  • navisurfer II

    Anyone have experience with the navisurfer II ( It doesn't look like the nicest car PC, but seem hard to beat the price for a prebuilt car PC.

    Would be nice if there were more details. Such as what the processor is and what ports are available.

        the navisurfer II's are towards the bottom... i might have to invest for that price... i think i might need to scratch the laptop i was gonna use and give that to my brother

          I guess I'm not the only person who reads Jalopnik... I'm lookin' into this as well. I'm not really impressed by the physical presentation, but I might could get over that for the price. I wish there were some more specs. Does anyone have any better info?


          • #6
            The price is awsome! Not sure if I wanted that (couldn't fit in my car anyway), and I do like the satisfaction of building things myself, but maybe for the wife's car this is a great deal.

              i saw this on the technabob blog . . . damn, it sure looks tempting! i would like to hear some first-hand experiences with it first. i've just got my laptop that i was going to use for carPC (HP Pavilion zv6000) working again, but this just might lead me to sell the laptop and go for the Navi!

                this peeked my interest as well, not really sure what exactly is bad looking about it. As far as the screen it looks just as good or bad as any other 7in carputer screen. The bezel could be smaller and thinner but its not bad.

                Looking at there older carputers , they all use intel chips so im guessing this one likely does also, but you never really know till its confirmed. I wish there were more choices in carputers in this form factor, something i can just put in and be done with it but also isnt $2k to buy like some other indash carputers.

                  ive bought one , i think they have only just been released this month
                  hold on people and ill give a review when it arrives , which will hopefully be next week when im off on half term . so the old z3 will be getting a new stereo

                  2 things im unsure about though

                  is the screen motorised ? ( cant c any button to make it pop out)
                  is there a built in amplifier ?


                  • #10
                    Another question

                    I agree, does it have a built in amp?

                    Also, does it have speaker level output, or simply line out and a LOC is required?


                    • #11
                      I just came here to post if anyone had seen this, so I guess it is kind of new. I'll sit back and watch for a while.

                        seems to be a nice all in one setup.

                          Funny. It looks remarkably similar to the DWW-6500 sold by Armen of Digital Worldwide.
                          Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
                          How about the Wiki?

                            If you are looking for an all-in-one computer, this is not what you want. If you notice the product description, "2 DIN IN-DASH MONITOR WITH DVD DRIVE" you would be buying the screen and the DVD drive. Nothing is said about an actual computer except that you can hook up to a computer via usb.
