This has been one of the issues that allowed me to remove the projects easily and when i want to quickly so i can make a change and put it back in without it taking an hour.

    I think it's generally a better idea to bring power to the computer in the car. In my experience Windows freaks out and get unstable when you unplug everything (GPS, Bluetooth, wifi, serial stuff) and run a windows update or any other update. So I just switch out the 12V to the DSATX and plugin a modded ATX PSU instead.
