as I said, all depends what you want it for ... there are so many possibilities that it really is not possible to put together a "howto"

see here:

read the forums, MP3Car.com

this is a massive question as it can be done many ways, :) :)
That's a great forum (although I've only stalked on there) ... also digital-car.co.uk forums and forum.centrafuse.com are also pretty good :thumbs:

GTV install

I made a plate to mount a touchscreen and all the switches in the dash:

I bought a car-PC case

installed an EPIA mainboard

which I mounted on the rear bulk-head

The 12v-12v DC power supply in the case auto-switched with ignition, and auto-hibernates. It also remote switched the pair of stereo amps I mounted in the boot to run sound.

I used Centrafuse for the interface, touch and voice control, plus Directions navigation software. I got a USB DAB radio. USB camera for rear-view. I played with various OBD-II packages.

In the end I uninstalled it and went back to a conventional car stereo as I was fed up of the maintenance issues or the software and the physical install. A fire in the PSU was the final straw.
