  • Something I saw recently

    Hi,

    I'm new to the forums. I came here because Google said there was discussions of Computers in cars and Linux here.

    I was wandering through the store today and found a head unit made by a company called Roadmaster VR3. The unit is their VRVD640G. It uses an ARM processor, a USB port and a SD card slot. Only downside is it runs WindowsCE, which is not my operating system of choice.

    Anyone ever installed Linux on one of these? If so, how did it go?

    Thanks,
    denali

    Once you've had the "Carputer" experience, you will wonder how you ever lived without it...

      If he was talking about that one he probably would have put down VRCD400SDU as a model number and not VRVD640G. as for installing Linux on it I'm guessing no

      Edit: your questions about this product would be better answered on the roadmaster forum found here http://www.roadmasterusa.com/forums/

        Actually I've been lurking the forums for weeks now and debating on building a carputer or getting one of these puppies in the end I got the VRVD640G due to financial restraints and after a bit of scouring the net and compiling WinCE programs and games and such here's my end product:

        The following is for anyone who may want it, it's an extra menu for the stereo with 31+ games apps and such that work natively with the stereo without neededing to modify it!
        Detailed instructions are in the README.TXT inside the .rar
