    Nice work on the dash pod for the PC on yours I opted for the behind the seat trick, so I had plenty of room for other things I added later, like the TV tuner that I pit behind the screen

    Hey guys, I'm in Melbourne. My car PC is currently just a set of ridiculously ambitious ideas which will no doubt have to be toned down to more closely resemble reality when I begin the install Will be going into a widebody VIP Toyota Celsior (Lexus LS400), which arrives from Japan mid May, can't wait!

    oi oi oi

    Hi guys and girls,

    Don't know how I didn't find this thread before.

    I'm in country Victoria and built my basic carpooter from mostly bits posted from US. Second hand Viewpad 1000 touchscreen tablet with souped up ram (380mb woo hoo) and 80gb HD. usb to optical sony adapter, usually used for minidisc players, feeds an Audiobahn add51t surround sound decoder, feeds two 2x150W (no centre channel) and an 800w class D sub amp.

    It lives in a 1989 nissan GTR, and interfaces with the aftermarket full engine management computer (apexi powerFC).

    It should be 802.11b but it is ye olde pooter and a windows XP driver does not exist for the gemtek mini PCI wireless card. I'd update it with an a,b,g card and plug a gps antenna into the compact flash slot but I'm leaving for Seppo land in a month so I'll be buying an old lexus sedan and starting again anyway.

    I thoroughly recommend the little touch screens even if they are a bit underpowered processor and video wise. Having a dock that you can plug DC and all other peripherals into, on board power supply and battery life of over 5 hours makes things easy. Being able to take it out of the car is good too. Like a removable faceplate on a car cd player only more so.

    Best found on ebay, as long as you can talk the vendor into posting it to oz. just watch out for dodgy bastids like the bloke who didn't send me two spare docks that I was going to rip apart and play with.
