    There are many many many posts like this.

    first thing you will need is a carnetix 1900 which is what you will need to power your mini while it is in your car.
    Second you will need a screen. You can use the xenark or the liliput since these are the two most talked about models on this forum. There are others that may work, but just check to make sure that they have drivers for osx.
    third. you will need to determine what you want your carputer to do? Are you going to run it as a windows machine or an OSX machine?

    Let me know if you need any other help.
    Cant code cause I dont know how, but give me the paint bucket and my eraser and have at you!

    well for GPS what you will need is a "GPS Mouse" they are usally USB, but you can get them as Serial and then get a USB adapter.

    I am not sure how to use plugins with AMP. I normally just use AMP the way it is.

    If you want the "best" front end, you will need to run it as a windows machine. This way everything is incorporated, it is hard to go between programs in AMP.

    any other questions?

    Best for what? I don't know what your needs are.

    Personally I use Road Runner on my mini, maybe Centrafuse fits your needs better, or Streetdeck, etc.

    Wait a minute....Audi didn't make the A3 in 2002...

    jfwy, where did you install the mini in your audi? (but no, seriously, they didn't make it in 2002)

    Edit: Forgot this was a multinational board, my mistake
