  • Which OS to use?

    Hello, I was just curious what version of Windows XP is better to run in an automotive environment, XP sp1 or XP sp2? should I update to sp2 or not? thanks

    either is fine. sp2 may give you a bit of a hard time installing widcomm drivers for a bluetooth dongle, but can, for instance auto-connect to open wifi access points automatically.

      I usually stay up to date with xp for security reasons but I suppose thats irrelevant in a carpc unless its on-line. I'd install SP2 though, I haven't had any issues with it.
