  • I hate newbie threads ......but

    Guys, I hate asking Newbie questions but, Iím new to Car pcís and I have a question.

    Iím putting together the plan for my Car PC and Iíd like some input.

    The car is a GMC Yukon. I want a pc to have GPS mapping, DVD playability, Mobile internet, and OBD capability as well. Iím replacing the head unit w/ an alpine CD, player (for Sirius). Iím planning to play the pc thru the head unit.

    As of now the plan is. Epia M1000. main board. Mounted in a mini ITX box. Laptop Slot loaded dvd in the case as well. Opus DC power supply.Xenarc 7in touch-screen.

    The questions are. What GPS program works best in the US? How do I connect it to the pc?

    How do I get internet connectivity? What additional hardware do I need?

    Thanks for your help!!!
