    I had the car pc for two years, then sold the car. My new vehicle has the Ford Sync system in it. After living with that for a year, I prefer it 1000x to my old car pc. I think it is EXACTLY what a...

    By the way... multi-touch doesn't make much sense in the car. It's dangerous enough to be looking at the screen when driving, let alone trying to do some sort of multi finger gesture.

    The screen technology available to us is waaaaay behind the curve. Bright, transreflective screens with capacitive touch are everywhere in the mobile phone world, and have been for a while now. It...

    I've checked into this. It's a cool idea, but AFAICT there is no way to limit who connects to this wi-fi hotspot you create. Plus, you have to install a hacked OS on the phone.

    I got all the way...

    Those look so much clearer than the resistive panels. I can't wait.

    I'm mainly interested in display technology. Is anyone going to make a straight-from-the-factory transreflective display with a capacitive touchscreen? We've had them in phones for years.

    The Achilles heel of carpc front-ends is that they all rely on embedding other applications. I've yet to see one that isn't embedding something. CF embeds nav and music visualizations. SD embeds WMP...

    I liked Streetdeck and was considering purchasing it until godofcpu seemingly disappeared from view. See this thread. So, I purchased another front end instead.

    It would be nice to do another meetup. Perhaps if we schedule it far enough in advance we can get a good turnout. I'm thinking early March, when the weather turns for the better

    $700 will buy you a car pc and a monitor, if you are careful. You will need to focus on low power, low heat, rugged parts. The Intel Atom boards are a good bet, coupled with a laptop hard-drive and a...

    Very ambitious. I think it would look a whole lot better if you ditched the monitor housing and blended it into the dash seamlessly.
