    Exclamation Mac mini and 15in monitor, need some ideas!!

    Ok everyone, im new here and am in the middle of a project right now. I wish i would have found this site before. I have a 2005 Dodge Ram and am in the middle of fabricating my 15in monitor into the dash. I have a mac mini and am still figuring out where would be the most unique and cool place to put it.

    I will post pics of my whole adventure. While i do this i am custom paitning and fiberglassing my entire interior. I am putting a modded xbox in the rear that will run my two headrest monitors.

    I am doing all of this myself and kinda learning as i go. Im pretty good with cars and computers so this isnt too hard, its alot of fun and exploring the arear of carputers.

    Here is where I need some help: Once I get everything installed and running, I want a sleek interface and a few solid features. Aside from the standard DVD and music functions etc, I want a good NAV system and TV tuner. I will be using the bluetooth from my phone to allow internet access so the passenger can do whatever while im driving or i can get emails and such. I w2ant to know what programs to run and what external GPS and Tv tuner I should be using.

    Any other random tips and newbie info would be sweet. Im really looking forward to this install and I hope you guys can help be a part of this.

    Also, Ill get some pictures up of my truck, its pretty custom, quad cab with shaved handles, sweet sound system, lowered, custom body parts, nitrous and alot more cool stuff.

    Thanks again for everyones help!

    thanks, i found those last night. I was bummed out because i thought i was the first. But im going to make mine crazy. the modded xbox and other stuff should be enough to set it apart. the painted interior 2 tone will look sweet also.
