Saab 9000 Aero CarPC project.
OK. I have me one Saab 9000 Aero (1995) whcih has a sony sound system installed, including (from the factory) a 4x 50w RMS amp under the drivers seat.
under the passengers seat, i plan on piling in the following:
- VIA Mini ITX w/ 1ghz C3 cpu
- Morex ProCase Mini-ITX 2600 black, (internal PSU takes a 12v feed from external source ie. regulated car supply - must be 5A capable)
- 2x 2.0m USB 2.0 cables male to female
- 512mb DDR RAM
- 8" or 7" touch screen
- USB 802.11g dongle for wireless
- 200Gb IDE HDD
- GPS mouse (already own)
the amp will allow me to have 4ch surround sound.
Any suggestions? I have a fair bit of computer hardware experience, and the same for cars, so i'm not a noob to computers or cars.
the USB cables are for raising the GPS mouse to a better position outside the car, and to give me a single USB port on the dash, next to the monitor.
