    How much speed do you need in your dash?

    Actually, I just loaded MCE rollup2 on my unit and it runs pretty nice. It wasn't playing any video, but then I loaded powerDVD and it works fine now. That's because Microsoft doesn't support the hardware DVD decoder currently.

    I had to drop the res down to 640x480 to have buttons big enough use. Media Center is cool, but I think Mobile Impact is more practical because it supports GPS software.

    Does anyone know if there's a navigation system that runs within MCE? Microsoft Streets would be the natural option, but then again MS never thought MCE would be used in a mobile application like this.

    I'm happy with the hardware. It has more than enough power for my car. I'll do some benchmarks on it sometime and share the results. It's definately worth upgrading to the 1.3Ghz board. 22 second boot time. Although I think most of the speed increase has more to do with the chipset change.

    I also put a SATA 2.5 hdd in mine. Very quick.

    If anyone's interested, I'll put together a step-by-step guide with pictures of what I did to upgrade my Carma car pc.

    Merv - If you could do that it would be awesome. I've got a great interest in it. Seriously considering ordering one as soon as I got a bit of extra cash. So pics of the inside would be great.

    Merv:

    With the old board, what amount of Memory did you have, and have you upgraded it then? Did you see a boot up difference or didn`t it helped a lot?

    I now have 256MB 400MHz and i think about upgrading to 1GB 400MHz But i have heard that it takes longer to write to an 1GB module then a 512. So that`s really a bit what i`m looking at now.

    Arrow So any more reviews?

    OK, so any more reviews on this? Or further testing? Is it worth the $$$

    How does it run DVD's and media materials? Can u run all the things like a frontend, Bluetooth, FM radio rear camera, etc all at once without performance issues? Is it jerky or its OK?

    Cheers

    I've bitten the bullet and ordered one of these indash computers. They are now standard with 512mb and cd-rw/dvd for 533USD. free shipping from China lucky me!

    When I receive it I will open it up and take photos of the inside and put it too the test.

    I just got mine last night. It seems to run fine. I only had about 30 min to play. I'll take some pictures and what not.

    How did you program the front panel keys?
