    yeah to each his own, I think a 100 is nothing compare to the time u save. Its been over six moths and no problems so 100 at 6 moths is like 50 some cents a day, thats pretty cheap if u ask me.

    Sorry, bembowe for the off topic post.

    Hmmm, I tried that on mine and it does start a LOT quicker of course (5-6 sec) but the one thing I did not like is that It does not turn off the CPU fan witch means that the CPU is running.... Being in Florida, can you imagine the heat problems from that scenario?

    I highly modded the system error skin to include iguidance gps, file selection and a few other tweaks. I can send you the skin if u want.

    I love how that skin looks in our tCs... very nice... I am looking for a good front end/skin and I think this is a winner! (By the day, Don Omar!!! Good job on the music!)

    as soon as I get money for my amps/subs, I will start installing my carpc in my tc soooo.. you'll get some questions most likely if that's ok...

    lol, thanks for the compliment. yeah the first time i saw that skin too i was sold. I feel like the tc was made to install car pc very easily. Apart from fabricating the screen, the installation was pretty smooth.
    but feel free to ask any questions men
