    I used Car DC/AC Invertor 12V DC to 110V AC (100 Watts) to power the system.

    It doens't go to standly mode when I turn the car off. May be I should work on it.

    I have been thinking about using one of those computers. How do you have yours installed? How do you have it powered? Does it go into standby mode when you turn your car off? If not then how long does it take to boot up into Windows?

    I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.

    Yes, certain times of the day there is a problem with the glare. Not enough to make it unreadable, but not like it looks at night time either. If I had to put a % on it, I'd say the glare bothers me 5% of the time. The other 95% is fine.

    Other than the glare issue, visability is great. Love the location of the monitor. Easy to see, doesn't take your eyes off the road too much. I think the only better location would be a heads up display.

    I am thinking of moving the monitor to upper din slot.
    However, it will block the A/C air-flow.
    Also, i have to find a mounting kit to mount the monitor......>_<

    Why not put it in the lower DIN? that way it wouldn't affect the a/c vents.
