Yes, I think it is better to wait till my system is up and running. In case I run into any pitfalls, then you will have time to rectify the problem before hand.
Swapping to other cars is easy ... even in the LCD I bought, the vendor has attached a Toyota sized frame around it ... so if I want to shift it to another vehicle, then only required change would be to get hold of that vehicle specific frame only.
Accessing the USB ports ... of course, even in my MoCoSo model, the USBs would not be easily accessible. I have planned to use extension i.e. about 6 wires running the USBs together and then use something like a larger USB hub to attach devices.
You have Honda Civic and its dashboard seems difficult to use something other than a 2-DIN sized unit. Since you are planning your unit in later summer vacation, why not look at possibility of using IPAD or IPAD2.
I suggest you also take a look at this

You can integrate the IPAD with your stock unit.
We did a detailed survey of android machines available ... our expert in this case was Brother Walid Janjua ... you can consult him in this regard. MashaAllah he is a very talented computer engineer. He is very ambitious. He actually wanted to build a Laadli specific computer from scratch ... We just followed the easier way.
While Centrafuse is required to be original ... it needs a unique software key, the Roadrunner is perhaps free. You can do research on this. Again, for sake of easiness, we decided to spend some money and go for Centrafuse ... the standard best interface.
I suggest that you search YouTube for IPAD in car installation, Centrafuse, Roadrunner.
Another desirable thing in car is to have On-Board Diagnostics ... our new vehicles need OBD-II. You can either go for a BlueTooth unit, or a wired one. I have opted for the wired one. If you decide about BT, then you can even use the same BT OBD-II unit to display the vehicle diagnostics on your phone screen.

Rahman Bhai ki gaari chal paray to phir thori dair chalti rehti hai ... I originally belong to Lahore, and Lahore has an upper hand in variety of channay ... the top most is Ghulam Rasool in Nila Gumbad. Second one is perhaps Abbot Road/ Lakshmi Chowk. Third one is Chikkar Chollay around Masjid-e-Shuhada. Our Islamabad Melody Food Corner is of course the best in Islamabad.
There is some movement in Rehman Sb's thread lets hope he finish b4 leaving for another adventure, I think in Lahore Goga cholay are good enough those can be compared side by side with ours here in Islamabad
It is a very good question ... I think he does not sleep ... you can ask him when he comes online. Whenever I have called him, he was awake ...
