    What fields would you like to see?

    I'm working on a mod right now that will list all of the equipment you are running in your car for your CarPC.

    So far I have the following (not necessarially in this order):

    Motherboard
    Processor
    Memory
    Hard Drive #1
    Hard Drive #2
    PSU
    Screen
    Sound Card
    Satelite Radio
    WiFi
    EVDO
    Front End
    OBD-II
    Operating System (incl. modifications)
    GPS reciever and software
    Radio Tuner (AM/FM)
    Miscellaneous (phidgets/software/etc.)

    What else would you like to see?

    Motherboard chipset
    Radio Tuner (if any)
    Car audio hardware (headunit, amps, EQ, etc.)
    Other hardware (phidget boards, custom hardware, etc.)
    Internet connection (other than WiFi adapter like cellphone & provider)
    Other software besides frontend (MBM5, PhoCo, ECU tuning, etc.)
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    because I'm worried we will already have a long list, I'm going to leave this out. If you post your mobo, this can be easily found.

    Radio Tuner (if any)
    added

    Car audio hardware (headunit, amps, EQ, etc.)
    I think I'll save this for a second page if possible. Since this board focuses mostly on CarPCs, I'll start there. Once I have this part done, then I'll see if I can add a second page with this information.


    Other hardware (phidget boards, custom hardware, etc.)
    will add a miscellaneous field that's more than a single line.

    Internet connection (other than WiFi adapter like cellphone & provider)
    I have this under EVDO.

    Other software besides frontend (MBM5, PhoCo, ECU tuning, etc.)
    I'll mention this in the miscellaneous section!

    Thanks for the help guys!

    maybe not listing all the audio end, but more like a stock or aftermarket check box?

    ok - now I've added a drop down under my name - once you fill out the specs in the user CP, this drop down will show up - I have it set as a conditional...if you have something in the motherboard field then the pop-up will show up, if you don't have something in the motherboard field, then nothing will show up.

    Figured that the one spec that most anyone would fill out would be the mobo field...thoughts?

    also, I haven't listed off all of the fields in this drop down, else it would be wayyyyyy too long...

    keep in mind that I'm still working on all of this, so it's still going to change some

    once I've got this done, I'll look into adding another page, and how to do the check box (maybe if you have the box checked for aftermarket then it enables the aftermarket audio page?)

    Looks interesting, not sure about the colouring at the moment.






    Goes off to find said fields to fill in.

    Bah! Humbug.



    PS Red, now you're an admin, can you fix my custom title back to Confusion Master which I had before some previous forum upgrade?




    Pretty Please.
