    I tested it a couple of times on my pc and it worked ok, but then I put it in the car, I was having issues with the volume so I didn't bother with it, plus the fact that iGuidance isn't native in it. I've been using RoadRunner, by far the best frontend, unless your a noob that doesn't wanna spent 5 mins setting it up.

    I haven't figured out why every noob loves epia so much. for the same price, sometimes less, you can have a much better system.

    Re: Carputer 101

    All of my carputer parts shipped out today and should be here by Mon. Oct. 16th.

    I have quite a project ahead of me due to space constraints.

    In the dash I'm going to have my 7" lilliput touchscreen, under that my Pioneer head unit, and under that my DVD-ROM/CD-RW combo drive and a small switch panel for LEDs, the computer, and various things. I will be relocating my climate controls from the dashboard to the head liner. I'm goign to make a custom fiberglass box to mount them to the roof right in the center of the front where you'de typically see the standard courtesy light/information display.

    The computer its self, a 1Ghz MiniITX M1000 motherboard with 512MB RAM and an 80GB hard drive with a DC-DC PSU will reside inside of my center console. From there all of the ports will be accessible and the 3'' qwerty keyboard will be stored there as well as my iPod cable and anything else I need.

    Wish me luck, and I'll be sure to take lots of pictures and post a complete worklog. This is going in a 1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue, a first I believe.

    I actually bought my epia in November of 05' for a Computer Maintenance school project. we were supose to build or should I say assemble our own computer. since I already knew how to do that I thought I would challenge myself a tad bit. so I gutted an xbox used my dremal to do some cutting. and placed the m10000 in there and a small 230watt psu and a dvd rom/burner/cdr/cdRW slotloaded drive and an 2.5 hdd. well I placed 2nd in the competition. only because the teacher was a deusche about my display science board. after the class was finished a friend told me about carputers. so I said well I have most of the parts so why not.

    but 1ghz is more than enough to run movies. music and gps. plus epia boards are small. I would get that new nano board or that even smalled than nano board but they are to darn expensive

    they're fine for most cases, like in your case, you use centrafuse so you fine. But people like me that use RoadRunner you're better off with a little bit more power. With the new flash skins, the epia boards suffer, plus they don't get the navtive resolution of a 7" widescreen.

    I'm "evaluating" Windows Xp Vista, and so far, I love it. But, the hardware in the truck wont be enough.
