  • what kind/type of usb hub to buy?

    Hi folks, what type of USB hub would I need to get to work well in the car? Powering the lcd screen, most likely a gps unit, and maybe a cam. I was told it needs to be powered. But how do I connect it to the car? Is it fairly straight forward? Are there usb units designed to work in the car with detailed instructions for installing them?

    yes get powered, it does not "power the lcd screen" - it runs the touch screen which is low power, but the camera is likely a power hog and the gps is in need of good power... you can run a 5v supply from your computer's power supply OR you can get a 5v power regulator from the mp3car store for like $30...
