I have been looking at your car PC project and I was wanting to ask for help.
I currently have a HP E pc that has an 80GB harddrive. I am running a very basic setup in my car
HP E PC with usb GPS and routemaster navigation programme
MediaCar front end and this controls the music and dvd i have on the system.
I have the sound exiting using the onboard sound card through a 3.5mm jack and going into my kenwood headunit in the car.
Time has come for me to upgrade the system as I would like to really maximise the PC experience in the car. I have downloaded roadrunner and also your skin as i think this looks absolutly superb!!! I will install this as my front end now instead of media car.
I would really like to be able to add at least one more screen to my system as i would like to be able to show the music player/video or navigation demo at the same time. As the car is a show car people don't appreciate the sheer amount of work that has gone into a PC media centre!
I have also recently found out about the whole idea of digital guages and think having these running through my pc would be a fantastic idea too!!! I was thinking about adding 2x 7" screen (not touchscreens) instead of my factory dials and then have the virtual guages appear here!
I have found the interfaces i think i needto plug into the car and the pc but not sure where to go now?
I have a 1993 Renualt Clio 16v for reference. Is this the right way to go about it?
Right that should explain what i want to do. SO can it be done and what do i need to buy to allow me to do it? is it even possible?
I look forward to a response and hopefully your help?
