    I have yet to install a carputer but I'm a geek, so it will happen soon, but besides the functionality you've outlined I'd like to:

    • Help fight Cancer www.grid.org
    • Help fight other degenerative diseases http://folding.stanford.edu/
    • Wardriving
    • Warspying
    • Playing games with Nesticle, Mame, etc...
    • Add rewind capability and timed recording ability to any audio source
    • Traffic/Weather/Earthquake alerts
    • Using OBDII, dash camer, my own encrypted black box that I could unlock to use against someone else
    • Synchronize address book, contacts, notes etc.. from phone, pocket pc
    • read aloud email, text books, etc...

    Sometimes you see a traffic camera, sometimes you see a hotel room that you should never stay at.

    Easy to miss, I definately think this would be cool though. I haven't really heard what people are doing, is there any integration, or is it just people using the bundled software to tune and listen?

    You can use your CarPuter to monitor your amps' temperature... turn amp cooling fans ON/OFF once it reaches a certain temp.
