    I actually wanted to get 2 igeps so I could have one for the lab and one for production. I could hack on the lab one until it's "ready" then I could just swap sd's with the sd card slot in the car and keep running.
    Ah ok that makes sense.... any idea if read/write speeds are the same internal and sd?

    This was my thinking. Plus, it's larger and I was running out of room on the internal one.
