My face won't be an LCD screen. The LCD screen will be put elsewhere. The face will be a custom made panel designed to look like a factory radio face. It will have volume control (hall effect sensors), a radio tuner, an LED character screen like the ones you see on CD players (typical 4x20), and any other things you find on typical modern factory radios, plus perhaps USB ports and any other inputs that I can think of which are needed in front.
PS: I forgot to mention that I will make a hole for the slimline DVD/CD drive like the one here:
Also, I intend to make this carputer removable by unscrewing a few bolts or screws.
I built the two that I had, but that was because I was doing it back when there were no pre-built systems to buy.
Although now that I think about it, I would still build it myself even with pre-built systems to buy. It's just much more satisfying, imo.
Old Systems retired due to new car
New system at design/prototype stage on BeagleBoard.
I thought FTW meant F... the World. (meaning doing it your own way)
