    1999 Chrysler 300M (in need of carPC guru's help)

    ***EDIT*** : Deleted Whole Post, As I Was Either Stupid Or Drunk When Posted it...

    K, im seriously thinking of getting a new car, so far i have the Dodge Magnum in my sights.

    i currently have alotta parts for pc stuff and am awaiting a call about a free USB WiFi.

    i have an idea for a custom install and need help deciding wether it would be worth it or not.

    if i was to get a new vehicle, would it be better to get a touchscreen motorized indash, or a 10.4 inch custom installed (would require tearing some dash apart and fiberglassin or fabricating a few parts)

    im planning on buying the M2-ATX (currently have an M1-ATX that i havnt had a chance to use)
    im also planning on buying a Via micro
    another thing im looking into is reviews on GPS recievers... i hear some really suck with their reception (any info on a good one that allows AUX antenna would be sweet)
    if i can find a good gps reciever with aux ant in then i will purchase that multi antenna in the shop ( http://www.mp3car.com/store/product_...roducts_id=148 )
    im going to use an old 80gb 3.5" hdd for now
    DvD-RW Drive
    Near the computer i will have a plug that will offer power for usb hdd's that i use inhome and plan on using on the go when in a hurry.
    besides teh touchscreen i will have a trackball mouse for when im not driving. also a full sized keyboard.
    im going to use WiFi to connect with my home Pc, Friends Pc's and to rape the free WiFi places while in the parking lot!

    if i have the computer on standby, how long till it turns off from the battery dropping voltage? ill be using dual Optima Yellow Tops.

    go with custom fab work. it'll make it look oem, though i'm not a huge fan (actually hate) large screens. if you ever take a long trip at night your eyes will start bleeding from the light of the screen

    depends on a lot of different factors, are you going to be playing music? how much current does your audio system consume, etc...
