Odroid Carputer System

Unread post by maxderoswell » Sun Jul 28, 2019 4:24 am

Hi everybody,

I'll start my first project but before I would thank idorel77, with these videos on youtube, he had convince me to begin.

I start from zero so be cool with me.

I need to assembly a odroid c2 with:
-bluetooth module
-gps antenna

The project must show the Renault or Matra logo on boot when I open the screen box.

If the box is close, odroid must stay off.

I wish instal a tomtom version with the possibility to use the POI, tomtom 1.4 I think.

I need to display the front and the rear camera on the screen.

I will play music on the device by usb but use autoradio speak for the sound output by wiring or bt synchro ?

I need a screen 7'' and a digitizer and mount it into a audi a1 Mmi réf 8X0857273 B.

I will cut and re-size the audi frame, it's not the priority.

For the screen like as idorel77, I had buy this:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/HDMI-VGA-2AV-R ... SwvjdZThMs

But not again the touch screen for over.

I had the gps and the bt module.

I'm lost for continue the configuration.

Could you help me ?

Thank you so much community.

Do you use Android for your project? or Ubunut/Linux?

Do you have this GPS receiver?

I have no idea what you want exactly.
Do you have a problem with the GPS module on C2 Android OS?
Can you give us more detail description of the issue?

BTW, it seems to be worth to read the following articles to learn how other users made it.

If i'm not wrong this is just antenna not the gps module. What do you want to do with that?

I don't have issue with gps, I don't know how to do work tomtom on the odroid.

I will need to order this digitizer.

If I can't find for tomtom I will stop the project.

Hello,

I start to search the best way for the future to power the C2 into the car.

I wish fit the screen and his digitizer into the audi a1 screen body. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jat5ZH3KeyQ

I think I will power the C2 only when I ask to the screen to opening with a magnet switch.

Hello,

for play music on the C2, it's best to use the TF slot of the C2 or a usb drive ?

Thank you very much

The sd slot will have lower power consumption than usb. Either than that, they're the same.

No, but it doesn't have to use 5V to power usb circuitry, only 1.8V for SD. I expect power usage to be lower due to less circuitry involved.

I have a boot screen for kodi before seeing the panel with buttons.

I progress, I progress.

For the lcd step, anyone had used a similar product of this one: https://fr.aliexpress.com/item/40000803 ... bb29a4df64

Or other in 7" with a digitizer compatible with the C2 and Android.

Thank you

Mathieu

I've not used Android, but for my racecar dashboard I've got these: https://www.ebay.com/itm/HDMI-LCD-Drive ... OSwrzpZeqd~

The resistive touchscreen is what I need as we're required to be in full race gear with fire resistant gloves.
It's not in the car yet, that's one of the projects for the winter.
