  • does m1-atx replace dc/dc converter???

    hello, i have a question for wich i do not seem to find a answer...my carpc is powered with a dc/dc converter for epia itx (19v)
    http://www.incarterminal.de/catalog/il/465
    ...this works great, but i do not like the fact i have to manually shut down the computer everytime i leave the car ...am i right in presuming the m1-atx 6-24v dc/dc replaces my converter, ans at the same time can be programmed to shut down the computer...does it also turn the computer automaticly on when you start the car, or is this not a possibility? thanx to anyone who can clear this up for me...

    It turns on, shuts down, provides power...

    It's a pretty nice little device.

        It does not, however, wash the car, calculate gas mileage or blow you while you're driving.
        IF they could add that functionality, it would be tres nice.
        Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
        How about the Wiki?

          no need...my wife does all those things...oh no sorry, she can't work the numbers

          seriously, is this a straightforward install, meaning one side of the m1-atx to your car battery, and the other side to the motherboard, or am i still missing something ?

            But most girlfriends would do all three of those things for if you build them a kickin' Carputer.

            On a side note, the latter is quite amusing while driving through a lot of traffic.
