As my carputer is still stuck in long planning phase
, and one of the features I will be implementing is definitely an XM, I thought I'd go with Commander approach for a while, and then switch to carputer control when I have it.
The question is, actually - if I get Commander package (base unit and control unit), will I be later able to disconnect control unit and wire base unit of Commander to the serial port, as you guys do with Direct base unit. from puctures it seems that these two units are fairly similar, but I've found some info about difference in powering them. I think I should be able to overcome power issues, what I'm more interested in - does Commander have same exact data interface as Direct have?
Thanks a lot for all replies !
