    New Carpcv2.0: Xenarc or tablet?

    Guys,

    I have had a Carpc in my car for almost 3 years now. So far it has been an interesting challenge and the need to integrate everything together is always there.

    The shop where I had my car recently worked on somehow managed to break my screen and the owner (without any hesitation or confrontation) offered to pay for a new one. (I showed him the broken screen a week after I got my car back!).

    So here is the dilemma: I have always wanted to replace the entire system with a dual input (includes touch) 10-12" tablet. Some of the highend ones nowadays even come with antiglare and sunlight readable screens.

    Should I use the check he is giving me for a new project or simply replace the xenarc? I can always sell the rest of the components which includes a shuttle.

    please put in your feedback.

    Go for the tablet, and if you're going to dismantle it and do an in-dash install like TURBOCAD6, you may find it cheaper to install an aftermarket touchkit on a sunlight readable XP Tablet edition vice dual-function. I've run tablets for years and love'em.

    Gizmo,

    Wouldn't adding a touchkit on top of a tablet sorta ruin the sunlight readability?
