Okay well the first and main question is, What is the absolute limit that you want this setup to do.
* Engine Management
* 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
1998 VS III Statesman

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

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
OziExplorer with Australia 250K & HEMA 4WD maps
with these to be added later;
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
