    not sure if it's going to be the 700TSV or the 700IDT
    The 700IDT isn't motorized. I have the one from mp3car. Haven't installed it in anything yet, but it seems really nice. BTW. OTT is a xenarc retailer. Now you can get these puppies locally!

    I was thinking along the lines of 1-2 GHz, 256-512 RAM
    Eden SP13000 with 512 megs of ram is the perfect platform in my opinion. I've gone through 3 boards and both 256 and 512 setups. This is by far the best setup. Handles the CF card setup well too(Some details for read only on a CF card such as no pagefile).

    I PM'd you about meeting up.

    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?

    I'm to old to just hang out anymore. Just finished a camping trip to Vancover and back and I was desperate to get a carputer up. So I'm presently running a laptop under the backseat of my Avalanche, and hacked together a mount for the lilliput screen. Used a belkin fm transmitter for audio but around Niagra Falls and Chicago, it was almost impossible to find a free radio channel to broadcast on.

    Next, I need to figure out how to integrate my screen into the dash and connect directly to my stereo unit.

    I figured it might be like that, those interested in carpcs might be a little older and I'll never run into them.

    I'm interested to see a carpc on a 7" and 8" just to see what the big difference is.

    I work in the west-end, Herzberg/Carling, live in the south-end, Walkley/Bank. Have you met any of the others guys that posted in this thread?

    I should be getting the start of my project this week, a 2.5" LCD and a rear-view camera. After that its a LCD TS and I'll use my laptop until I can build a dedicated carpc.

    Haven't met anyone. Just found this thread today. We'll have to meet at Tims on March Rd. sometime. I'm just down the street on Hines Rd.

    You'll be able to see a 7" in action (sort of).

    Sounds good, this is my car:

    If you see me at Timmies (every morning around 7am) stop me and say hi.

    I'm gonna stop by the Kanata cruise night (Hazeldean Mall) at 8:30 after my ball game. If any Ottawa people haven't been, its I think the best cruise night in Ottawa, great mix of new/old cars.
