This is my latest thing: I'm trying to mod a 95' Ford Explorer with a PC or Mac, LCD screen, Video Cam, GPS, and DVD. What I'm thinking of doing. Get 12V to 120V DC Inverter They are pretty cheap. Figure $30 w/ shipping Get a Car Dash Mount LCD Again pretty cheap. Get one for $30 to $100 Or if I have the money a touch screen is about $400 on ebay. I thought it would be cool to have an infered camera mounted on the dash. It would be great at night and for seeing all the deer up by my house. It could be wired to record to the hard drive so if anything happened like a crash you could have video of it. infrared camera $20-35 GPS Receiver $15-30 I think a PC would be the easiest and cheapest way to do it. I want to try and keep it below $300. I think I will use this case In the summer to keep it cool there are A/C vents for the back seat that could be directed into the computer with just some dryer duct. Then for TV just get this $.99 antenna Then I would also build a cantenna that I would mount aiming out the far back window. This way wardriving would be so easy. Also all I would have to do is connect from the Car to my home wireless network and update itunes with all my latest songs from my PC and Mac. $10 for a PCI network card, $20 for the wire for a cantenna. Then maybe get a Car dianostic port cable made for a PC. You can change all kinds of stuff on there and load programs that can save gas or improve preformance. Thats all I think I would want. So about $550. I'm sure there would be many more costs like wire, tools, parts. I checked out my local laws on DVD players in cars and screens ect. GPS is legal. So I could just make the screen saver look like a GPS screen of SLC or just have the GPS sofware be the screen saver. I would also install Phone Home So if the car was ever stolen and the guy ever left it running near a wireless network it could send me the location just like he pluged it into the wall. Maybe, kind of unsure if this would work. I'm wondering a few things: Is there an OS that boots very fast? Some sort of linux version? Would I have to add an extra battery or 3? To Power the 700 Watt inverter. The PC case above draws max 230W But more like 200W then the LCD, Cam and everything. Thank you for reading my long idea of what I want to do. Do you see any problems with it or anything I should add?
