    I am writing this post to describe my Linea Carputer Install as it progress. The aim is to build SST (Sasta Sundar Tikao) Carputer for my Linea and in the process minimize cabling and meddling with car electronics. As on date I have collected most of the hardware required for the install minus the monitor.
    The project is quite ambitious (to my standards) and I plan to increase my modding of the rig as the install and time progresses.

    • Motherboard CPU: Intel D410 Atom Box Pack - Rs 3000
    • 1 GB DDR II 800 MHz RAM - Rs 1000
    • 250 GB Seagate SATA Momentus Laptop HDD - Rs 2000
    • Bluetooth Dongle - Rs 100
    • M3 ATX 125W HV Power Supply - $57 + $25(shipping)
    • M350 Mini ITX Cabinet - $37 + $25(shipping)
    • Holux Bluetooth M100C GPS tracker/logger - Rs 2400
    • 7" USB powered touchscreen monitor - Not bought (probably in next month salary budget Rs 9000 approx)

    • Centrafuse 3.0 with Satguide maps
    • Linux ICE frontend

    Last Known Good State
    CPU is working. Infact I am writing this post from the same Carputer CPU

    Nice work. BTW, where do you plan to keep the CPU in car?

    In all probability below drivers seat.
    The case which I have selected, mounts comfortably below drivers seat

    That's wonderful Ishan,
    I have a doubt regarding the OBD tool, I heard that FIAT interface is different from others (3 pin and normal ones are with 16 pins, though never checked it). So another adapter cable may be required.
    Correct me if I am wrong.

    here is the OBD port location in Fiat Linea and possibly in Punto. Rajeev Fiat very much has a standard OBD connector
