Not trying to discourage anyone, because I'm a newbie I am still debating whether or not to build one of these carPCs or carputers. My main beef is that booting up process seems cumbersome if my only purpose is to listen to tunes on the way to the grocery... I'd be there before the OS initializes! Of course, there is hibernation and it's what I would do, but I know that there will be required reboots. I have some HUs in mind that would play mp3s and whatnot (no booting too). What do you think is the difference between the shelf bought multimedia centers with built in lcd and the carputer as far as hardware/software integration? I mean is all the software that drives the aftermarket HUs written from the ground up and small enough to be embedded in onbaord memory? Anybody ever taken one of these things apart to see what components are in there?...
No announcement yet.
