    Car Control

    Im new to carputers and looking to install a carputer in my new TC and was wondering what it would take or if its possible to have controls on the computer for things like the windows, locks, and starting the car. Ultimately I would like to link my iphone to it and control those functions and use my iphone as the remote to lock and unlock and for remote start.

    Yes, you can do this. There's a product out there that does it already from your iPhone.

    Also, there's a blog post on remote controlling your car up on the mp3car blog.

    Yeah ive seen that, more looking for an all in one system and would be nice to be able to control everything from a touchscreen on the dash as well as use my iphone as a keyless remote system.

    Don't know anything that will pass control between your iPhone and your car PC or some kind of touchscreen control.
