    Have tablets killed the use of CarPCs?

    I'm just sitting here with a dual core, 2GB laptop that I can rip to pieces and turn into a CarPC no problem.

    However, there's 7" eBay Android tablets everywhere all day long for 100 which is...

    I did it on our old PS2.

    The PSU inside the PS2 is a bunch of capacitors and regualators. You need two fixed regulators, a 12V and a 5V. You can use capacitors too if you wish.

    One problem I see with this is safety.

    In a house, if your laptop catches fire or something, usually a saftey device (breaker) in your house will flick off, with this, I can't see that happening.

    This happens on the laptop when plugged in at home. Removing the earth cable stops it.

    Well the touchscreen feature shouldn't have a limit. You can use loads of mice on one PC. I think there is something like 26 screens XP can handle at once. You need seperate graphics cards though.

    P4 is a laptop config.

    I would use a MicroATX but then it is the physical size of the thing. All the cards would stick up quite high. Would have to use USB cards I guess.

    I did however just see...

    Power range for a good CarPC?

    Well I think I'm going to go down the laptop route, although I will be fabricating a custom case for it, so I'm going to try and put the best cooling into it.

    But what sort of power am I looking...

    That PSU should be fine. Aslong as the PSU is mobile. DC-DC convertor, make sure it is ground well, ground it where the radio grounds.

    Will you be using software like Centrafuse?

    Nope. Well not cheaply or easily anyway. So something that would do it before, for 3K!

    Best thing to do would be use the whole laptop, or as ph7ryan said is eBay it. Then buy a flat pannel.

    Thanks for that! Only problem is, mines a MK3 and the R32 is MK4 and MK5. Unlikely to fit.
    Thanks for the thought though!

    OK thanks. I was planning on using a relay to the accesory line. I want the adapter to turn off while the car is starting, so since I'm getting rid of my stock radio, I'll take your advice, wire the...

    OK thanks!

    So that would go onto a relay that goes on an Ignition wire? So that it would turn off when the car is cranking?

    The ground near the radio ground? OK cool!

    Thanks!
