  • Suggestions for new install

    Hi all,
    This is my first post and my first project. I'm looking for suggestions for my first installation which will be in my 2008 Peugeot Expert Van. I don't have a budget yet and I don't have unlimited funds.

    So far I've considered installing a double DIN car DVD player type unit but from what I read the more affordable units don't much processing power and I'd rather have an x86 based system so that I can run the OS of my choice.
    The van has a small display in the dash which could have had Peugeot's own GPS system unstalled in as an option. I was thinking of trying to source a replacement console into which I could mount a bigger VGA screen.

    My latest thoughts are to get a cheap Double touchscreen DIN DVD player, rip out the innards and possible install one of the new mini-itx atom mobos which would (hopefully) allow me to run media on one display which GPS is run on the other.

    I also have the option of mounting a display where the rearview mirror would go for either GPS or rear view / reversing camera.

    The rear load compartment will have a small PC with a 15" monitor mounted to the side panel with somewhere to sit. This will be used for Wireless link surveying, installation and testing. This part should be pretty simple.

    Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

    Many thanks,
