    DIY all-in-one

    now, i haven't actually seen the bybyte double-din case in person, but the igepv2 board is so small (think smaller than the beagleboard) that you could probably fit it, a psu, scantool and maybe the boomzbox hardware inside a single all-in-one unit.

    I don't know what I'd ask for in a grant, but this is something that provided enough documentation, possibly a lot of form members would be excited in trying out. The only thing that's really missing from this setup is the amp. Weren't there some forum members working on that?

    The biggest part to get is probably the lcd, which must be hdmi/dvi. I think there is a lilliput and a xenarc that have this.

    If I were to get this innovation grant, I'd be happy to document how to configure the hardware and software so that others can follow and do the same.

    Well you have my attention..although, I don't really have final call on approving these, the mods do.

    It would be very cool to come up with a DIY device and perhaps we could sell the parts.

    Can you provide more detail on 1) the total amount of the grant and 2) what you would purchase with the grant and 3) what the end product would be? a build of materials and an explanation on how to build the unit? (mp3Car could make a video here in house on how to do it by the way, if you created the documentation)

    1) $234 per the price of: http://store.mp3car.com/Lilliput_629..._p/mon-057.htm
    or
    $179 for the boomzbox: http://store.mp3car.com/Mp3Car_Boomz..._p/com-109.htm

    2) I would be providing the igepv2 board, the bybyte case, the dc power supply and whatever else that #1 doesn't cover (either the screen or the boomzbox).

    3) the end product would be documentation on how to create an all-in-one low-powered in-dash unit that could do hd radio, and all the other carpc stuff and have the ability to stay on for long periods of time and not kill your battery.

    I like the sounds of this - mods? What are your thoughts, questions?

    I 100% agree! This would be a very cool DIY project and having a set of instructions for how to do it would be awesome.

    You've got my vote for an innovation grant!

    I have a Scantool bluetooth that mp3car supplied. Would that work? Not sure if it has the proper Linux drivers or not...

    I wanted to see if I could get with vitality to get something smaller. I know he has a really small embedded obdlink chip. If that won't work, maybe a normal scantool like yours would work if I just gut the casing...

    I would really recommend planning out exactly what hardware is going in there and how it will all get connected before you decide how much to ask for or start purchasing components. That said, once the plan is in place it has my vote too.
