  • Need Guiding With CarPC Info..

    I have a few quick questions that would be great if answered..

    1. Is it possible to hook up a car pc, so that once i plug any ipod/touch/iphone in, it switches to that and plays music?

    2. How do i hook up PC to car for diags and controlling windows/doorlocks etc, i saw fusion brain or something??

    3. Is this classed as a good HU for car stereo, i love good sound ..

    4. I drive an E36 BMW, moving the Climate Controls down to put 7" in top part of dash is what i have decided on, although, are there ANY climate control faces for my car that are rectangular!

    if someone could answer any of these i would be stoked! my priority is really Q4, i can't find a rectangular face anywhere.. didn't know if someone on here made them maybe?

    thanks everyone!

    You can't expect to come here and be spoon-fed. Do some research first then come back with more specific questions that you're still stuck on. When you show the effort to help yourself, I'll be more inclined to help you. I'm sure this feeling is the same with many other members.

      Yes.

      There are OBD interfaces in the shop for diag. Controlling windows and central locking with
      a PC is a very bad idea. I think, security and safety devices should be separated from the pc.

      Depends on your needs. What do you mean by good sound?

      Check this project, more details there, and maybe you should speak with vull.

          It's all good skooki, I just didn't want you sitting there wondering why you were getting no responses.

          Get a crack? Where are you from?

            haha i'm australian

            Oh and by the way simplex, in terms of sound quality i just mean surround sound, and how close the song is to CD quality..

            just the best sound possible i suppose is what i mean

            i just dont know how these measure up against something like Clarion in terms of playing music .. like mp3's and such.
