Rough draft: Equipment list, total n00b
Ok, i was browsing the store, and I am starting to compile a list of stuff that I want to get to build the system. As of now the list includes:
1 x Ampie Car Computer Case
1 x VIA EPIA M10000 Mini-ITX Mainboard
1 x OPUS 120 watt DC-DC power Supply DCX3.120
1 x Lilliput 8" VGA Touch Screen TFT LCD Display
1 x Corsair 256 mb DDR 266
1 x 20 gb laptop hd
1 x Linksys USB wifi adapter
My list looks extremely short. Anything i am missing? Also is the product selection look good (motherboard and powersupply i have no idea about)
I dont want to play games on this system. I want it to play mp3s, browse the internet (when i am close to home or another hotspot), perhaps GPS navigation...
Some questions I have:
What GPS module do you recommend (usb under $100 preferably)?
What front end do you use (Frodoplayer or what)?
Any other advice? I have been building computers for a while, but now i want to move one to my (future)car...
