    FMode,

    The firmware will be USB flashable. So, we can flash the firmware if it's necessary. Yes, the PC could be triggered by a 12v pulse. Maybe if the IGN line doesn't go high after 60seconds or so, the PC then shuts down (if you were to unlock the doors, but not start the car).

    as (90%? of) the car-pc community have an extra amplifier powering their speakers - they have to install a cheap USB Audio Stick at the back of your unit - (I would recommend this instead of running an analog audio line through the car).
    For those without amp they would use backward (outputing PC audio to your unit)...
    I would call this acceptable but not nice :/
    Whats wrong with a PCM290x ? It seems that the extra audio mix/switching section cant be avoided in any case.
    (analog-video switching is IMHO unnessesary crap invented by stupid manufacturers...)
    I'm confused on what you mean. Please explain more.

    - Brett

    If the model with onboard Nano was powerfull enough I would go with this, but if not I would use a VoomPC also, and would be looking at digital in as my preferred connection?

    You mean digital in for video? Or the audio?

    Audio with SPDIF....

    I thought that was what you meant earlier....maybe I'm confused!

    Just found this thread and want to through out the following question:

    Is there anyone like me that would appreciate if this design was easy to build into the car OEM style?

    When I said no digital in I was actually referring to the USB part. I think I will skip that since I have yet to find a good solution for it. This means there might still be SPDIF inputs and outputs.

    From the way Brett has described the progress and the CAD pics he has posted, I think he plans on keeping the design simple and OEM looking.

    If you own a Mitsubishi you can definitely interface with the car's ECU. Simply purchase a tactrix cable and run Evoscan to have real time logging of all parameters measured by the ECU. The same cable also works for subarus and is USB!! Also allows you to read and reset ODB error codes.

    I just purchased this bracket
    http://www.hondapilot.org/forums/sho...+dash+double+d
    for my Honda Pilot in anticipation of this double-din VGA touchscreen. I will need to trim 1/8" off of each side to accomodate the dimensions of the touchscreen. For someone who is not very mechanically inclined how is the best way to increase the opening without much danger of messing it up?

    thanks,
    Murray
