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?
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).
I'm confused on what you mean. Please explain more.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...)
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?
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
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?
