  • Just a general fun question, mosey on in at your leisure...

    I was wonderin', I know we got us some o' the best wishful thinkers in here, and I was wonderin', if money was no object, what would everybody put in thier systems, and what car/truck/etc would you put it in? Try to include unique stuff, and remember, it must be technically feasible (ie: no telepathic interfaces). It would just be fun to see what everybody would have. Even if you only have a great idea for some new, "Oh, that would be so cool, I'd have never thought of that" peripheral, I'd love to hear it!

    I'll get around to posting my list in day or two.

    Well, apart from the MP3's, I'd like to put a GPS system, and also a front- and rear-pointing infra-red camera system to help on the night vision. I wouldn't really want a DVD player in it, as it would probably distract me too much

    Venomous MP3!
    CarMP3 system:
    200mhz, 20gb hotswapable drive, 128mb, Winamp w/full-screen vizes, (upgrading to WinAmp3 in near future), 5" LCD screen, controled by numberpad, Sproggy PS under construction, custom mounting case under construction.

      My dream system would play mp3's, dvds, and be a gps. This is actually the system that I'm working on. And speaking of dreaming, I wish I had the research and money to figure out the police gps so I could possibly zero in one where police cars were (just a dream).

                    Fosgate and Bakaasi: yes, i wrote the app my self and it runs on win9x. For DVD i will strongly suggest u install win98. I also wrote the cobra mp3...I will come out with a better version this summer.

Everythink should be controlled trought a few 4-6 buttons included in the wheel...

                        Apart form a MP3 player and GPS system, I would like to have a voice recognition system to control everything, and to dictate notes & emails. Also a connection to my mobile phone to send the e-mail and look for traffic information on the internet.
