    Anything better then this for an All in One Double Din CarPC solution?

    Hey Everyone!

    I have an 03 Chevy TrailBlaizer that I've been wanting to throw a Carputer in for awhile now. I researched going the macmini route, but ran into so many issues, as far as screen placement in my truck.

    I'm a technical guy, but when it comes down to putting Car stereo's in, I only know the very very basic stuff. And with the Bose system that my Chevy has, I have been told that a full stereo replacement is going to get pretty complex from the installers point a view. So I decided it would be better if I just leave the installing to actual certified Installers.

    To make things simple, I started looking at All in one Double Din Car PC's, and found this one:

    http://chinagrabber.com/double-din-7...r-pc-2270.aspx

    It seems to have everything I need except for an Audio Input for my MP3 Player.

    Does anyone know of anything better then this? What would you guys recommend? I'm a bit iffy about ordering from a place like this, as I haven't heard any reviews of them, and this seems to be more or less a no name brand PC.

    not so sure of that unit..

    one of the problems i am seeing with older all-in-one units is parts--the older g4 systems-- no one can get parts, and everything is special to that model(including stupid things like touch screen drivers), so you can't just slap a new hard drive in it when the hdd fails, you have to find a service center, and then have them do everything, if there is still one around. otherwise, you have a large, expensive paper wheight...

    I've dealt with the company before..shenzen electronics (not sure on the sp). They produce a good portion of chinas infotainment systems but aren't exactly known for their quality. The unit was advertised as a Z530 CPU (decent speed dual core) but usually shipped with a z510 (very slow single core). Also, some of the functions they advertise internally are actually external like the wifi and 3G.

    Thats revo-sys...do a quick search on the forums and you'll see why they're resorting to selling them on ebay. My biggest issue with them though is that the radio isn't integrated so theres no way to mute it for nav instructions or a phone call.
