Hello gang, thanks in advance for the welcome to this site. I would like to say that there is a wealth of info here.
Im new to car pc's but im an old hat with regular pc's..lol Any how i have a few questions i want to ask and I hope i can find the help i need here. Firstly, i am installed this into my 2006 hyundai sante fe and it has a double din radio bezzle which came with a factory monsoon system which is long gone. My first question is how can install the touchscreen inside there and make it so i can cover the screen when not in use without modding the bezzle. My second question how I protect against wear and tear on hard drives and cd drives with everyday bumbs in the road. and my third and final question is how can i protect my carputer from electrical surges that occur all day in automobiles when starting it, ****ting the engine off etc etc.
Im starting my project with mini-box voom-pc2 and i selected the intel board with the embedded atom processor for its low power cunsumtion. I have downloded the manual via their website but it doesn't go into detail about wiring into the car so i guess now i have a forth question..lol How do i wire it into the car. i have a memphis audio system in my car and im going to remove the head unite completely and with doing that i won't have a remote turn on and im guessing the car pc will do that.
Thanks for any help here.
