Thats actually a method that has been around for years. Someone mentioned it in a comment above, but I also remember my dad talking about doing it in the 70's. Certainly, you could do it with cans but the go to method is to use black PVC pipe. You pretty much just divert the water leaving the pool pump and run it through the PVC which has been laid somewhere where it can get plenty of sun, usually the roof, then tie it back into the outflow from the pool pump. I've heard of it done with the regular white PVC spray painted black because the white is usually cheaper, the problem there is that the black PVC will hold up far longer in the sun due to its UV resistance

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?
