    One of the different thing I noticed:
    On my home PC, after the installation, I hit the Launch RRConfig
    It smoothly run to the Configuration Windows

    However, the same installation file, after on my Car PC, and Samsung Q1, I run the launch RRConfig, it pop up a windows require me to locate the Roadrunner.msi setup package to continue. And I stuck at there

    It is counter-intuitive to me when I did the same thing on just two different computer, and get different results of the setup.

    Happy Happy!
    I finally find out the reason why it does not work on my Car PC and UMPC but work on my home PC.
    It is hard to notice that, so I think my case will be helpful for any newbie to Road Runner Install
    Recently, my little brother feel annoyed with the Anti-Virus on my Home PC, I am using on my 3 computer the same AV software NOD32. He was just mad at the NOD32 and uninstalled it. I just forgot about it.
    On my Car PC, and UMPC NOD32 still works, but I got some bothering notice that it somehow block the Roadrunner because of suspicious reasons.
    It is not coincident, then I uninstalled both on my Car PC and UMPC, now it works
    Problem with the installation and AV software.

    I am very happy to get help from a lot of members here, you guys are so nice. I am still a newbie in a new land. So, please help me in future if I have questions

    Sincerely,
    Duy Nguyen

    Some AV programs erroneously classify RR as a virus.
    Pico-ITX / XP Home with EWF-HORM / RR v12/02/2009 / Winamp v5.13 / RRMedia v1.2.2

    First, I have an air-vent mount for the Samsung Q1 stays stably in my Toyota Corolla in front of me about 1.5 feet.
    Second, I found a very cheap Samsung Q1 Car charger works well with the cigarette lighter in my car. Otherwise, I can buy some AC/DC Universal charger from Igo, Targus, Kensington
    Third, certainly I need a GPS receiver, I am using Globalsat Bluetooth GPS recevier to work with Iguidance V.4 or Copilot Live 10 ( I like both a lot compared to MS Streets&Strips or Delorme )
    For the audio. There are two choices I can make:
    I have my car Radio/CD player which built-in aux input. Then obviously I can use a regular audio jack to connect from the headphone output on my Q1 to the aux input. And sound will come out from car speaker.
    Since Samsung Q1 or any other UMPC build with Bluetooth capability. I can go out to buy a Bluetooth Audio receiver and hook them up with the circuit inside my dash for output on my car speaker. I did not try this way. My wild guess, you can research more on some Bluetooth System for car, or Bluetooth Speaker for car, I remembered that Motorola or Parriot have these things.
    For input device, I am very lazy even though the touch screen on Q1 is so easy to control. I use Gyration Air-Mouse, or Kensington Air-Mouse to control pointer at my hand motion without using any base. For keyboard, I use an USB 77 keys mini keyboard. I would like to buy Frogpad tiny keyboard can be used by one-hand control.
    A bluetooth headphone will be good to complete the set

    I hope that I can give some insight that I build on my car.
    If you want to know more about UMPC stuff, you could contact me directly. I could give you further information

    Long time ago, before I bought FM/CD player for my lovely car, I have only one very old FM receiver in the Corolla. It is unpleasant to hook up my 20gb Ipod to the FM receiver through a radio frequency transmitter. I experienced a lot of noise even though I placed the transmitter really near to the dash in hope that it would have strong signal.
    However, I don't want to give up my goal to connect Ipod to my car speakers. And I come up with Harman/Kardon Drive and Play. The central control have cable will help you connect directly to you internal wires to car speaker. If you use Ipod then it can directly output to the car speaker. If you have some devices other than Ipod, you can use the aux input on the central control to get sound on the speaker. The fidelity and quality of the system is awesome. Drive and Play also give you option of working wirelessly without hooking up any wires by transmitting FM signal. But differently to other transmitters on market which I had tried before, It give you very good and strong signal to your FM receiver. I can say that I experienced very less noise on Drive and Play system.
    So, there is a solution for you to hook your UMPC to Drive and Play to the car speaker. Do a little bit of research about it then. Good news, Harman/Kardon just released Drive and Play 2. That means you could buy the first edition of Drive and Play with cheaper price than I used to.

    Hope it helps
