Raspberry Pi Touch Screen Car Computer
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?

i have always wondered: how well would this work in a cold climate? obviously sunlight is sunlight regardless of air temp, but how well would something like this do in sub-0 temps? would the sunlight be enough to overcome the cold air, or would it just freeze up?
