    pics aren't working

    If it's going to be in the boot you are going to need a long VGA extension cable, and long USB cable for the touchscreen part of it.

    Ok, I have done a litlle more research on exactly what I want.

    As I said before, i would like to use the puter for MP3 playback, GPS, and for the on-board computer also.

    I have actually picked out a computer and would like to know what u guys think.

    • Ampie Case
    • Win XP Home as OS
    • Xenerac 700TSV so I can just put it on dash since I really have no other place to put it
    • SB Audigy ZS so I can use it for 5.1 Surround
    • M1-ATX as PSU - i read this is very good PSU
    • USB Bluetooth for PDA and phone connection
    • EPIA MII12000 motherboard - says only one I can use for Audigy card I have
    • 40 GB HD - good enough for me
    • DVD/CD-RW Drive - Play DVD's I guess
    • 512 PC2100 RAM - everyone in here says thats the lowest to go

    Thats about it for Computer. My other USB Port will be used to connect a 4-port USB hub so I can connect my GPS and other crap since motherboard only comes with 2 ports.

    Im still not sure if to put it in my trunk or maybe inside my Glove box (very huge Glovebox). I was pulling more towards the Glove box so it uses shorted wires.

    The only thing I am still confused about, even after reading, is how to connect the AMPS and all the other audio crap to puter so it intergrates with each other.

    Also, I have not researched this but how would you go about adding the on-board computer in your car to the carputer? Is it just a simple wire from the connection on your on-board computer to carputer and then some software?

    Last, after seeing the list of stuff i want to get, is there anything I am still missing?

    the amps would be easy, just use a 1/8 inch to rca wire/converter and run that to your amps. This may make it so that you have to use more/upgrade your current amps though. I dont know how you could intigrate it very easily with a stock head unit, if its even possible.

    ust throw on a wintv/fm usb thingy, and watch tv/fm radio in your car, use the dvd to play cd's and forget about your stock head unit, or remove it.

    use the glovebox if possible for the carputer, and for the hdd/cd/dvd, use laptop parts so that they wont skip(as easily at least) and have larger buffers on them. you can find slim line slot load, and 2.5" hdd adaptars fairly easily.
    Progress,.... that is what I keep forgetting ;)
