    Exclamation PC Cruiser

    Ok, Starting my New Project.
    Today I decided that I am buying a New 2006 PT Cruiser, and CarPutering it with a Mac Mini, Xenarc 7" touch screen, Vcom Voice Navagation that will work in conjunction with the Route 66 Program (RT 66 will show maps, Vcom will provide audio Directions) BT Phone Intergration, and God knows what else

    SEGgeek,

    I support you and all, but you need to follow the MacCar forum rules here...and that is no posting of projects here.

    Anything like this is suppose to go in the "Show off my project" or "Worklog" forums. I had moved your segway project in there before, and now doing it again.

    Thanks.

    OK, mac mini has arrived, I am starting to load it with programs.
    I was really impressed with the "dashboard" Widgets. Has anyone had any success in using that as a total interface?

    I found a RAID server hard drive case that is the perfect size for a mini (its a double din case) with room to mount the monitor is a swing out configuration.
    After I cut holes in, and do some prototyping I will take some pictures.

    Good choice with the element. PT cruisers are just highly modified neon's!

    Like I've been saying since they came out, "If only they were built on a Dakota frame...."


    Elements rock! I've been trying to figure out where I want to install a carputer in mine.
    Failure is not an option....



    It's installed by default on every version of Windows.
