I was drawn to this site because I'm in the market for a new car. I want a civic, with navigation, and was hoping for a nice ipod user interface to use with it. Unfortunately, I don't think the honda music link is what i expected, so I'm on the search for alternatives. Then I came across the car pc. I'm drooling at the possibilities of car PC, and what it ca offer, but I don't think I want to really start hacking away at a brand new car, for warranty reasons and whatnot...

With the introduction of new Ultra Mobile PC's i was wondering if anybody has experience just buying one of these Ultra Mobile PC's and using them? They seem a little less customizable, but quite intriguing none-the-less. Being able to have similar features of a car PC, including futher portability, and simple connections VIA optional cigarette lighter charger.

Most specifically, I want to know about Car2PC and a UMPC. Can I buy a UMPC and add a Car2PC pack and have functionality, while just dumping the UMPC software, and adding the carputer software?
