Default Re: Tofu delivery Special (CAR PC list updated)

Car PC part listing has been updated again. Found a nettop that has optical output and a resonably priced amp that has optical input. Current parts price is at around $1700. Still looking for places I can shave off cost.

Shaved about $400 off the build cost of the car computer and at the same time added in 2x30GB Solid State Disks. With a raid configuration, the boot time should be lowered ALOT. There's going to be a bit of unknowns with cabling and fabrication, but at this point it's only looking like about $1400 in main components. Still Cheaper than a DVD/NAV unit + 3 gauges.

Lightbulb Re: Tofu delivery Special (Still refining the Car PC)

One of the guys on mp3cars.com pointed out to me that I dont want to be using an ELM OBDII bcause of the protocol it uses. Subaru apparently uses Subaru Select Monitor Protocol or SSM. There is a new piece of freeware out called ECU Tracker, which can be found HERE. For all you smart phone addicts, it looks like a great fit. The program itself is sick! ANYTHING your tuner can look at, you should be able to see on your phone/car pc. I'm excited to be able to look at real time data and keep a close eye on how she's running.

Now I just need to find a working OBDII cable for this setup, and it was suggested to me that I use a Tactrix cable. Anyone know a good place to pick one up on the cheap? Only price I've seen online is currently $150.

Default Re: Tofu delivery Special (AccessTUNER Race?)

Another option is to use COBB AccessTUNER Race to monitor the car since I already paid for my AccessPORT, and I'm trying to cut costs. If components keep falling off like this, life is going to get easy

Default Re: Tofu delivery Special (Trying to figure out the Car PC)

Yeah, I'm looking into the open source front ends like Ride Runner so I can figure out away to get the AccessPORT to send raw data to the pc and show it as a digital gauge. Every corner I turn, it seems like there is a different problem. I've been learning about the whole Car PC thing for two months and its still changing every day. The good news is I will only be looking at about a grand more in parts, and my starting price on the build was looking around 1700, so I've dropped the price considerably.
