Double-DIN carputer case vs. Remotely mounted case
Hi everyone, I just picked up a used Infill G4 double-DIN carputer but I think I might be looking at building something new since the G4 is kind of outdated.
I'm posisbly looking at building a new carputer, but I'm not sure of the difference between using a double-DIN enclosure (like this: http://store.mp3car.com/Black_BBX_1_..._p/enc-045.htm) versus a separate case mounted remotely.
Can you essentially install the same hardware and have the same features between the two different types of cases? Or does the double-DIN case limit you? If the double-DIN limits you, what differences can I expect when it comes to options for hardware and whatnot?
I mainly want to you the carputer for multimedia and Internet. I won't be doing video processing, using Photoshop, or any of that type of high-demanding software. I just want to play music, video (digital files, Blu-Ray, DVD, YouTube) and have a good enough graphics processor for providing great video quality, and cruise the Internet. Having several USB ports is a must, but I'm not too picky on where the USB ports are located because I can always run USB extensions to my glove box or something. I will also want HDMI as well as RCA video inputs and outputs. Navigation, FM Radio, and reverse camera support would be great too.
Can I accomplish all of the above with a Double-DIN case, or should I be looking into a separate case mounted somewhere else in the car? Thanks in advance!
