  • What should I do next?

    Hey folks,

    I'm a little bit new here, but I do have my PC up and running in my car. Basically I'm just using it to play my MP3s so far. I'm taking a break for a week or two, but my question is... what should I work on next? I have $125 in gift certificates to Staples that I will most likely spend on Carputer stuff. My options include:

    GPS (I'm thinking Delorme Earthmate with whatever software that includes)
    WIFI (To make transferring files between car and home computers easier)
    Wireless keyboard/mouse (touchscreen doesn't quite do everything I'd like)
    TV tuner card (Although I've been reading that getting good reception is tricky)

    Well, just looking for input. thanks!

    I vote for GPS. Staples has ****ty wifi. If you had 125 in cash I'd say get Orinoco (or similar card with external antenna plug) and a external antenna.

      I vote for GPS. Sounds like you have a touch screen. Its a natch.

        I've put more money into the Carputer than I really wanted to right off the bat, so I don't want to spend the cash. I got the certificates because I had 20,000 Membership Rewards points from my American Express card. I didn't like anything they were offering so I just got the certificates. I got $125 for Staples and $75 for Kids R Us, because I figured I could probably use those on diapers and stuff (not for me.) Anyway thanks for the input.
