    the kenwood is an indash touchscreen with dvd. the whole purpose of this carputer install is to gain visualization from playback and run gps in the near future. seeing as none of the headunits on the market are touching the winamp/windows media plugins as far as graphics it seems to be my only alternative. and a kenwood gps rings in at more than $1200.

    Sweet car man, damn nice headunit too! I don't mean to insult you or the car but I think the pc may let it down big time. I can only hope you hide it well in the boot! Keep up the good work tho and post more pics!!
