I have had my carpc in for about 3 months now. Haven't had any issues, well major issues. Any issues I've had is from my own stupidity of tinkering with things that were uneeded. Install went as seamless as an amp install. Maybe a bit more wires, but no biggie. I think if you have done your research thoroughly, there shouldn't be any major issues. The only major annoyance I have is cold boot time, but that will be fixed when I get around to tinkering with the OS. After having the access to thousands of songs and hundreds to thousands of movies, music videos, comedy series like The Chappell Show, SNL etc. I wouldn't change back to a normal HU or even a TV HU. Just my two cents. One person posted something about the Ford/microsoft sync, but even that is limited in functionality. I think a carpc is an endless possibility for car entertainment. I'll even bet in the near future we would see an operating system that is an out-of-the-box set up limited only to an entertainment package withouth the nonesense. Where the designer understands the needs of the niche industry. Such things as lightning fast boot times. I for one would be sold to buy an entertainment package OS that was partnered and provenly tested to be seamless with a standard front end such as Street Deck or others. The goal would be to make a one stop purchase and not have to tinker with the software.
