I'm just getting into this carputer scene. Im lookin at
to use as my computer. I noticed that it has an external psu, so my question to you is how do I go about getting a startup/shutdown controller for it? I know there is laptop controllers out there but i wasn't sure if it word work the same way for a desktop.
My 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse GT:
"The Project That Never Ends"
more projects then time!
Led Skyline Tail Lights--100%
High Power Led Reverse Lights--100%
Led third brake light--100%
Led front turn signals--0%
Also, if you're buying a new computer, have you looked at the systems built specifically for a car, such as those in the mp3car store, and those at mo-co-so.com? They come with an intelligent startup/shutdown controller and power supply already.
Edit: Just noticed only some of the systems in the mp3car store come with a vehicle power supply. The others have it as an add-on option.
