Car-PC GNS FM9 TMC receiver (USB) GNS FM9 TMC receiver (USB)
 | 07.03.2011
Installation is very easy, emulates a COM-port, which you then set-up in your navigation software. (Too bad Centrafuse Destinator doesn't work with the TMC in Belgium, and MapFactor free doesn't support TMC location tables).

Nice little GPS receiver, based on Sirf 3, one of the better receivers. Emulates a COM-port with the supplied drivers. No problems in Windows 7 whatsoever. Works perfectly together with Centrafuse 3.5 Destinator and MapFactor

I'm having some small problems with this receiver.
On my test bench it worked perfectly with Centrafuse 3.1 (supplied plug-in). But now that CF 3.5 has come out I have to use Radiator until a new plug-in is released. Radiator doesn't support RDS.
I'm also having problems getting reception in my car, with the supplied antenna I have some stations, but they drop frequently (every couple seconds). With the built-in car antenna, I'm receiving only one station (and it also drops out). On my test bench I could get all stations, so I think this is a problem related to my car.

Car-PC Serial Cable Harness for M3-ATX(-HV) Serial Cable Harness for M3-ATX(-HV)
 | 07.03.2011
I did have some problems with this cable. Had to rewire the motherboard connector to fit Zotac motherboard. (RXD, TXD and Ground wires had different pins). Altough I'm not sure whether this is a problem from my motherboard or from the cable.
I also had to remove Pin 10 from my motherboard (which is also very weird that it was present)

It is what it says, small ATX DC/DC power supply. Somewhat difficult to fit inside a MiniBox with a Zotac motherboard (have to bend it a little to get it in the connector, but once it is in everything is OK).
The optional serial cable comes in very handy to set some parameters to your liking.

On the case itself there are already mounts, but to use them you have to measure the placement of the screws in the wall, and then "hang" the case on these.
With these brackets it's much easier to fit (especially in a car)

Very small case (smaller then I thought). Somewhat challenging to fit Motherboard, M3-ATX, and Hard Drive in, but once it's in you've got a very small footprint device.

Car-PC Car-aerial splitter (FAKRA connector) for GPS-TMC-<b>Sirf3</b>-Receiver Car-aerial splitter (FAKRA connector) for GPS-TMC-Sirf3-Receiver
 | 07.03.2011
This comes in very handy if you want to use both an FM receiver and a TMC receiver with your built-in car antenna.
Only problem with me (but I think this is related to my car antenna) is that I can't seem to receive any stations.

I'm using this with Centrafuse. Volume control, prev or next song, mute. Long press opens task manager, in which a different profile loads so I can kill a program (all with the powermate)

Feels cheap, but does what it's supposed to do.
I didn't install drivers, and as far as I can tell only the copy/paste shortcut buttons and the media buttons don't work. Volume does.
