    Thanks for the suggestion, but a few things you should note:

    You are commenting on a Car PC I built 6 years ago. The Car PC is long gone, and so is the car.

    I realize you work for the company, but that's got to be one of the worst put-together product pages I've ever seen. There's no information whatsoever on what the product does or what it costs. ...

    I am a nerd and to me VR is Virtual Reality, the failed 90's tech that was all the rage and not all that good. :-)

    Anyway, for speech-to-text and voice-rec, I use the Microsoft Speech SDK, which...

    Hi, Sorry, what is VR software? All of the software in my car PC is my own creation, with the exception of iNav iGuidance for the maps/gps.

    Wake-on-LAN is a data packet, not just connecting two wires together. It can't be done with a relay. You might be able to do it with a microcontroller, such as an Arduino with Ethernet port, but I...

    I had the same problem. The only way I found to fix it was to power down and power back up the screen.

    The "solution" is to ditch the awful screen!!

    I did. I bought a nice built-in Lilliput screen with transflective, and a decent Pioneer deck for the audio. It looks great and sounds great :)

    Hi,

    There is an option to make it not automatically open when it turns on, but I don't think it will stay out if turned off. I never did try it.

    Wow, so true. Every time I call, I get some sullen guy who sounds like I just interrupted his Solitaire. He helps me, but it feels like I'm keeping him from something more important and he just wants...

    Wow, I don't think I've spent that much on my home automation setup, and it probably does way more than Vantage does, www.avbrand.com/home

    Thanks!

    Hi Funkmobile,

    I'm glad you liked it. Xenarc have exchanged my screen and are sending it back, so I will give it a try when it arrives. Maybe they've fixed some of the issues. But I wanted to...

    Hey Smelly,

    I suggest you try them -- but even if they don't work, you can take the steps I took to make your own Intel drivers. :)

    Actually, the one I got is about 2.5 DIN, which is a bit too big to fit comfortably. So I've been trying to figure a way to make it fit.

    Hi,

    I like the Lilliput. It's very crisp and boots up immediately, and doesn't screw around when it comes to the touchscreen. The only problem I've been having is trying to get it mounted into my...

    Hiya,

    No, there's really no harm in trying. It'll either work, or it won't. Just make sure you have a way to get back into the PC to roll back the driver, such as via VNC or Remote Desktop.
