pulled carpc project out of closet after a year, things have changed!
I began my carpc project about a year ago, buying misc. parts whenever I had some spair money (slot loader slim dvd drive, usb adapter, dc-dc psu, etc)
I have 2 questions for you guys:
1) during this time, I bought the GlobalSat BU-303 USB "mouse". it was very popular at this time, and only $50 to boot. it looks like there is more of a variety being used around here now. are the newer ones any better than the one I have?
2) also, Destinator3 + map monkey was the hottest GPS program since sliced bread. it looks like there is also a widened variety of GPS programs being used such as Routis or IGuidance. I never liked the GUI of D3, so hopefully these newer programs will be a good improvement :) I'm going to try IGuidance now.
How do these guys compare to D3? I've read the guys at destinator make you buy the SDK now, and then you have to purchase some DLL file which already expired in august.. that's pretty crappy. I have my setup working though *cough cough* but like I said before, I hate the GUI of D3.
Thanks for the info guys!
