I need some help with how I might go about installing this computer: http://www.oqo.com/hardware/video/
It is very small and right now my stereo is out of my car and Im tired of seeing nothing but wires and thought it would be interesting if I could install this. What wires or adapters would I need to do this?
PS: Im a newbie!

Wow your installing a OQO into your car. First off, you must got some serious cash. What type of car do you have? Your installation might be pretty easy because it's an all-in-one. Is the OQO more like an laptop or a desktop? I would do a for wiring for laptops and start from there.
First off you need to work out how to get audio to your speakers either by hooking directly to the amp or working out something with the old headunit.
Second you need the docking cable that supplies DC power to the unit and hook that up through the cars power system.
Then all you have to do get it to stay still in the position you want and your done

Thanks for the advice. Its a 2005 Corolla.. I don't know how to describe the OQO or how I would actually go about it.. I read something in the FAQ.. and it was talking about hooking up your sound card to the amp. by using RCA cords.. I thought this would work easy if i just pluged one end into the OQO (the headphone slot that out puts the music) and on the other end, into the amp.. But I found out my amp doesn't have any spots for RCA cords to go into. And to be honest, I dont know if it's the amp. because it came with the car, I didn't buy one.. So I don't really know where to start.. Or just give up and go somewhere and have someone install it.
If its not to late I would highly discourage the purchase of the OQO, I actually had started the "first and only" all-inclusive list of handtop and tablet PCs, but realized it was just too big to do at the time lol. Too many models going by seperate names etc... anyway I do have an idea what I am talking about.
General concensus, the Crusoe is a terrible processor. If you really want to get an all-in-one to plug and play in the car, look at importing a Sony U-70 or 80 (different models). Little more expensive IIRC (maybe not the lower models), but hell if its worth doing do it right!

Haha, its too late. I got it as a gift, that I didn't ask for. So I guess im okay with it, just a simple, small, compact computer that I never use, so I thought of the idea of using the mp3's and the computer and put it to use by installing it in my car since my last stereo stoped working
Your stereo stopped working in a 2005 Corolla? Why didn't you take it in for warranty service?Originally Posted by proceedapathy
