This worklog will show the progress of the build and go into a level of detail on what it takes to make all this stuff work together.

    I'm going to attempt to keep this build log somewhat formatted, so the next several posts will serve as empty containers until a later time. Enjoy!

                Status Update

                As of today, the ODROID, monitor and car audio is installed. I'm currently running off the primary battery, with the DC DC Converters both ignition triggered. Being that most of the components have been tried and tested before, and the fact that it was absolutely DREADFUL driving in a car with ONLY FM radio, I figured it was well time to get some live testing done with the system!

                To compensate for having to see a boot screen every time I turn the car on (for the time being), I created a custom 720p landscape boot animation for Android. Its very simple and doesn't slow down the boot time. If anyone would like it, let me know.

                      Something is wrong with the attachment in your last post.

                          Looking good currently putting together the same thing but with a odroid-u2 (looking at the xu3 in not to distant future) interested in your boot animation if your willing to share Also planning on getting a monkey board at some stage. Will be keeping an eye on the thread.

                            This is pretty awesome Sonicxtacy02! I've never really looked into android but this is an eye opener. Just had a question for you. What is the most current hardware right now to go this route? I ask because I might consider switching over from carpc to this. I like the small footprint and I can imagine this uses apps just like an android phone/tablet? Do you have any suggestion for capacitive multi touch touchscreen that could also offer a rear camera input with auto switch? Hopefully something with options in sizes like 8" or 9"
                            I'll be keeping my eyes open for those odroid

                              heres the zip file for the boot animation: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B8q...it?usp=sharing

                              and if you want to edit the psd: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B8q...it?usp=sharing

                              Use Boot Image Factory on Windows to prepare your .zip image. Its a great app
