  • hey Im new.

    well, I have thought of it off and on for a long time, but recently I've been really really interested in a car pc.

    I drive a 97 Honda Accord. currently it has a stock stereo/cassette player (I use a cassette adapter and my ipod)

    here's what I want to do (eventually)

    in dash touchscreen lcd
    cd/dvd playing/burning capabilities (burning prolly won't work while driving but you never know when you might need this.)
    mp3/video player
    gps, wifi and eventually 3G internet hopefully. (I don't think verizon offers it, but I guess I can switch heh)
    OBD2-usb (if it's as good as getting a scangaugeII)
    I'll also need a USB FM radio since the screen will take it's location.
    and I would really like to be able to have at least 5.1 surround
    and a usb hub.

    I think thats all. that will be finished product.
    priority is mp3/gps/wifi

    well, thats what I WANT to do anyway, I guess we will see how it all works out.

    I gotta figure out where to put it all though.
    I saw a pic on here of a cd drive in the storage box of a honda
    but I'd like it to be easier to access.
    if motorized screens are small enough I might could also fit the drive in the dash below it. or try one of the laptop drives.

    but enough of that, I'm just glad I found this site.
