Hello, first build, just getting started.
So I'm finally realizing a long dream I have had to build a Car PC. Well thanks to my work, I have an Intel DN2800MT mounted in a microATX chassis with a 32GB SSD. I have added Wi-Fi and bluetooth so far. System is a 1.8Ghz Dual core ATOM with 4GB of RAM.
No monitor yet, and I haven't started to install as I want all the pieces to the puzzle first, and thanks to a custody battle for my son, this will have to come slow. I plan to install this in my 01 Mercury cougar within the next year. A few questions I have though...
1.) What is the best FREE Front end to use?
2.) What kind of FM tuner should I get? I want it to integrate internal as this will replace my cars audio system altogether.
3.) Best 8" touchscreen that will have good day/night resolution and visibility
4.) Since this board s already set-up to use a 12V ac adapter, Power should be easy, but what are my options for a shutdown controller?
Sorry, I have a lot of problems getting on the site most days, and I try to search and look through. I find users personal opinions easier to take though.
