CarPC in 93 Mercury Sable
I have finally decided to put a 'puter in my car. I don't want to do anything permanent to the car (not that I care about it much), I just don't want to waste anymore money on this thing on anything permanent.
As of right now, this is the hardware that I have and plan to use.
1. Dell Latitude L400 (PIII 700MHz-M, 256MB SDRAM, 40GB HD, Port Replicator, External 8X DVD & Floppy)
2. Deluo GPS Mouse (Thanks Chita79)
As of right now, that's all I have.
Right now, I'm looking for the best way to power it.
I have 3 options:
1. Auto/Air Adapter (Dell does not sell these for this model. It also has a proprietary connection on the back)
3. An option I don't know about (Any ideas?)
I'm also looking for a 7" VGA TC (Lilliput or Xenarc)
I will post pictures of exactly what I will be doing in the car for the screen and computer as soon as I get the car cleaned up so I don't embarass myself by it's messieness :lol:
For now, I'm still using my Clie for Navigation and my iPod 20GB 4th GEn for MP3s.
So, enough chatting. Click here to visit my project
By the way, feel free to sign my guesbook and rate my car
