    Cool Stock navigation on Hyundai Genesis and Sonata Runs Windows CE

    I was reading this thread here:
    http://www.gencoupe.com/electrical-w...-nav-hack.html

    And it seems the new hyundai cars come "pre installed" with a car PC running Windows CE. It just needs to be unlocked. I figured you guys might be interested in this.

    They have already started a bit of work on this, but it has gotten a bit stagnant as of late. Here is the project page for it:
    http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawik...itle=Main_Page

    The system runs on a TI OMAP 2430 chip which has an ARM1136 core and dedicated 2D/3D graphics.

    The problem is, it seems to be a bit hard to unlock it far enough to install anything useful. My goal in posting this link here is that I think there is probably a lot more experienced people on this forum, and they might be able to help. I think it would be really cool to have system-level access to a machine that is already patched into the car's ECU and can show live gauges and record engine status along with video.

    The other thing I would be interested in finding out is how feasible would it be to install linux or android on it?


    Well, just thought I would share this little bit of info, I figured people on this forum would find it interesting. Hopefully it will be able to get developed into something useful.

    You may want to post this over on the Centrafuse forums. They are actually working on a WinCE FE.

    just when i am trying to get away from considering buying one...(i want a red 3.8 track with fabric seats)

    but still-- there has been some discussions in the past on embedded wince devices--usually the cheap ebay hu's. i don't think this will be much different.


    there isn't much you can do with it because it has limited io.

    Yea I was wondering about that. Like if you were to replace the front end, how would it know to use the touchscreen and gps and what not. Those would have to be made available?

    same as those ebay boxes, someone would need to locate or create a driver for each component of the factory equipment, and then somehow add onto that..

    i have not read of much luck with the ebay boxes, so i don't believe the genesis guys will have much luck with this either--i would like to see them succeed, but the past is usually indicative of the future..

    i still don't understand why they want to mod the factory hu.. they make a dd frame for that car, and the hvac controls are not integrated into the screen(the first 2 things i checked when i started looking) so installing a carpc/ aftermarket unit is easy...

    I think one of the main incentives to opening up the OEM nav is because it is tied in to the CAN, and can potentially display and datalog engine data (RPM, road speed, temps, boost, etc....) as well as recording video. Looking on the TI site, the processor seems to have a lot of resources dedicated to recording video, and it is not being utilized. I think that would be a cool feature to have when going onto the track. Have a video recording with performance telemetry to go along with it.

    Also, it is absolutely possible to DIY a car PC and install it, but there is something to be said for using factory equipment. I can definitely see the appeal.
