this is very interesting, Im starting a carputer build my self, what is that VR software? how are you intergrating that and why does it appear as thought you have a stock head unit? did you just gut it and use the touch screen and hard wire into your system?
lol VR is voice recicnition, and you call your self a nerd?!?! :P nah i joke, but yeah i would love to have VR, that was one of the things i was gonna miss about my current deck that i have, i didnt wanna loose my VR. Idk about such a bulky mic though, but if it has no feedback, im def interested, allota car mics get allota feed back from the speakers and it drives the VR system nuts and anybody you talk to on the phone with.
I am sorry if I am posting this in error - I want to get more info about your power supply and closer pictures of it/how you wired it in. I scanned through this thread but didnt see anything about it. Imay have just missed it
Anyway, for speech-to-text and voice-rec, I use the Microsoft Speech SDK, which is free and very powerful. It works great! Easy to use in your own software. With that stereo mic, it works perfect, even when the windows are down and I'm blasting along the highway at 120km/h.
Who makes it...do you have a link. Thats a very easy way to do it. Better than an inverter safty wise...I have a couple laptops that are going to potential PC's for the van and I figure that would be the easiest route for my first PC.
There's now cloud-based LED software out there called SM Infinity that will control the content of the sign using your laptop, tablet or smart phone. I'm not sure if it works with your particular sign, but you can get it on iTunes or Google Play...
It sounds like it's basically just a dongle that attaches to the serial port of your LED sign and lets you control it from your web browser or phone. But this means that the dongle requires an internet connection, such as wifi or wired ethernet, and then you have to pay a service fee to this SM company. Why would anyone want to do that when they can currently program their sign for free?
