After building my first carpc (see link in sig), which is based on a Eee PC 701, I've had many people who've seen it ask me how difficult it was and if I could do one for them.
This got me thinking about what I'd use if I were to build a standard Double-DIN Carputer that could be put into almost any vehicle with little to no setup, hacking or tweaking...
The basic criteria I'd want from this device are:
Media, GPS, Internet (through Bluetooth Cellular Modem), Emulator Games, and possibly OBD
Plus I'd want to keep cost under $400, (which may mean using Linux to save on software costs) and have it be relatively plug and play... Any thoughts??
