So I’m currently faced with a dilemma on how to add a UI to my car PC. Do I install a screen? Do I use a tablet? Do I mount said tablet permanently or just have it loose?
Option one can look one of two ways.
The first is to buy a screen and put it in a car tablet mount. Makes it a possible thief magnet however.
The second option looks like the following. Looks awesome but I’m a bit worried about it obscuring my vision while driving, and it’s quite expensive (almost $300 landed in NZ). I also have concerns about how visible the screen will be with sunlight shining on it.
The tablet options present the issue of them being stolen and attracting attention. I can either mount it in a car mount permanently, or have it in the car and hide it when we’re not using it under a seat for example. With the tablet options I’d need to work out how to do the reversing camera however…
