You Will Be Remembered.........
Feedback from some Civic experienced member is welcomed, Is there any way we can install something for real time fuel consumption? I can bet the infrastructure must be there in ECU/OBD etc...
I guess its there in the facelifted version. Still not sure, let me dig up my files, got an official Honda Civic brouchure I don't know of which country but I think it had both EPS and Real-Time Fuel Average Calculator
So, as a layman, you'd have to change the meter unit (No problem maybe), you may be able to play with the ECU/OBD but what about the wiring, which I haighly doubt would be pre-existing in our models
Here is one product; ScanGaugeII - Trip Computers + Digital Gauges + Scan Tool which is compatible with OBD-II and E-OBD

Now, this is nice stuff. Keep em coming?
I am software engineer by profession; ideally I would like Rockmars like in-dash computer but not running proprietry operating system; something like Symbian, Android or Windows CE etc which can be programmed...Linux and Windows etc not suitable due to longer boot-time etc. It should have touch screen and couple of USB / Serial ports to which we can hook external devices like GPS and OBD-2-USB or OBD-2-Serial devices. If such device exists from some known and well reputed vendor; I can program and develop ScanGuage like software.
The benefit of having such "general-purpose" carputer will be that we can use single device as Audio/Video and such tech purposes and avoid cluttering the car interior.
Running normal PC/Mac in car is not recommended, as you will be requiring DC - AC conversion, PC/Mac being Hard Disk based system very prone to driving condition and frequent start/stopping of car may harm the system and/or operating system.
Ideal device should be similar to smart phones...and should also have similar OS as they are optimized for faster boot and low memory and runs from flash. Symbian, Android and Windows CE are more open and allow low level programming than iOS (iPhone/iPod etc)
Here is one Android powered car-computer!
Its not 2-DIN; so not Rockmars like good looking; but its technical features are top notch!
Parrot ASTEROID is equipped with:
Price and availability:
- 3.2" screen (not touch )

This by no means is gonna be cheap. Parrot products are expensive IMHO
^^ I am liking this Parrot / Asteroid thing unless I come across with such well built unit but with touch screen and larger screen size...
But isn't this 1000 times better than Atlas Honda 78k Navigation system? You can use this unit as Navigator as well...There is already one guy who is offering https://www.pakwheels.com/forums/car...oid-blackberry so you dont need GPRS or other internet connectivity!

By the way Honda's Albaster Silver is more shiny and appealing than the classic siver I had in 2010 GLi.
My wife literally became angry when I booked silver car (for the fourth time in a row). Kept silver Cultus (2004-2009), City (2009-2010), Corolla (2011 few days) and now Civic.
The good thing about silver is; it dont look bad even if you dont clean the ride for weeks which I tend to...as i dont like getting my car cleaned from "safai walas", chokidars or drivers...rather prefer to leave it as is..and get it washed properly in a month or so and after six month or so when you get the car polished...silver looks best for days!
