    Talking Help - Is this possible?

    Could you please give me any clue on how to start goin about this?

    I want one touchscreen in the center console.
    No less than a 200GB HDD and 512MB RAM.
    The 'puter going under the passenger seat.
    A 3-D surround sound card.
    GPS.
    Bluetooth.
    WiFi.
    DVD Compatibility.

    And any other good "mod-cons" you can help me think of?

    I'm new to this so detail in the explanations would be much appreciated

    Thanks,

    mod-cons. Sorry local slang coming into play.

    Urm, added features. Such as touch screen instal of just a screen. Little additions. And I've checked the FAQ's. I just get confused reading them.

    Well what questions do you NEED answered?

    The "mods" of carputers are highly personal:

    Some use the ODBII interface for car diagnostics in real time
    Some use GPS
    Some use FM radio
    Some use wardrivers and WiFi
    Some use integrated radar detectors
    Some use solenoids to control various devices
    some use phidgets to control basically anything and everything you can think of...

    Touchscreen is a must (at least on the main center console)

    seems all the things you listed are basic when it comes to a carputer, and basically built into the OS and machine itself. Extra stuff like what I listed is highly personal and also based on you model of car...
