Ottawa people, sweet!
I have just stumbled onto Car PCs and was incredibly worried about our cold weather. I'd love to meetup with some guys here and see your installs.
I have a 2003 C-class Sports Coupe and wanted to run a modded XBOX as my CarPc, yet after reading touch screen support I'd rather build a cheaper CarPc and just buy an XBox as a second video source.
I've measured my car and a 7" TS would fit, a 8" would fit with relocating the screen buttons, and a 10" would fit if I relocate my climate control and cut the console up. I would like to see some CarPcs running to determine how big a screen I would need - I don't really want to cutup my centre console.
I want a CarPc as a permanent solution year-round. I don't expect it to work in -40C, hell my car barely starts then, yet -20C would be a realistic goal.
Does anyone here hang out at the cruise nights? M&M on fri night?
