    Started this project when I was in college. Lots of fun times in the Bradley University parking lot. So many people walking by,"What are you doing? I see you out here all the ..... Oh coooool !!!!!!".

    Polished it off in the past few months. 1 year start to finish. I was hesitant to say finish, because I will never be done!


    Highlights:
    Software:StreetDeck on XP SP3
    Optical: DVD-RW (center console)
    OBD: OBD-II Reader from ScanTool
    Display: Liliput EBY-701 LCD Touchscreen molded into dashboard (bondo ftw) ((powered off of computer PSU))
    GPS: US GlobalSat BU-353 Weather-proof GPS Receiver
    PSU: M2-ATX 160W Intelligent DC-DC PSU
    CPU: 2.? Ghz P4
    HDD: 80 GB on spinning platters
    Case: Huge (holding off on ITX until old yeller dies)

    Notes:
    LCD and USB hub powered off of car psu's 12v and 5v line respectively
    Computer causes horrible RFI on boot from hibernate. Possible case grounding problem, researching. Noticeable through 2-way radio.
