    I drive a 93 Accord with 70K miles on it. It was babied by my grand parents up untill It was gifted to me. The thing looks nearly brand new save for a nicked rear bumper.

    Im hapy to say - Mine does everything !!!!! muuuha ha ha ha

    lets see - TV(haupung wintv usb) DVD (firewire under drivers seat) MP3's of course. WiFi w/ extra antenna (someone check out uswo.net - they blanket my home town with a cloud of sweet 802.11b) bluetooth for wireless 56k via my T68-i if need be. plugins so t-68i can show and controle winamp via bluetooth. (soo cool) vga touch flush mounted in dash (lots of work) and GPS via the garmin gps-16

    WHO NEEDS AN OFFICE !?!? I got pc car.

    The web site only has my old system pictured on it.
    I gota take photos of the new set up.

    I need to learn more about Bluetooth.. Any useful links you have used? Also, since we ARE talking about our setups, what GPS software are you using? CoPilot SUCKS for my area, it doesn't show roads, just major town places.. So its useless for me.. :-\

    Yo how cool would it be to like advertise your wireless network information and have people sync up to hear your beats as you all cruise down the street?

    Hehehe

    It would be a nightmare to setup so I dont think its cool. Besides I dont think you can broadcast the song you're listening via WiFi so that other people can hear what youre playing. Besides, having a CarPC is a rareity. Having 2 CarPCs with WiFi on both cars driving side by side that connects with eachother via peer to peer connection without knowing eachother is like a million to one chance.

    Like I said in another thread:

    You want to broadcast what you're listening to, get a nice broadcast-quality FM transmitter, and tweak that puppy with some nice wattage, so that everyone within a mile radius has all their stations drowned out by your music of choice. Viola! Brittany Spears fades to static, fades straight to Radiohead. Stupid blondes in Volkswagen next to me are instantly confused. Hilarity ensues.

    amd xp 2500+
    120gb hard drive
    512mb ram
    7" tft exnarc touch screen

    dvd's, mp3s, divx, gps, wireless internet via sprint cell phone, 802.11g for transfering files to the car when im upstairs on my main computer and for war , 3 camera system (for taking cool videos of me driving), haven't done tv yet but would like to when they make satellite antenna's cheaper and smaller.

    thats it.

    btw.. im running dual exnarc screens. one for playing movies and visualizations, and the other for everything else im doing at the same time. works nicely on car trips.. the wife can watch a movie while i have gps going.

    im going to extend this and add 2 screens to the rear which will have their own desktop and full functionability.. in other words.. they can do whatever they want on the rear screens independendlty.

    siueclipse, how do you plan on setting up your rear screens? Will you have a seperate computer or are you multitasking a single machine? If you're multitasking with that many screens I would assume you'll have a second computer or a computer with dual processors.
    The setup sounds great. I was actually thinking of setting something up similar to this. That's why I ask.
