  • How to make it power down when ignition off?

    How can u make the computer shut down when your turn the ignition in the car off..?

    And then turn back on again when ignition turned on... and continue in the same place?

    All seems quite confusing to me!

    1. Search for "shutdown controller". You can also connect a simple relay to the ACC line on your car, though that is much more crude.

    2. Various plugins exist for whatever player you choose that allow it to resume from a shutdown. Check the website for your player for more info.
