Making a cheap Carputer, LCD mounting confusion.
I'm new to the forums and I would like to build a cheap Carputer for my 2000 VW Passat. I've been looking at screens and I'm curious as to how people mount them. There is a DIN mount version on digitalww.com and that would be awesome but I would like to use the TM 700VGA screen instead. Is it possible to mount it without drilling holes? Does the LCD stand attach inside the empty DIN spot?
What exactly is the "Automotive Bracket for easy installation and stand"?
I'd like to use a keyboard mounted on the sun visor to save money on a touch screen. How would you mount this on?
I plan on using MapPoint 2004 with AGPS for navigation, would that be compatible with the front end programs available? (Media engine, etc)
I think I'm going to use the Opus power supply, it's expensive but I think the features make up for it. Unless someone has a better suggestion. I saw some threads mentioning a UPS and I have a small ~300VA or so one...Can I get auto standby/hibernate easily without the Opus when I shut down the car?
I have a lot to learn so sorry about the large number of questions. I'd be really grateful if someone could help a newbie out here. Thanks :) :)
