Over two months after i placed my order, i have finally received confirmation my Mausberry power circuit is on its way!

I've seen around a dozen emails querying it's whereabouts unanswered in 2020 alone, so I really thought I'd been had, but really looking forward to getting it and getting this in the car.

The 7" screen fits the sat nav cluster, the pcb just needs the corners cutting off to allow it to fit cleanly behind the screen.

The Pi and software work great.

I need to pick up a powered hub hub just to make sure there's adequate power for all devices and ensure I have enough ports for:

The touchscreen usb cable

The phone USB cable

The Bluetooth dongle

The 64gb memory card with music on

The USB microphone for handfree calls

The keyboard dongle for the little keyboard I've been using to enter details (not necessary for driving but handy for my son's input when passenger ha ha)
