I will look into that. I tend to become very biased on products. So since I am use to IIS, I will not touch the others unless the first one does something I do not like. Look how long I held onto the Car PC being the better choice. Then Centrafuse ****ed me off, and the creators closed their doors. I tried Android and now it powers my install along with Windows 7. Cant use Win 8, because god knows Win 8 is equivalent to Vista, which was equivalent to Millenium. Why MS does that one good, one bad OS stuff is beyond me.

They claim to be working on a new business version that will allow several clients to connect and view a desktop, but there is no ETA on that.

Going to start taking things out the truck and do better measurements.
in what way do you need the tablets to interact with the PC desktop? if it's just video & audio, then why not just run a DLNA server on the PC and a capable player on the tablets...
The tablets can already access the server. I want a kind of shared mode. So everyone sees the same thing, at the same time, and control it all together. A shared mode. When they want to do their own thing, they simply close the browser or app and use the tablet as normal.
Just read through this ENTIRE thread!!! Good work and great info so far!
With your new build plans, what are you doing with the MK808, and have you figured out the touchscreen option yet? I am fully convinced that I want to run an Android car solution myself. I would really like to use the MK808 or similar if we could just get a USB touchscreen to work with it! Otherwise, I need to find a tablet that supports USB Host, so that I can still run a bunch of USB peripherals. Following up on a link posted by someone earlier, I came across this capacitive touchscreen that's currently only available on pre-order. http://www.chalk-elec.com/?p=1712
I have also been trying to find a tablet solution. Most tablets are now supporting USB Host Mode. But at the same time, many have dropped using a separate charging port. Which means, in the car, when you are trying to use USB host mode, you cannot also charge through the USB port. This can be an issue. At least the MK808s can have a charge AND use host mode at the same time. But still waiting for touchscreen.
i used a motorola Xoom even though it's an older tablet just for that reason (has separate usb and charging connectors).
There are some products out there that will do this but realize they are generally used for businesses and will cost some money.
The VNC route is likely the best route but will be dependent on your network speed. Just have to find a server that will allow more than one connection to it.
Another option you might be able to take advantage of is Intel's WiDi or similar technology that will allow you to broadcast a screen to multiple devices.
Hey HiJackZ, did you give up? Thread seems pretty quiet.
