Is there any advantage to having 12v out in your actual CarPC, since you in theory could just run it all from battery or what not? What does it make easier, if anything?
well the battery gives you anywhere between 6 and 13.8 volts unregulated. Devices such as mitch's sirius board, and your screen need regulated 12v. So if you had a regulated 12v line out from your case it comes in handy. I have one going to my sirius tuner right now.
