My In-Car PC
My current car PC consists of a MCS Enclosure fitted with a Jetway C7 2.0 GHz Mini ITX Motherboard with 1Gb of RAM and uses a 16Gb CF Card for a main OS drive. I also use a 32Gb USB Flashdrive to store music, maps and other necessary data.
I fitted an internal USB controlled HQCT Radio Tuner thatís controlled with CPCTuner software. This gives excellent AM/FM radio reception. Sound comes through the factory Patrol Speakers via a 560watt 4 Channel Amp.
The Monitor is a Lilliput 629GL-70NP/C/T fitted to a Bybyte LCD Frame to match the Patrols Dash Facia and give it the OEM look.
It runs a USB GPS Mouse, Wireless Internet and MCS-WRC Wireless Remote Control from a 4 port hub and a USB Slot Drive DVD/CD Burner Combination.
At this stage Iím not running a front end, but may in the future. Software consists of Freedrive, OziExplorer, GPS Gate and Visual GPSXP for Navigation. Winamp, VLC Media Player and CPCTuner for entertainment, NISTune for OBD monitoring and Freefone for Mobile Phone control.
A special thanks to Chris W. of Mobile Computing Solutions for his help and advice.
