  • Canabalize EeePC 701 for 2002 Mustang Dash PC

    Right now I'm putting together plans to mount an EeePC in my 2002 mustang and remove the screen to mount it on my head unit. Rather than buy a new head set I plan to just remove all the buttons and beveling from the head set and attach the 7" screen (w/ a touchscreen film) to the front of the unit. The audio will be run from the computer's audio jack to an AUX input on the back of the head unit. I plan to add bluetooth, GPS and WAN support to the laptop and write my own software interface. Estimated cost is less than $400

    Another idea I've been toying with is using a micro-projector to overlay information such as a GPS map on the windshield. I'm just trying to brainstorm a way to project information without blinding oncoming traffic or skewing the image too much.

    Any suggestions or ideas will be appreciated.
