It may be a bit too techie for me atm. I had more of a vision of mounting a netbook into the dash. And then I see celllog8's with usb cables, Zilla communicating via hyperterminal, and wondering if anyone put it all together and could suggest components that work. I am not at the solder and PC board level. thanks
Two awesome links! Someone needs to develop a display unit with wiring interface along with the bluetooth. This is rather exciting to learn! Gauges can be a challenge to place but a small TFT display like a large GPS would be simple to mount on the dash somewhere.Were you thinking of something like this, or perhaps this?
I can imagine mounting one of the newer Android tablets in the car.
