2005 Subaru Forester Car Computer (Music, GPS, DVD, etc.)
« on: June 26, 2007, 12:00:31 PM »
Hello, Iím a new member on this forum.  I donít have an RV :( , but I do own a Subaru Forester :).  This is my CarPC that I have installed in it.  Iím posting it here because I would think that people with RVs would be interested in such a setup since you guys travel around the country/states.  If any of you have any questions, ore are interested in a similar setup for your RV, please let me know by sending me an email or PM:).  Thanks.

I started everything by creating a diagram of how everything was going to be connected and setup.  In the end, the setup came out almost the same as the diagram.  Only a few changes were made.

After purchasing the 7Ē touch screen, I started molding it onto the dash piece of the Forester.  Iím really proud of the results :)

I also added a nice infrared backup camera.  This enables me to park the Forester with ease.  Itís also nice because I can even see at night being infrared, even though there is not much visible light.

After everything was configured and setup, here is how it turned out :)

Neat setup. What kind of GPS mapping did you use?

Thanks salvi. Just checking, because commercial ads or solicitations aren't permitted in forum messages. Your "No one is intereted?" follow-up message confused me.

I kinda figured out that was what you were asking.  No worries.
