    Is there a In-Dash mini computer?

    Hi guys, I am new to this forum. I am currently looking at setting up a in-car computer so I can use it for navigation and use it to play dvd, mp3, and video games. Do you guys know if there iis a In-Dash mini computer out there? or I will have to built one my self?

    Use the search function in the top right corner. But since youre new here is a link to a very mini computer. In the future search the board before asking.

    Here are some pictures of "mini computers". I particularly like the PDP-8 minicomputer. Or is that not what you meant?

    jza80 - welcome, please be a bit more discriptive.... in dash PCs are rare due to mounting and space available, really serch around a bit, read the projects forum. come up with a plan and double or triple the dollar amount you think it will cost.

    themurph1018 - it was a quick move from new poster to use the search replies ;-)

    You could put one of those in your ride... provided you drove an 18 wheeler.
