OK I've taken the stand off of the GTC and mounted it on one of my i-Openers and it looks TOTALLY KOOL!
Hmm there are some other useful parts on the GTC...Lets see,
10.5" LCD with touchpad. (Maybe I can locate a seperate controller card for this touchpad to use on the i-Opener, I'll be searching thru some old posts soon!)
anyway it's nice to have a spare LCD these can break EASY!
32 Meg compact flash Oh and a socket! Hmmm, Does this little socket fit in the i-Opener? Time to warm up the BLASTER MASTER! 1000 watt heat gun. (Getting VERY good at this type of parts removal.) "Homebrew wave bulk Desoldering" .
LCD interface cable! THE EXTENDED LCD CABLE MOD is a reality soon! mount that MOBILE in car i-Opener Mobo and hardrive assy under the passenger seat and extend the lcd cable to the dashboard mounted GPS display! Mobo/Cpu/hardrive stays cooler during those hot summer days! I have 7 i-Openers, some Hitachi some Sharp LCD's.
Bios chip. Reflash it for spare i-Opener!
Slim inline power supply adapter Hmmm, 19v @2.6 amps! (A little more current for that AMD K6-2+ 450)
and some misc SMD parts for us that like to tinker!
*Note* I was going to resell this unit earlier only because of posted marginal/poor performance. Now I've decided it's a keeper for parts!
Ps I'm exchanging the HPNA mini pci card for the ethernet soon. Gateway customer service sez I have 30 days to do so...Anyway that will be up for grabs (trade or $} when I get it...
