    I love RR but if the price isn't bad I'll jump over to CF so I can have better GPS integration.
    centrafuse will have different selections. there will be a basic, premium and platinum. platinum will have gps plus phone integration. premium will have just phone integration. I can't tell you specific stuff cause I am messaging from my phone. just goolgle Centrafuse and check out the website

    Re: Carputer 101

    well that was the 1st thing that worried me, but i havent had a problem yet, just make sure you try to keep your hdd as far away as possible from sub, like mine thats why i placed my in my dash(besides i had the space for it). But if you have a sick system like an mt i suggest,brace yourself, a capacitor just for the computer. cause voltagedrop will kill your computer. i am only recomending a cap cause thaat is a cheap bandade solution for your cpu. if you got the cash invest in HO alt(id recomed a alt regardless,since you pulling that kinda power)


    edit: thats why i recomend a 2.5hdd(laptop harddrive) they can withstand shocks much better

    I'm thinking of putting one in my car.

    M2-ATX
    VIA-EPIA 1000
    512mb ddr
    60gb 5400 2.5" hdd
    this 7" touchscreen in-dash lcd
    http://cgi.ebay.com/7-In-Dash-VGA-To...19924727QQrdZ1
    got decent reviews and is non-motorized (good thing)

    I wish I would have thought about a carputer before I got my 880. My alpine 7995 was great but I upgraded to the 880 mostly for the ipod integration

    Re: Carputer 101

    On MP3Car.com I saw all the diffrent front ends, but I didnt get into detail. Are they like another program in windows, or does it overwrite windows? I'm having problems right now with winamp closing when I switch songs, and its pissing me off.

    Re: Carputer 101

    There is a setting in my frontend (Centrafuse) where i can run it as a shell(it gets rid of the windows explorer desktop,and you cannot use ur desktop now,only centrafuse) or you can run it as is like any other program. set your resoluion to your desire and walah. i just put my centrafuse in my startup up menu so right when my computer logs in it automatically loads up centrafuse,this way i can access my desktop when in need in my car.

    Shell, for me is better. Because I regularly attend shows, and I wanna upload the pics and vids while I am there. BUT....I guess if I ran it, I'd have to pull my monitor/HU back out, and run the USB cable for the touch screen, lol

    put it like me

    click Start
    All programs
    and drop centrafuse(or whatever you are using) in the Startup folder

    this way you can access your desktop,its much easier to upload through windows it self then through a frontend IMO
    when you login it will boot it up automatically,but this way you wont sacrifice your desktop
