Turbocad's first setup was pretty ancient but probably not that ancient.
scmods "state county municipal offender data system", the on-board system used by the rollers (AKA: cops) in the original Blue Brothers. this utility told the cops to "arrest driver, impound vehicle" and thus initiated the multi-state car chase that wrecked the most cars in movie history.
But yeah, I remember the nav system. Haven't seen that movie in such a long time >.<
Also, who could forget the most famous carputer, even though it was driven by The hoff... KITT. That was 1982, no? I don't know if actually had an actual computer in there though, or if it was just a bunch of blinky lights and an english guy off-site with a radio...
Whats wrong with watching adult entertainment in the car? My car can connect to my media center at home and i have access to over 200 adult movies. Mind you I have never actually done it because that would make me a pervert :peep:.
Can you really use movies as examples of Car PCs though? They were not actual working models. I think Turbo Cad does hold the record, but who know the world is huge.
I tried to Google the oldest car pc install and various other combos and nothing really seems to come up. So I would have to say the oldest CarPC install is most likely Milatary vehicles?
I guess it depends on your definition of "car PC" I'm sure Nasa put some form of ginormous calculator to run its radar trucks in the 60s... and then there's the Soviet Missile launchers that had computational equipment on them even earlier...
Nobody thought of playing pong on a TRS80 while cruising down the road back then I guess...
mine may have been one of the first windows based desktop pc installs back in 95-96, but hardly the first computer install. wish there was an mp3car.com back then,but then again, back then I don't think I even knew what an mp3 was :p
