    New to PC in the car

    hey guys I wanna put a PC in my car

    I have a Jensen 7" touch screen with Bluetooth
    and it works great (for what it is)
    but I want more, but doesn't everyone...lol

    well here is what I wanna do I want the touchscreen I currently have to interface with a computer that I may put in the car
    like with Windows 7 or something

    I kinda look at it like this, I have a touchscreen, I can build a computer, or use an existing one I have

    and it has a built in amp,tuner,bluetooth,SD slot and USB front and rear

    what do you think any ideas?

    you cannot easily use that touch screen. you would need to disassemble the unit, grab the typically-tiny wires coming off the touch screen, determine which wires are which, and then hope that you can find a controller that understands what the touch screen is doing and transmit that in a form that the computer can understand...i would guess that this part would be close to a 3mo. project.

    it depends on that specs on the computers you have-- you might be able to use one.

    Is it possible to hack your Jensen unit to use the touchscreen on the PC? Anything is possible.
    Is it practical? My magic 8-ball says "No."
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?
