    By the way,
    Thank you all SO SO much for the help and time. I think I am going to go with a MOREX case with 60W DC power supply. Then I will purchase the Carnetix. Is there anything else that I will need? Howbout an ITPS? I don't need that correct?
    I am going to have in my system:

    VIA M10000
    256MB Ram
    2.5 inch Notebook HD (40gb)
    NO CDROM WHILE IN CAR
    USB GPS
    USB Keyboard
    USB Mouse
    USB Touch Screen
    USB Cellphone hookup

    Almost positive that 60W is going to be enough..

    That is correct. The P1260 has a startup/shutdown controller AND it survives cranking. It IS what the IPTS was supposed to be...

    Your system looks fine.

    You can get your P1260 from the MP3car.com store...

    With the Carnetix and morex I will be able to move the Carpc into my house to do work on it more easily then the opus, is this correct? Also, the Carnetix is also a shutdown controller as well, and it seems like I can specify delays, as well as USB power options.
    Thanks again

    Yes. The Morex and Travla cases come with an AC adapter that you can use when you bring your CarPC into the house. If you had the Opus permanently installed in the case you would need to buy some sort of AC/DC power supply to power the system when you brought it inside, or replace the Opus with an AC powered ATX PSU for indoor operation.
    and it seems like I can specify delays
    You can re-program the microprocessor to have different delays than come in the standard firmware. There is also a jumper selectable shutdown delay time, and a jumper selectable "boot delay" time. Plenty of flexibility.

    Ok,
    I am convined, a Carnetix is a much better option for me (more affordable as well for me). I thank you for all of the amazing help. I will see you all on the boards when I start to set everything up.
