    My slow go at a basic Car PC for my Subaru

    My needs are simple and so is my brain so this isn't a complicated build.

    Intel Atom NUC, DC-DC USB PSU, MoCoSo transflective/bonded LCD and a Sirius tuner. Not bothering with phone as it's more trouble than it's worth and I'd rather not carry on conversations while I drive.

    Building a simple skin in RR to make this work. So far have Sirius mostly working, music mostly not working and Garmin seems to be sorted out.

    In my vehicle the oem phone/bluetooth drops an overlay over the screen if a call comes through and mutes the audio so, other than a phone dialler anything extra seems unnecessary.

    So I do like your simple skin approach. It looks good too.

    I have no Bluetooth at all in my car. Bought it before Bluetooth was much of a thing. Hell, I still had a clamshell feature phone with no camera back then.

    Thanks for the comments.

    Updated the skin...

    Added a few little things and a night skin. Oddly I think the photos of the night skin displayed look better than the skin displayed on the screen as the camera's flash illuminates the transflective screen.
