    CarPC powers back :-)

    that's the reason. That's why a relay or phidget combination would probably be the right solution.

    To tell you the truth I have no idea how these things work
    Any tips about what to buy ? which device is generic enough to be used for other stuff like cutting audio when reverse gear is engaged !

    I have a question. Does the PC shut down automatically if you cut power to the trigger pin?

    To start you need the main unit 1018 or 1019 with 6 usb ports but they are only 1.1 usb not 2.0 The 1018 is 8 analog/8 digital in and 8 out. It would be pretty easy having your reverse wire going to input and having it send signal to relay on output. Using their relay board. Most have clear acrylic enclosures. Here is the 1018 http://www.phidgets.com/products.php...duct_id=1018_2 and here is the dual relay board http://www.phidgets.com/products.php...duct_id=3051_1 or if you don't have that much draw this would be fine http://www.phidgets.com/products.php...duct_id=3053_0 Or just use your own 5v relay. Good solid product. SNO
