    Radio NO Car HU

    Ok so I have been reading for the last few days and asking hear and there. I have just about all I need for my new car puter running in my BMW 330i. I am currently driving (passenger) down the highway testing internet via a cell phone, works great. I have everything I need, gps, cell phone (blue tooth for calls), internet (cell phone), but I need to concentrate on the radio portion.

    I want to remove my entire Head Unit and use a FM turner card in the pc to receive radio via the computer. What card is everyone using to do this and what application? I have only found people using HU->PC->Amp type of setups which is still relying on the old HU.

    My system will look just like this in mycar;

    Where the lcd is on top and my ac controls are down below and no room for a HU. I currently have the harmon Karmon system in my car where I can control the radio funstions via a steering wheel and I know that I would use a I-BUS adapter to connect the car to the PC so I think I have this covered.

    How would you hook up the inbound antenna too? I am sure others are running this type of setup.

    Depends of the Front End, the Plugin that you are using (like radiator), the space the you have in you case (low profile),if you have a PCI slot in you MOBO(or if not you may wat to use a USB kind) and finally if you want all the futures that you can find in a HU (AM/FM RDS/RBDS) check this thread:
