In-car computer (PC)
I want to put a PC in my car as a media source for music/podcasts, movies for the kids, park and surf at hotspots, etc. Has anyone done this? I have an older laptop that I can use/sacrifice, or should I get a small pc case?
Things I want to do:
#Can I hook it up to the "key on" power to boot when I start the car.
#The laptop battery is weak and only gives power to the laptop for a few minutes (about 15 minutes then just enough to shut down)
#Disconnect and relocate the screen or install a touch screen
#Roof-mount (magnetic base) hi gain wi-fi antenna
#the in dash stereo has RCA/mini-jack inputs for sound
#I'm good with cars and computers. I can replace an axle as easily as a hard drive. I'm not afraid of getting greasy or soldering on boards. In other words, I believe I am up for the challenge
Any help or advice you can give would be greatly appreciated.
