    Smile I know nuuuuthing............

    Hi, folks,
    I'm new, and I don't even know enough to ask a proper question. I just bought a new Dodge truck and the first thing I want to do is install an aftermarket audio/video/navigation system. I really want the best I can possibly afford, so if you have recommendations, advice, warnings, whatever, please let me know. I'll try to understand.
    Thank you,

    Heck, I don't know. What do you use them for, diagnostics? I'm sure up for learning about them. Probably would want one.
    Thank you for asking.

    I'm willing to learn, and I'm not ignorant about regular computers, so fill me in, at least with the most simple 'puter/GPS, .

    with a computer you can have gps, obdII(dyno), all the music you like in one place, you can go online and check your email while you in the driveway waiting for someone if you have wireless internet, Or anywhere there might be wireless internet. You can shut you friend/girlfriend/wife up with a movie (even though thats illegal)....a computer is the cheapest, most efficiant way to do any of that and you can access it all in one single place. mostly people have touchscreens so you dont really need a mouse or keyboard unless your still tweaking with it... Its really neat, check out the "show off your project" area and see what people have goin on.

    You may also want to check out the mp3car store for pre-built car computer systems. That is if you don't want to build it yourself

    If you dont' wan't a car pc, I would suggest you look into a pioneer Avic N 2 unit. Very nice for the things you listed. Now, if you wanna go the Car pC route, this is the right forum for you. You can surf gay porn, listen to all your copywright infringed music and use GPS to find your way from one end of the driveway to the other

    No seriously dude. Navigate the site, looki around. You'll be looking your next rock soon enough This stuff is seriously addicting. however, my best advice. take some time to cruise the site before posting. YOu'll learn a lot from the stickies, FAQs and posts around here.
    Its not the cards you're dealt, its how you play the hand!

    Okay now you know the potential of carputer and you want one in your new truck.
    Lesson 1:
    Start here and read: FAQ forum

    Lesson 2:
    Search corresponding forum for topic that you don't understand or not clear.

    Lesson 3:
    Lookup the Show Off forum to see installation idea, location, component.

    Lesson 4:
    Lookup the Fab forum to see how other fabricate their screen so you can do yours especially look for one that has similar dash as your car/truck.
