    For all the reading you will want and more, www.mp3car.com

    for buying parts, www.newegg.com

    Takes a LOT of research to finally get everything you need and working in order. For the most part not much different than building any old computer, just use a different power supply and install it differently. Software is a whole nother battle though. Check out the road runner front end software, its what I use and works great.

    You will need Windowx Xp, Vista or whatever or Linux or some sort of operating system installed onto the computer for it to do anything within reason of course.

    Most DC-DC computer power supplies and such will have a turn on lead that you can use to hook up the amps too the same as you would a HU

    Re: Carputer 101

    I think I want to get an old desk top, take it apart, mount the parts in my dash, and get a lcd screen and make it adjustable to reach the passenger seat and about half way to the drivers seat.

    Use it to watch movies and store music.

    Could I just plug a wire from my computer headphone jack to my headunit's aux-in jack? And play music on windows media player?
    or is that a ****** idea?

    As far as I knwo they only come with windows XP right now. Most of the other stuff most of them have the wireless might have to add a usb thumb drive for that.
