    The First UK CarPC Games !

    OK, I've hit on this idea - me and dave do quite a bit of geocaching which is like an outdoor game with portable GPS units, ( www.geocaching.com/faq )
    Was wondering if we combined a meet with a sort of GPS game for carPC's -it would involve a bit of puzzle solving, GPS nav + driving

    Anyone up for this? If so i'll see how exactly we'd work it and minimum system "specs"
    Think the sport could take off? lol

    Sounds like a laugh to me. Could also be useful for that Channel 5 thing you were on about.

    There needs to be something to make it Car PC specific - else anyone with sat nav in their '3-series' would be just as good, lol

    And I thought you were planning a multiplayer car PC fragfest at one of the meets.

    Everyone load Half-life on their Car PC, I've got a 16 port Hub in the boot at the moment, and an inverter to run it.

    How about this, a game that times your transit between various points on the freeway and periodically uploads it to a server that has a scoreboard. A bunch of y'all in england might use the M23 (or whatever you call it) to take the same stretch of road between South Gloucestire and the Bogtoggles burrough of London, and whoever has the fastest transit through there (as measured by GPS) wins. We could do the same in LA with certain stretches of the 405 or 10, for example.

    It's worth buying a transit just to house your carputer, you could run a mobile data centre service or (as I would prolly wanna do) have a load of PCs in the back just like the spy vans in the movies with a rotating satellite on the back lol
