hardy1531 why not install a monitor in the dash so the BIG laptop won't be in the way and you can use it while driving.

I use this in my truck(van) for work for toughbook laptop. The mount is pretty universal, I think it could bolt to the floor, the stand can be cut down for hight.

mrbigjeep sounds cool

Geeps It's Approx. 24" X 9 5/8 to 9 3/4" wide. I say approx. because I'm working on different covers for it right now and it's going to depend on which one I settle on.

This model bolts to the spreaders of a front sportscage. I will be working on a longer version ( for those without a sports cage ) as soon as this one is finished.

mrbigjeep dude, that is sweet...looks like its designed pretty well
07-13-2006 01:14 PM
bluvikng That is awesome. You really went all out on this. Will this fit between the bars of a Posion Spyder roll cage on a YJ? I see that you have some type of aftermarket roll cage. If you can post the dimensions, I can check myself, and does this hook on to the footman loop?

Geeps This what I'm working on at the moment:

hardy1531 I have CB, Mobile base unit for Fire Department(and many other channels) , XM radio, 6-disc changer mp3 player...... yeah I like electronics.

JeepCrawler98 I run a garmin GPSmap 60CS; I've loaded it with street maps for Arizona, as well as topographic outdoor maps. It's portable, mobile, does turn by turn directions perfectly, magnetic compass and barometer (great for camping), and has the maps an outdoorsman wants (not just street maps like most 'car' GPS' are limited to) so I absolutely love it. The new GPSmap 60CSx has the potential to load the entire US in maps on there due to the new expandable memory, in addition to having a more sensitive receiver

I need a GPS my wife took my RB1

I let my wife borrow my RB1 gps 2 years ago and she is never going to give it back.

So this will be my next one

Geeps What type of GPS unit does everyone have or planning on?

thanks


Jim
Yes it would.
I am planning on the following

CB - will have to learn how to use. :o
MP3 & Sirrius
GPS

JeepCrawler98 GPS, CB (euw), and a Ham (both permanent mobile and a handheld transceiver) - I'll be adding an amp, some speakers, and an MP3 player soon as I have no tunes right now (I'm skipping the flimsy head units alltogether)

Only if you can make it convenient to see for both the passenger and driver, and can easily take out the GPS system to use as a handheld, or to dock on the computer...

jeeperman I use a CB for trails and traffic occasionally, I use my MP3 player for long trips, or a day on the trail, and I have a GPS unit that is mounted on the dash...
