MSI Wind and DC->AC Power Inverter
I have a Jeep Wrangler right now which isn't the best platform for a carPC, but I'm going to be selling it soon and getting a GS300 (a little more suitable). My family owns a car audio shop so I can get double DIN head units for relatively cheap already, but ever since my bout with the semi-successful carputer I put in my old Ranger I've been wanting to try again. My goal is to make this cost effective, considering I could just buy a nav unit from our store.
This is my idea for now, but I still need to figure out how to make the computer start when I turn on the car.
