As in other topics already said I was a bit jealous of all the modern cars and their fancy touchscreens and
navigation systems. So after some Google research found the solution in this forum.

Did a lot of reading in all the topics and finally started working on my PI project. Haven’t used my PI for
over a year so I got a nice destination for it.

All didn’t go smoothly because I’m more a Windows guy. Nothing the less I got it al working thanks to the
members in this forum, so credits to al that helped and are still helping to make it a success.
When the PI got operational, including the touchscreen and GPS, it was time to build it into my car, a 1998
VW Golk MK3,5 Cabrio.

Steps I have taken:
Created a paper template and transferred it on MDF. Because it was difficult to get a nice fit bought some
cheap putty and used it to make it fit nice on the curved sides.
Then started with the grinder and finished it of by sanding it to get a good surface to spray-paint it. Results
are in the animated .gif file. (hope this works :) )

Next step was to get everything built a box so I can remove it easily. It is a cabrio, and I do not always
close the roof when I park so easy removal therefore was one off the requirements. As showed in the
pictures I succeeded and now have to take the final steps to wire it al up in my car.

Things todo:
Install the reversecam
