use laptop as the carputer?
I'm totally new to this so please bare with me. I'm thinking of putting in a carputer into my next car, which is going to be a 2006 prius. I haven't seen anyone with a prius and a carputer. I'm debating on whether to get the navi or not. i have the navi on order, but would like to get a carputer instead.
my question is this. Is it possible to use a docking station that will securely hold a laptop in place and still be able to access all of the functions using an external touchscreen device?
The reason I would like to do this is because I carry around a laptop with me all of the time and it just doesnt make sense to me to have yet another computer in the car.
Does this make sense? what would be needed?
