Newbie ... Set the scene
If you check out http://community.webshots.com/user/pjbrennan under "Car Computer", you can see my attempts at fitting something usable into my 4WD.
The Gateway worked fine and the Fujitsu is still being tested ... but the HDD does not like being upside down, not being subjected to the knocks/bumps from 4WDing.
The main use is for street level mapping when hooked up to the GPS (via a USB/Serial converter). I also want to be able to play DVD's to keep the kids quiet.
I am experimenting with the Dell Optiplex and have a 14" screen, but nowhere to locate it yet ?
I also have "pinhole" cameras setup front and rear that I originally had hooked up to the TV you can see.
