 circuits to start with
Circuit 1 - Inter cooler
Circuit 2 - Strobe Lights
Circuit 3 - Front Camera
Circuit 4 - Audio Amps.
the software has been developed to work as a hack so once installed will automaticly install the relevant task area and buttons on the Centrafuse front End
Labelled up circuits ok only 2 labelled but you get the idea
here is the board in test status on my Living room floor
as you can see LED2 is illuminated this means that the Relay is now in the Normally open position closing the circuit thus giving me a 12v output on that switch
when you press a button on the touch screen the button illuminates green to indicate its operation
the board can be set with 2 system
syetem one to allow toggle press (so it flashes the output upon being pressed non latching)
System two Latched output (a single press on the circuit will latch the output and stays latched until pressed again)
OK well this is following on from the group buy [url="http://www.outlawjapclub.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?t=6654"]here[/url]
As discussed a lot of you would like to see this system in the flesh and know how easy it is to install, so i went ahead and got 2 kits, to be experimented on 2 different types of set ups
So here is the good news
they are here in my flat ready to rock and roll
If i get a chance this weekend i will get the push start part of the system installed so you can all see that running the proximity bit needs a bit of research as i have an after market alarm.
If i can however Fit this into mine then all those with After market alarms on any vehicle will be able to do the same.
