    Need some input, probably getting rid of CarPC

    OK, here's the deal. I think I'm just going to get an ipod type device, looking at a Dell DJ-30. 30 gig mp3/wma player, that supports Rhapsody to go. Rhapsody to go is $14 a month, and lets me basically download an unlimited amount of albums to listen to onto my DJ, as long as I keep the subscription current.

    So, I think I'm going to take out my CarPC completely, take apart and fiberglass a DJ cradle into my dash where my screen is now. After frying my screen and all, I really think I want something simpler. With the cradle, I can wire it to my HU's aux input, and wire the power straight to my acc, and no wires would ever show. This way I can just drop my DJ right into the cradle, it will charge it, and provide the audio connection as well.

    I may return with the CarPC project later, probably when I get a new car.

    Can anybody give me any pros/cons about what I'm about to do? I'd like some input just in case I didn't think about this clearly enough.

    all depends what you do with the carpc..... if it's mainly about mp3's you don't really need a pc.....

    I would never want to be without my carpc & it has nothing to do with mp3's or music or even navigation..... I like it for instant internet access the most I think....

    so the question really is are you willing to give all that up?

    most people don't NEED a carpc, doen't make them WANT it any less though...

    Man I don't know. I've got my Dell DJ-30 on order, probably be here in a month (?!) or so. Until then I don't know. Anybody ever play with a Dell DJ? If it sucks, then I am gonna hate life if I scrap my carpc...

    I knew I forgot something important! I should. Well eff, now I'm on the hunt for a new PSone Screen I guess. This'll be neat, turbocad6, you are the man.

    I feel like a fewman, I should have thought of that...
