Yes.Was it the fun of creating something custom and the satisfaction of saying i built that?
I wouldn't say that, but the computer can have all the functionality I could ever need or want.Are there features that you needed/wanted that were not available in a Headunit?
No.Was it cost motivated?
Because I'm just that sort of geek.Any other reasons?
A legitimate concern!My main concern with a carputer is burning my car to the ground.
Really, though. As long as you approach a vehicle install with the same logical troubleshooting steps, you should have minimal problems.
Show me a headunit on the market that can control actuators or a full-on air suspension.At this point the only feature i can think of that is not included with an aftermarket headunit is WiFi. Are their any others i am missing? I would love to hear peoples reason for building something so cool.
Can a headunit get internet access through your cellphone or sync up with your PDA?
Is there a make/model of headunit that will allow you to view those fresh photos of that event you're at? Better yet, will it allow you email those fresh photos to everyone who attended the event?
I know there's not a headunit that can play Half-Life....
There are more reasons to go wiith a carPC, to be cvertain. Let your imagination run wild. Anything your desktop PC can do, your vehicle PC can do.
