Raspberry Pi Touch Screen Car Computer
Use tablet and vnc into the rasberry pi ! I think this should work !
Jasper project or PiAUI integration can be done to achieve it.
Portable Raspberry Pi Emulation Machine
Has anyone successfully created a raspberry pi emulator with a Mac?
The music system is already there, and the GPS and camera in-car pi has been done. I just saw it on another site right before I came here. I also saw another one which integrated the ODB-II port so he could get real-time data from the engines computer. That being said, I haven't seen one yet that integrated all of these features. Not that it doesn't exist, I just haven't found it yet after the first 3 results on Google. (I'm interested in doing very much the same thing)
From what I gathered, he used the audio out on the pi and ran a cable from there to the aux in on the old head unit, which he relocated elsewhere in the vehicle. Thats about the best way to go if $$$ is a primary concern. Myself, I would probably use an amp of some sort. Either a standard car audio amp or a smaller, integrated type amplifier. I can't remember what that type is called, but I see them used regularly in MAME arcade cabs.
Why use the Pi AND the tablet? Isn't that a bit redundant? And how much space does the data for the offline maps take up?
Floating Game/DVD Shelf
:) I literally laughed out loud. then cried at the ripoff
The Indestructible USB Containment Unit
how long does the battery last?
Is it possible to install GPS , Music System and Camera all together in this ?
I've gone down a 'different' road. I've set up a Raspberry Pi media sever (minidlna) and isc-dhcp-server with a very small USB powered WiFi access point that I got for £2 and an old 320 GB USB drive all in the boot (trunk). The power is via a 5V 3A UBEC (model aircraft power supply) that can handle up to 26V input. The 'front end' is a 7" android tablet (£25), running Kodi (with CarPC-touch_carbon skin. A bit of XML editing was needed to get this installed) and Maps.Me (offline maps!) for navigation that plugs into the car stereo via an Aux input. This allows me to manage media content from my desktop PC to the car via Wi-Fi and when not in use, the tablet's in my pocket. There's nothing visible to steal
