Rob Wray from mp3Car talks with Will Meyer, member of the mp3Car Forum about his car computer installation.
Will runs Centrafuse along with this space navigator for control, integrated webcam, dashcommand gauges, game emulators and OBD 2 data.
Will has written some custom code to have an display panel on his console update with OBD 2 data and GPS data. He has also written some code that allows him to sms his car to retrieve information such as speed, gps location and OBD 2 data.
