I was thinin of something like this i was gunna build a computer itno one of those tiny little cases that have become popular for lan parties and bracket it somewhere into my trunk(more likely knowing me ill just throw it back there to wrestle with my massive subbox...also unanchored hehe) and run the wires through the cabin with a logitech wireless keyboard stashed in the trunk as backup.

How does the touchscreen connect to the computer usb? and if so 1 or 2.

How does the computer hook up to the car? ( i have no idea im this im very new with connecting cars to computers)

Does the software already supprot the touchscreen?

What OS is on the box Win, Linux(Distributataion?), Mac

sry for the questions but im a tech head and this instantly appeals to me as something within my realm to do. Some rebuild engines i tinker with computers.

My touch is USB 1. (all it even needs is serial connection, not a lot of data to pass through)

Right now i have a 400 watt inverter powering a standard power supply powering the computer. And the audio goes through a USB soundcard to the aux in on my Clarion headunit. The diagnostics is connected through my car'* obd port.. that is a very tricky thing to do, depends alot on year of car, make of car, money to spend (software alone for OBD I/1.5 is almost $200, OBD II about 2-300 + converter)

The computer is currently running a stripped version of Windows XP (300MB final installation) untill i get my Linux skills up, but when i learn a bit more i will proly goto Debian Linux because it runs nicely and doesn crash

EDIT: i missed one- the computer sees the touch screen as a mouse, and treats it as such so all programs support it

I think its time for an update:

I have been sans-car for two whole weeks whilst shes gotten a transmission overhaul. Thus, ive alot on my plate and my mind so havent gotten a writeup or even a finished dash yet.


I am making progress. I will have one eventually
