I have been interested and invested lots of time in finding the right computer system, screen, and what to do. I need questions answered because this is where people actually installed, tested, and help on all the stuff I want in my car..here we go
BG. I just bought a honda civic 2005 4 door coupe. I want a car-computer, moderate that plays music, divx, and tv and whatever else that is good to have
My question is
1)Do I have a 1 din slot to fit that motorized lilliput touch screen or does a modification need to be done to fit it. My honda civic if you know has a radio then a blank area right under it with a fold out door and seems can be pulled out because of this border surrounding both radio and blank area.
2)I want to watch Tv but not like cable tv, just basic channnels 1-13 atleast when i travel from town to twon. Is it possible to have atv card installed in the mini pc where is I can watch tv the monitor.
3)What do you recommend for screen? I heard the SVGA is better and can I use those motoriazed fold out (dvd, nav, tv, LCD)instead of VGA if possible to still use with the compuetr because in the end I want Winxp working in the car.
4)If I bought all the components I need...car-computer,-motorzied screen and anything else, how much would a proffesional charge because I am not a car person and don't want to not just f up the eqiupment but the car itself
5) WHere is the best place to put the computer in the car or my car(honda civic 2005) i heard Ideas, trunk, under seat..best place where least vibration because thats the main concern. I did on this site see someone place there car-computer in an bom-box covering in a custom way so that looked good.
6)anything else I missed
in the end I want to be comfortble purchasing and knowing it will all work out.
I might do all the bying aorund winter time so thats why I am doing the research now. Thanks for anyone who can help me on my car-computer journey...
