Back after 1.5yr of no CarPc, Help me spend my money! Whats new/best?
Haven't been on here in ages and havent tinkered with my carpc for even longer. I got frustrated a few months after CF2 came out and gave up on the carpc (mainly due to CF2). I pulled my monitor out of the car for a robot project and havent fooled with it since and that was a year and a half ago. I'd like to get back in the game I have some money from a bonus burning a hole in my pocket and if I wait to long reality will kick in and I'll end up using it for bills so I need to spend it quick!!
I need a new monitor and I've seen on mocoso they have capacitance liliput 7s now. Does anyone know if they are better in the daylight than the regular resistance 7s from 2 years ago? I still cant justify the money of the transreflective. Any other recommendations? I'd like to stay with a lilput because I know with out the bezel the screen fits perfect in the space the factory nav would normally be, but I'm willing to explore other options. Are the USB powered ones any good?
Whats new in the way of front ends? I see there is a CF4 out but it seems to be the same story of CF2, CF3, CF3.5 buggy buggy buggy is this really true? I'm still sick I paid full price for CF2 :doh:
Navigation? Whats new and great? I use to run the iGuidance which seem to be the best then. Surely something better has come along? Oh I cant believe CF is still using destinator? Seriously?! I thought they were supposed to have a new engine back for CF3? still the same story in CF4?:crazy:
Bluetooth? Has anyone used the Phoenix MT107 mocoso has? Reads to be promising but a lot of things do.
Finally Mp3cars iphone Mimcs? This looks really exciting if it was a little more polished I would be all over this and sell my carpc. Still very cool huge props to the super smart person/s who has pulled that off.
So there it is folks hope you can help? I am going to start reading through the forms to try and catch up just hope some of you can help me speed up the process. I'd like to start ordering stuff tomorrow :cool:
Thanks in advanced!
One last thing I'm still on XP on the car pc I do have a legit win7 I can put on it. I moved to Mac about the same time I quit the carpc. Is it time to upgrade to win7 or is xp still where its at?
