  • Have several questions about Incar pc's

    Hello i am new to this site but not really all that new to car eletronics in general.I have several questions that perhaps someone here can assist with.
    I tried contacting mp3car directly but the tech didnt seem too confident in his answers to my questions.
    Here are my questions

    I need a carputer that will run xp,but also have the ability for me to install a pci dvr card "to record video from several cameras that i will install in the car.

    Also i need to use this unit as the main source for all the cars media needs IE am/fm dvd and cd and also a XM tuner,What complete computer does all that and also what would be the pros and cons to such a setup??

    Next i need to be able to connect this puter to the car thru obdII,i have a raptor datalogger already and will be using this in a focus,any suggestions?

    I need to be able to have video on several screens is there anything that i will need to add other than a video amplifier ?

    what GUI do most people here feel is the best?Ive used drivsoft before but i still want to look into other programs.

    lastly,i would like to be able to control the puter from the trunk of the car using a screen mounted there along with the indash screen
    Is there any way to intergrate the 2 screens or am i SOL on that ???


    Any help would be apreciated

    thanks in advance

          I like the way you say you need, rather than you want... at least you're determined.

          If your need is imediate & you plan on doing this yourself then you should spend the next few weeks reading everything you can on these forums & then the next few weeks after that sourcing & installing & configuring.... if your really good you may have a system up & working within a few months... there is no magic answer to your question, unless someone can point you twards a professional installer who would be difficult to find at this point, & again, you may have a system up & working in a few months

          there really is no way to just buy what it is you want completely, the only way to get it is to either imerse yourself into it for months or be lucky enough to find someone who could do it for just money

              my advice was really intended as help, I was just trying to inform you of what you are up against, if you really want to do this then you need to learn alot, there is no one answer that is going to make a difference for you.

              there are many aspects involved in a system like what you propose, basically it's either you learn or you pay, if you could even find someone to do that for you... if thats "unfriendly" then I'm sorry, what would be more friendly, someone doing this for you? what exactly is it that you expected to see here as a response?

              as far as your monitor question google for ultramon, obd2 has a whole lot of info posted in it's own section, any one answer you get from anybody will just be there opinion, best advice there again is to read what many others have discussed & you make your own opinions as to what seems best for you. GUI's are widely varied & have many different traits, the only way to know what will work for you again is... oh you probably don't want to even hear it, but searching is a better answer than someone just giving you there opinion as to what they think is best, no?

              bottom line is someone telling you to search is really friendly advice, & is alot better than someone just giving there personal opinion... unless you just wanted someone to list exactly what they think you should use.... how would you even know the answer you got is the best choice for you & your particular install? would you rather just do whatever someone told you to do blindly without knowing all of your options?

              welcome to the forum & the advice I would give any friend is
