Update ... I have now got most of the 'bits' needed for this project, except for the head-unit. Looking at the reviews, all the bad press for the Lilliput GL701-TV/C/T,
seem to originate from just one person. As they have sold thousands, a few bad ones are bound to turn up. So, what to do...??? Also, I do note that it will obscure the controls and the vents, but this should not be too much of a problem, as the screen can be tilted forward or retracted for access. I think it will still be better, and more secure, than trying to mount a 7" monitor on the dashboard (or in the cup holder as I see someone has done)
Centrafuse is brilliant. I tried it out on the bench with Vista and just about nothing worked i.e. no drivers. Installed on the Jetway motherboard (for the carpc) with XP SP3 and it flies. Definitely one to buy. The solid state hard drive is proving to be a disaster. Reminds me of the original windows with a 10Meg hard drive - just slower! I have therefore bought a 360G 7200 2.5" which I will mount on its side with the hope that the pickups will miss the disks if I hit a bump.
I dont really need it, but I have indulged in an HD camera to stick on the back - this car is so darn big I can hardly see what I am backing into ;-) . It is all running sweetly on the bench, even the gps navigator, so as soon as I get the head unit I can start taking pics and get on with the install.
Thanks for your inputs.
