    roll down the windows and enjoy it how they used to.

    actually, i have this accounted for already-- i maintain a secondary input into my amps to provide a workaround in the case of a carpc issue..

    And headunits break down as well....... especially the higher end GPS ones they seem to have more issues then the basic ones.

    A cheap knock-off from China maybe! In the F150 (which i totaled) i ran the computer through the AUX input of a Pioneer AVIC-D3 which kept running while i replaced the computer's HDD, RAM, and while i reinstalled a corrupt OS.

    Granted, the Nav units today maybe more prone to malfunction due to they sophistication but it wouldn't make sense to have a high-end HU AND a computer. All you need is a good single din unit with AUX input. Those are even more reliable.

    I've seen plenty of HU's fail when I was an installer. It's not an every day thing of course. What you talk about a lot of that could be prevented. Generally if you get the CarPC functioning good and use an SSD that isn't prone to damage from vibration it should run solid for a long time. Not to say things can't go wrong. I don't have space for a single din and a screen nor do I want to go that route. If it came down to it I could easily run a temporary source or just do without for a day or so to fix something.

    I rarely ever have computer issues and we have something like 8 computers in the house.... I always find it strange when people complain of so many issues but I guess I'm just lucky?

    i believe facebook games/apps, and online games(not network games, but ones where you need to go to a website to play) are the major culprit-- i have 3 pc's, and keep a 4th for the rest of the family.. my 3 only break down when i screw something up("let me try this... uh-oh.."). the 4th-- which gets used for facebook/online games could get redone every week just to stay fast..
