I'd like to have something else similar to this in my car. An in-car computer that offered and handled all of the following would be great:
DVDs, TV, and Videos
CDs, Digitally Encoded Music, and Misc. Audio
FM and XM Satellite Radio
Weather and Traffic
Communications (Link with my phone via BT)
Voice Control and Recording
WiFi and VoIP
Internet, Email, IM, and Video Conferencing
Surveillance (rear-view camera, for instance)
Windows XP or MCE access for full computing capability
Control also via Hardware buttons and Griffin Technology's Powermate
Lightscribe-enabled CD/DVD+-R/RW/DL drive
Multicard Reader, USB and Firewire ports
Wireless Keyboard, Mouse, Remote, and Headphones
Flexible customizable GUI
...and Multiple independent source management and control:
-Four sources/four monitors - two up front, two in back (one in each headrest).
-Driver and each of three passengers to have access to different things simultaneously (for example, GPS, DVD, TV, and Gaming, all at once).
-Driver's source with its audio to pump through car speakers, all others sources with their own audio, feeds through wireless headphones.
-If one or more of the other three sources accesses the same content as the driver's source, then the audio still pumps through car speakers, or passenger can opt to still listen to it through headphones.
That's quite a bit, but I'd love to have that kind of power, control, and flexibility in my car.
might be the way to go. Out of all of the in-car computers currently out there, there's is the most impressive and well put together to me. There's always some room for improvement, though.
