    Raspberry Pi Touch Screen Car Computer

    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.
