    I wouldn't say it's garbage, necessarily.
    I would say that it's way overpriced and underpowered, however.

    You can build a far better PC for a lot less money by doing it yourself.
    If you can fabricate, you could even make one to fit in a single DIN like this unit.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    True, but in Australia, these parts are not cheap and not a huge following to the point were these items go on special.

    I think the SP13000 would be sufficent though.

    Still it would be a complete unit ready to plug in and drive away.

    Cheers

    Hi,

    I have one built in in my Opel Omega. The unit comes with a lot stuff, also built in Bluetooth. My only concern is cpu speed. I personally think its too slow. Mine has 256 MB ram, but i haven`t upgraded to 1GB because i think this would not make a real difference with loading times/booting Windows and i don`t want to spend another 100$ on a 1GB for nothing.

    But indeed the DVD player that doesn`t need you to boot Windows is nice. Only thing i miss is that the PC, Media Player and Power option from the main screen can`t be used with the Touch Screen (also Lilliput).

    Does anyone think tha upgrading to 1GB will solve most problems like loading times? I tried XP, WinME and now W2K but they are all slow.

    There is a whole forum dedicated to optimizing boot times. Check there.

    Your second link doesn't work?

    It seems like it's worth the cash, I'm seriously thinking about. Thoughts?

    $450.00

    If someone actually gets this let me know if it's fast enough to run media center.

    ebay car pc etc

    yeah.. .here is a store on ebay for these units.... its all in what you want... if you have the time to build your own... do it... if you dont and can accept the compromise... then try it... its always a chance when you buy something off ebay ... then add the overseas support if/when needed. just way it out.

    I bought mine directly from Lilliput as a sample order together with 2x Lilliput Touch Screens. Hopefully i will get my loading times faster and an optimized XP with Phone Control an inCar Terminal software

    But a lot f different brands have it. Also an nice (out of the box) function is that it shutdowns Windows when u turn off the ignition. So no direct power cut.

    Just Hibernate to shut down. Take most computers about 8 seconds to close and boot...but like the person above said...there are other forums for this.

    I like this one because it does go into the dash and "looks" professional.
    Yes it does cost more, but what's 200.00 in the who scheme of things.

    Yeah i know, i already searched and found some ood tips for changing the size o the install and optimizing boot itmes. Thx for that.

    Also, thu unit makes a hell of a noise. It is extremely loud. It has 2 small fans in the back of the unit that really have to spin to make the air flow. That was a bit of a turnoff when i installed it. I have built it in my glove compartment. With the radio on you don`t hear it, but without u can hear it with the glovebox closed :S .

    Do you think it would still be loud installed into an enclosed dashboard?
