    Can I use a Laptop?

    Ok I'm totally new to the carpc thing but would like to see what is possible. I have a Dell inspiron and was wondering if that can be used in an install. Then my other question is: Is there any way to set up a laptop with GPS and use it in the car? Thank you for any info that you can offer. I tried the search but didn't find out what I was really looking for.

    but YES you can use a laptop in-car and YES you can use GPS with it.

    Yeah, theres a lot of stuff here about people using laptops as well as gpss. Gps is easy just get microsoft streets and trips and thats everything you need right there. A laptop, tho not used by the majority of people, should be relatively easy to install/ mount.
