    Okay well the first and main question is, What is the absolute limit that you want this setup to do.

    Examples:
    * Music
    * Movies
    * GPS
    * Engine Management
    * Security
    * Service Dockets (Carputer links to palm/laptop and prints receipts while onsite)
    * Driver profiles (self adjusting seats,mirrors,playlists and so on)
    * Dual Battery
    * Voice activated items (lights/doors n so on)
    * Wireless Network
    * CB Radio
    * External device control (Home security gates)
    * Auto Sync with home computer when detecting wireless
    * Sonar speed sensor, keeps same distance with car in front/behind
    * Fingerprint reader/access


    Just a few ideas to start with
    2004 Holden WL Caprice Auto GENIII
    Base System = Raspberry Pi
    Everything else is pending for now as switched from a Mini-ITX setup

    Hey guys, from Perth here.

    I've got most of the parts needed to start on my carPC project but I'm stuck on one thing:

    What are you guys using for GPS? I've tried Garmin Mobile PC but it won't even load up on any of my computers, Vista or XP. I didn't find any others that I could trial so I'm looking for advice on this first before I proceed because it's annoying me

    Thanks

    I'm in Brisbane. Haven't done my car PC yet, waiting for a few parts to arrive. I have a 2007 Toyota Camry Altise. The setup will be done so that it retains the stock look. I'll be starting my worklog soon.

    Hi fellow Aussies, I'm a carPC newby from country NSW, currently working on a budget(ish) setup to go in my Mitsubishi Triton (very much like the one Tritonasaurus has).

    I have all my major components assembled, and running on the desk, next step it to wire it all up with the Carnetix 2140 regulator in the ute.

    My current setup is;
    Dell Optiplex SX270 Pentium 4 2.8/40gig HDD/1GB RAM/CD-Rom
    Lilliput 7" touchscreen
    Carnetix CNX-P2140
    GPS receiver
    Centrafuse
    OziExplorer with Australia 250K & HEMA 4WD maps

    with these to be added later;
    USB Bluetooth
    USB Next-G wireless broadband
    OBDII reader with Tactrix cable

    all to go in this;


    I have found this site very informative so far, thanks to everyone who has contributed their knowledge and experience

    Cheers
    Holmesie
