    Default Car PC

    Hi Guys,

    Not sure if this is already covered in a previous thread (i have tried searching)

    i'm putting together a homebrew car pc and have his the problem of steering controls....

    my current aftermarket radio (alpine) has a neat little adaptor so it can under stand the half can-bus stuff but i fear that my pc i will need something a bit more adventurous...

    does any one know of a steering adaptor that outputs to usb and would install as a hid complient keyboard or something simila?

    any help would be great.

    Thanks

    bridgel

    hi big pete...

    yes he cropped up alot in my vast google searches and i've tried to pm him but the site returns the error


    1. ccsnet has exceeded their stored private messages quota and cannot accept further messages until they clear some space.
    any chance you could fire an email to him or anything?

    Thanks

    Terrans website is http://www.letscommunicate.co.uk/carputer/

    I got lots of info when I was building a Car PC for a previous motor. Worth looking.

    What is it you're trying to achieve with a "car PC"? I'm not knocking it just curious?
