Well, the car is not very exciting, but I am more of a computer person than a car person.
I mounted the screen to a peice of Plexiglas that I painted black. There are two buttons: one to turn on the compuer and the other for the LCD. I am currently working on a automatic on/off circuit.
There is a little glare on this screen, but when I tint the windows, it should not be an issue. Next time I remove the Plexiglas I will repaint it to better match the interior.
The computer is stowed away in this compartment in the back. When the top is closed, there are no wires or anything to see.
I picked up this case for $5. It is sturdy and easy to work with. It's nice to be able to remove the computer and use it other places.
The software is all custom stuff I made. No driving directions yet, although address lookup is half written. Everything runs on redhat 9.0.
The gps is that cheap $30 digitraveler from radio shack. It is slow to lock on, but I dont have any spare cash for a better one.
