    Dell Venue 8 pro's screen is a little wider than the double din and you might have to modify the bezel to fit it right.

    Rray - if you want to try the size I can bring mine and we can check if the screen would fit in your car. Also, I have a spare capacitive touch screen from some broken NVidia tablet. Though I need to check the size, but if that works for you - pick it up from me, I am not using it.

    About the drivers, I have all the driver for 32 bit. I am not sure if you would find venue 8 pro 64 bit

    Thats something I did not think of... 64 bit drivers. I need to have 64 bit to address 8GB RAM. I have been trying to recover from this cold/flu/cough for 3 weeks now so have not worked on my carpc project lately, but I finally feel better now. Still I'm curious how the Dell screen might fit.

    Have you started on your project yet Pkaush?

    rray you could go with server 2003 ee 32bit and convert to workstation, add the /pae switch and see 8 gig ram on 32bit system. It works great and is smokin fast on pretty well any system. Just a thought SNO

    Well, Office work, cold/cough have been keeping me busy too. I got dash bezel for my car and realized that I need to either use the tablet in the lower resolution so that the display fits the double din size or I need to modify the bezel.

    Right now, I am working on building a docking station for the same - to connect usb devices (including usb gps) and other stuff.

    I keep getting weird ideas on how to place the tablet in place, like add few hinges and a lock on the bezel so that I could open it and take the tablet out and put that back in without removing everything. It would come in handy, I could, may be, set the trips, select the routes while inside the home and come back and plug it in the car and start navigation, it will be easy to do some maintenance like install and uninstall the software. Well you get the idea, I don't need to be sitting in the car all the time to fix things in carpc.

    Another idea I keep thinking of is somehow molding the surface pro or dell venue 11 docking station in bezel, so I can integrate the entire stuff in the car with the docking stating and the actual tablet can be plugged in and plugged out easily. Lets see how much time I get and which one I get on to.

    Rray - if you are planning to just get the display out of the tablet then, may be, you could consider pasting it over the bezel. It is very light weight, lean and nice looking. All the wires will go through the opening in bezel. And if this looks like a feasible solution that you might be able to go with the bigger screen.

    For drivers, we might need to check if the default Windows drivers would work on for the display. Let Google it some more.
