  • carputer cost?

    I am very interested in a carputer and have just started reading about them. I want one to play dvd's and for navigation. I plan on using a headunite for cd's and radio etc. I was wondering if anyone could give me a general price range for the cost of the parts to put something like this together. just for the carputer not the tv screen.
    thanks

            Just a basic one over at directron.com. It's pretty big, bulky, retarded for a small case, but it does its job in the trunk. I need to get a little one to save space. That's when I've got time to kill though.

              Is there a monthly fee for GPS or do you just buy a program if so how much?

                GPS is free... It just locks onto satellites.
