    Hi azeet_kumar,
    Thanks for your interest in my project.
    The P.S.U (M3-ATX) has 6-24V wide input range, also there is crank protection.
    Check this link for more information about the P.S.U

    I have the system almost ready, but need some more testing before installing it in the car.

    thanks,
    Rajeev
  2. rajeev, checked centrafuse evaluation version. for bluetooth bluesolil driver is required and evaluation version only allows 2 MB of data. i could not check whether centrafuse downloads phone contacts sucessfully or not. also it couldnot dial out
    other thing to check out is reverse camera.
    share your views. waiting eagerly.

    I bought the paid version of BlueSoleil, so pairing is working with my mobile. Reverse camera works totally independent mode with the RCA input and auto switching, but you can use a normal usb pc cam as reverse camera with centrafuse.

    Yes, but I prefer it to make it myself.
    But contacted Sheldon (iRide) for a monitor, the quoted price was not fitting in my budget.
    Also I don't like the PC case that they have used.

    Guys,
    A small update. Bought a 7" VGA touch screen monitor from AMSIMPEX, Mumbai. Now everything is ready to go into the car.
    Unfortunately it cannot be installed before the meet. But I can bring it as it is...
