Show off your CarPC

Post by Protok »

As per title really, I need some inspiration.
List up specs if possible, ready made ones are also welcome (Kenwood, Alpine, etc, etc)

Quite good guys, any pictures of yours shinny?
I didn't know you had a CarPC.

My plan at the moment is to use the boot side and have it running from there with a DVD drive in the front with usb ports.

Anyone else?
There can't be only 2 people who have done a CarPC install, we have an entire section in the forum for it which is relatively empty...............

I don't have an install at the moment... that was an install in a single DIN stereo cage in my first car! (M-reg astra) :laughing

I'll see if I can dig out the pics - they'll be on an old PC tho :no:
