Way cool... never looked into touch screens though. If that were affordable
or if one of these
fancy radio heads with a CRT came out that had VGA and Touch Capability for
display I would
for sure install on in the Wife's truck. I think I'll be taking over her
truck in the next year
or two anyway <grin>.

"Chip and boardmaker Via has partnered with an online retailer to
create a car PC targeting in-car navigation and infotainment
applications. The $300 "Voom PC" is supported by a media-oriented
embedded Linux operating system, and is based on one of Via's newest,
most powerful mini-ITX motherboards."


This may be of interest to some of you for APRS and other mobile
applications.  Many end-users have pieced together car PC's from
readily available parts, but I think this is the first time a
manufacturer has developed a complete system for this purpose.
