Hi everyone!

Finally after 6 months my Caliber came last week.
Now I'm installing a car pc with 7' inch touchscreen monitor.
When it finished I will post step by step pics.

Take a sample now..:)

Oh wow... That's awesome! I will be *very* interested in the details of this one! Please do include at least some of the steps involved to get the PC components installed...

That looks really good! Please provide the parts and component list with install details. I couldn't tell from your photos what OS is running that media player.

Yep. I didn't recognize the WinAmp skin. More info please.

I have my Pocket PC cellphone (audiovox 6700 running Windows Mobile 5 ) with touch screen plugged into the head unit aux jack. It plays my mp3 collection great via media player but I sure like the look of that 7" screen.

Ditto. Love this phone. People are amazed when I show Doom running and playing smoothly full screen. Great device. I keep a 1600 page Windows Server 2003 pdf manual on it as well:) If you aren't already aware, www.seidio.com has an excellent selection of accessories for it. I have the rubberized black case and audio jack adapter. I also hang out at www.pdaphonehome.com in the 6700 forum as well. Great source of info.

Could you post some pictures of the pc under the seat, I'm still trying to figure out where best to put mine.

What casing have you used?
