    Do you have two pc's in the car? I see you have a touchscreen in there as well, Are they both running off one pc or do you have a separate one for your dash?

    Still havent had any issues what so ever, only problem is the fact that Dashcommand does not automatically reconnect after hibernation, so I havent used hibernation. Takes a few seconds longer to completely boot up but I dont have to touch a thing.

    Funny thing is that scenario would be a waste of time to put it back as the car won't work either

    Guess I found another project! I've been testing TouchScan on my current carpc and it seams to work really well. I think I am going to build a dummy panel in front of my current gauge cluster though.

    1998 eclipse install

    I am currently working on a dash install however i am leaving in the old cluster and mounted my screen to my bezel so it just screws in. I plan on using my netbook mounted in glove box with a 12volt fan and wireless mouse ball mounted in the cup holder. I'll post pics within the next few weeks.

    I havent really messed with this too much, but I suppose you could hard wire your vehicle sensors into an input board such as a fusion brain and then map them into Dashcommand somehow...?
