  • Iphone as CarPC

    Ok so with the iPhone Car Navigation Kit & a wifi obd2 connector i think the iphone could be a HELL of a car pc.

    Not to mention the V1 beta testing (i believe im n the early adopter prgm for that) to add a radar detector to it.

    and i wouldnt use the obd2 constantly so i could have xm/sirius, internet radio, radar detector, etc etc etc...(wifi hot spot) (war driver... )

    Questions:

    I wanna upgrade my car stereo to somehting that has an iphone input...can i use both the iPhone Car Navigation Kit and the stereo input?

    If so then look forward to a sick WJ iphone integration....(once i can figure out how to unlock the doors and turn on the car with it b/f its in the car then were in business


    PLEASE COMMENTS PLEASE any suggestions for or against PLEASE

    Small screen, and small working area. So i would use an iPad rather than a iPhone. But for that price your would buy a complete (and powerfull) carPC system.
    Try to press button on an iphone placed on your dash while the car is moving, it's already hard to do with a 7" screen.
