    Microsoft already partners with Ford for their MyFordTouch system (which, apparently sucks).

    No, you don't need a DC-DC power supply.
    A DC-DC PSU is generally considered the best option for a number of reasons, but isn't absolutely necessary. An inverter would work, as well.

    Sunds like you might need to do some troubleshooting when it's in a state w/ the audio not working.
    It sounds like there might be a driver that didn't initialize properly.

    I have to ask why the hard drives would be USB instead of SATA or PATA.
    Internal drives would eliminate the need for two USB ports alone.
