I'm curios what your carputer consists of because these days you can just throw a tablet into dashboard (needs modification), if you are looking for simple maps/ multimedia.
Well I really wanted to create a look that seemed to be OEM. Also, I wanted to have a lot of expandability. So that if I wanted to keep all of my movies, music or whatever I could do that. Additionally, I want to be able to add things like tire pressure monitoring that seems like the least amount of questions is with a carputer.
Going a tablet route may have been able to work out with all of that. But I pretty much had all the spare parts I needed laying around, so this works out for me to do it this way.
