Almost to the build stage any suggestions
Ok hopefully I wonít Sound like I'm stupid.
Here it goes, I have been looking all over the internet to find all the information about making a car pc, and I think I have figured out what Iím going to use. Iím posting this to hear if anyone has suggestions on how to save a little money or possible ways to save time and aggravation.
The car is a 2004 Nissan 350Z (before anyone says hey you have money stop complaining. I saved money for 10 years to have the car of my dreams Iím not rich)
The main components to the putter are going to be parts I have around, now I plan on making an enclosure for it at some point till then it will be in a normal ATX case in the trunk area. They are all full size components so Iím a little worried about heat. I have plenty of fans to implement in the set up but then I fear I may have to worry about noise if I need more than 2 fans. So has anyone had problems with heat in this type of setup?
Screen will be a lilliput. There is a location in the dash that hides itself where the factory GPS went (If you got the factory GPS, I didnít so that area is a storage pocket with a door) I just have to figure out how to fab that screen in that location. Any Suggestions?
I have been looking for software for this set up. I will use media car for the GUI but as far as a GPS software I have looked into destinator 3 and mappoint both for the USA. DAM there allot more expensive than I was expecting. Are there any sites you can get maps I have a copy of destination 2 but no maps.
GPS receiver. Can someone give a suggestion for a good USB type?
There it is. If I have overlooked any aspects or you have suggestions please feel free to help.
