    This goes against the entire idea of car PCs. I think it's hilarious when I see pics of interiors with GPS, Apexi controller and whatnot stuck to the top of the dash or hanging from the windshield. That's not cool, it's ghetto. Simply having displays in your car doesn't make your **** cool. Making it look like it came that way IS.

    BTW: An I Pad in a car is LAME. Same with PSP, same with a laptop, same with an ITX board stuffed in your double din space behind a 7" display. People who do this stuff have no idea what automotive computing is all about.

    It goes against YOUR idea of in car computing. I heard the same arguments when I first got into carputers from the car audio and electronics guys. Ok so its not for you, but that dosent make it any less a viable solution for the people who want the feature set that this setup offers.

    Sounds like you need to open your closed mind and do some reading... realize what this hobby and community is really about.

    Almost as lame as powering your non-existent car pc using an inverter and not even having it auto-boot when you start the car.

    I'll agree that it's more of an "out of the box CarPC" idea than piecing together something, but it's still a PC-like-device, and it's in the car. It's like buying a G4 or whatever those things were. It's a pre-built ready made solution for those that want it.

    Clearly you have no idea what automotive computing is all about. An ITX board stuffed in a double din behind a 7" display was the natural evolution of the CarPC. I've been doing this hobby for almost 14 years now and have seen more than most, save the oldest members. I remember loads of setups running DOS and Cobra or MPXplay... yes that was automotive computing. I remember character LCDs all over the place... VFD was really where it was at. I don't think you've been in the hobby long enough...

    Now you come along saying that putting a full blown computer with a touch screen display in your ride isn't automotive computing... clearly your expertise shot a little low. This does however peak my interest. What, then, in your opinion is automotive computing all about?
