    Good morning guys for once more. As i am wainting for the board that will connect the lcd panel to carpc i was searching these front ends softwares. Some questions. Why this sub category doesnt have any post outside the softwares? Also are these front ends standalone os or they run on the top of the windows ? Is there any free software out there ? Sorry but i dint know where to post these questions.

    Front ends run on windows. Most are free with the exception of Centrafuse and Streetdeck. Figuire out what your needs are in a frontend and try them out to see if you have a good fit. SNO

    My personal recommendation is to give Driveline a try, no need to install anything just run the exe after unzipping. It's fast and light on resources. SNO

    Thanks for the tip snotwistr . i ll give it a try . This will happen on the next week cause tomorrow i am leaving athens for some holidays. I was hopping that my conversion lcd to moniotor board would arrived untill now so i would be able to set the whole system up and kind of test it but seems that chinatobby didn't catch me up on this.

    Anyway to get to point again i did'n like the road runner a lot and i though that i prefer the litestep instead of rr. But i will try als the driveline.

    Be well guys . See you soon .

    Hi guys . I am baack from my holidays since friday and today was the first day that i worked with the car pc and it was a dissapointed case.

    Since i ve found trhe controler for the lcd panel that chinattoby sent me ( it was sitting from 3/8 to today to the hellenic posts and) i plug it to the monitor but i did some damaged ( i hope to the board ) so 1 step forward two steps backward.

    Now i have to wait to see waht is wrong. Untill then i have a question.
    This 945 chip was a bad habbit. When i am swithicng screens then on the next post i am taking a black screen on the time that the xp's boot and ask for user pass.this is the seccond time that is happening and the first time i solved it with a clean istall. See i can boot on safe mode but on normal something is happening with the drivers and i get a black screen . Is anybody here who is familiar with this problem and knows a fix ?

    That is for now guys i ll wait for some news from chinatobby and i ll get back to you .

    Ok guys i am very happy. I just tested the 8" lcd that i bought from chinatobby. Now the one thing that has been left is to manufacture a case for the panel and the board.

    ok guys back aagain playing with my new toy.

    i was testingn the driveline and the road runner and i have some questions.

    first of all (DRIVELINE) is there any possibility of see the weather here in greece. also i have an obd cable . will the driveling will read the infos with any cable or it need some specific one.?

    is there any software for doing magic on touchscreens . meaning able to right quick and some scrolling options?

    i will go and buy a small ssd for having it cloned with the windows. are there any tips on that or i ll just buy the cheaper one ?

    the screen on the begging takes no signal . so i am seeing the first screen on the windows bar that moves.

    is there anyway the screen grab some signal on the bios page ?

    thats it for noq guys . i am very happy as it seems God wiling that the pc will be in the car till the end of week.
