Hi out there!
it's reality! My 166 owns WLAN
I've got a Notebook (IBM R52, 1,86 GHz, 512 MB Ram, 60 GB) under the front-passenger's seat and a 7"-TFT (CAR-DP 700T SW) on top of the dashboard. The headphones out is connected to the cinch-cable of the ICS-CD-changer (ICS thinks it's playing discs...). There's also connected a Navilock GPS-mouse and a USB-extension-cable to attach external devices (USB-Sticks, HDs...) in the compartment below the monitor.
The computer wakes up from hibernate by pressing the little red pushbutton in the cassette department (CC-drive is already dismounted for some weeks anyway). That's just some seconds doesn't take more time then an access to the cd-changer.
Operating system is a very-slim Windows XP, as carpc software runs cPos
. Configuration can be performed by WLAN and VNC. Data transfer can be done per USB and FTP (WLAN).
What did I destroy in the car?
Just the compartment above the monitor (one big hole for the cables and 4 screws).
Why did I do that?
I'm tired burning and changing CDs. Basically I use the computer for music and later for navigation. It's possible to watch movies and connect DVB-T - but actually I don't need that.
There are some pics (not the best quality, just fast shots by my handycam):
