Half Brewed Idea for Car Project... Help?
I have a 2002 Explorer, and am deciding to engage in yet another car project :) I want to install a car-puter, using a laptop!
So far I have a Pioneer DEH-P5800MP Head Unit
I am going to order the following:

http://store.karpc.com/item-XENARC-7...-1-Din+In-Dash ( Xenarc 700IDT)
What I need to know is, wha do I need to buy to easily power my laptop, so it turns on with the truck (perferably out of standy mode) and goes back into standby once the truck is turned off. Also, what software is avaliable to me to install on the lappy? I want something with a nice frontend. I've considered using Windows XP + Microsoft Streets and Trips for the GPS software, amongest other things.
Any help would greatly be appreciated!:buddy:
