PC car questions... please help.
Iím in the process of conceiving a PC for my VW Passat 2000 GLS. I see that building one is not longer an issue nowadays with the explosion of new and miniaturized mobo/cpu running cooler without trading off power.
I have only two issues which I need some help with:
1. Iím an avid listener of AM radio shows. So far I donít know of any PC radio interface which would allow AM radio reception. I thought of getting satellite radio. Has anyone install such a thing with a car PC? Also, is there a PC radio interface which allows AM radio reception? I found something but it was an ISA card and this is no longer supported by newer moboís. Something in a 32-bit (PCI) would really be helpful.
2. HeatÖ Even with the cooler run cpuís Iím still a little worried that on a 90+
degree summer day everything will fry. Where do you usually install this PC in your car? Trunk? Cabin? How do you solve the heat problem?
