    I think I have decided to go with a VoomPC

    I want to purchase a stage 2 Car PC
    I also plan on purchasing a Lilliput 7".
    I won't add GPS until later on.
    I plan on using windows xp.

    I have a few questions.
    How do I power the Lilliput?
    If I remove my existing head end unit, can that be used to power my Lilliput?
    I see the white connector on rear right of the VoomPC plug into?

    "This complete Car PC system comes with a Jetway VIA C7 1.5GHz Mini-ITX Motherboard, M1-ATX automotive power supply, VoomPC Enclosure, 512MB DDR2 (PC2-5300) Memory and an 80GB SATA 2.5" Hard Drive. This Car PC system comes pre-assembled and tested. All you need is to install your own Operating System, Software, and Touch Screen LCD. This Car PC system does NOT include a CD-ROM. If you need a CD-ROM, we suggest the Ultra Slim External Enclosure USB 2.0."

    You need regulated 12v power. I suggest tapping a HDD power connector for the Lilliput power. Yellow = 12v. Black = ground.

    You could, but it's not recommended. The vehicle does nto provide regulated 12v power.
    Some people have done this and it works just fine. Others have damaged their LCDs. It will definitely shorten the life of your Lilliput screen as well as void the warranty.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?
