Then I switch to this!!
My first ever install. I first started with one of those flip out TVs, but I hated it after a while. I hate when things don't look stock or when things just don't mount flush. So I slapped a 7" Lilliput in there. Got a small HP E-Vectra E-PC.
Specs: P3 1Ghz
40 GB hard drive
GPS: Streets & Trips 06
OS: Windows 2000 then switched to Windows XP, so I could get the voice feedback in MS S&T 2006
My head unit has aux inputs so I use that for my sound.
I tried the internet thing using my sprint phone and #777 but I never got it
I'm also using an inverter to power my PC.
Things to do: Find out a way to do automatic start/shutdown on ignition. Any help would be much appreciated.
Thanks so much MP3 for all the information. I learned a lot and hope to learn more in the future. Now for the pics!!! Let me know what you think!!!
Thank God for MP3!!!!!
Now the good stuff!
Nice! You need to get yourself a nice frontend to make it all nice and TS friendly. Look at RoadRunner or StreetDeck.
Civiputer: Dont have one anymore, but here is what is used to be!
I agree with Nameeri - use road runner... sweet setup though!
Duct tape and a Bandana for the win, b!shes!!!
Cost so far: Less than a grand ;]
Economy/Commuter cars + Computers = many entertained miles
See thats the thing, I don't have a touchscreen. I will be getting on soon though. For right now I use one of those power point pointers as a mouse. It's very small and works well with Window Media Player. If I ever have to type then I'll use the OSK. I tried RoadRunner, but I don't have a TS so I didn't really like it. Once I replace my my LCD with a touchscreen, the I'll install a front end!
looks good. personally, i think i would paint the screen bezel in a flat black because the silver stands out too much. looks like a nice fit though!

oh...and you need to drop your car
