SBC with 3D for Topo USA?
Anyone run Topo USA http://www.delorme.com/topousa/ on their setup?
I am looking for a SBC (Single Board Computer) that would allow me to run Topo USA with its 3D mapping (OpenGL) at a 15 fps or more frame rate.
I do a lot of 4x4 trails here in Colorado and having a 3D map of the terain would help me navigate. The rough trails have me looking at a SBC. Hence so I have fewer items pluged in that can get bumped loose (add on graphics card etc).
I am looking for a cool running setup hence probably the slowest system that could do this.
I plan on installing Alcohol 120% so it can run 100% off the hard drive.
Anyone mess with Wine http://www.winehq.com/ in Linux with Topo USA? What is your boot time compared to WinXP?
My 4x4 is 24V but I have found some 24V DC to ATX power supplies. That should work out ok if the SBC has a ATX connector.
Attached picture is my 1974 Steyr Puch Pinzgauer with my father on top of Lions Back / Moab Utah As you can see I am trying to make it dust / water tight as possible hence the need for cool system. I may end up running a foam filter in front of a fan blowing into a small box of some type. Mabie even a small surplus ammo can. Kinda fits the decor. ha
