    My HP Pavilion N5190 / F2025A Laptop Carputer Project

    I've done as much searching as I have had time to do this morning, and I just have to come out and ask it. I have a HP Pavilion N5190 Laptop, and the HP F2025A Port Replicator (picture attached) . I was wondering if there were some type of power supply that I could plug my AC adapter into (not an inverter) that works like a Power Supply that folks use for their carputers? If not, anyone have a better suggestion?

    well what kinda of power output is your AC adapter? it normaly says it right on the big heavey block. just get a DC/DC with the same specs. make sure to have the same or more amps tho. if you get less amps it will fry

    Well, I got a good mouse: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...tem=5100707770



    I got the Deluo GPS receiver yesterday: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...MEWA%3AIT&rd=1

    and tested out my GPS setup last night. I put the Deluo on top of my laptop, and walked around my apartment complex, and it works great!!!! I guess next I will try out the routing (point to point that is voice guided!). Now all I really need for my setup is a good vga/lcd screen. I already have 3 RCA screens in my car for my current DVD setup, but the quality of the picture would be **** if I used it with my carputer!
