My Ride: E46 330xi
CarPC to end all Dynavins

Problem: My E46's D99 Dynavin (WinCE 5) doesn't want to process video in, so it's become a toshiba ARM 2440 MCU experimenter board that looks like bmw parts to play with, but a car without head.

Solution:I'm going to install a carpc with the following specs on my 2003 330xi.

I ordered the E46 Xenarc bezel for the 700TSV from Janus.

Everyone, including Kenishi over there says it works with all Xenarc 7" monitors, but I'm getting sticking with the TSV. I'm going with Xenarc over liliput for the linux support and because I like the look better.

I want to run ride runner on win 7 with backtrack on vmware.

I want to have convention windows and linux operation, with the ride runner frontend.

I haven't picked navi software but I need that.

I also need to figure out and photograph the Harman Kardon amp hookups, because the dynavin just used the fakra cable, but the carpc has to take over all that.

It's be cool to put a roof rack with removable solar panels and storage for a bike genset, but weapons storage and a yakima box for cargo comes first after carpc.

What am I missing from this list?
