What navigation softare are you going to use ?
Also, how are you interfacing the Pi with the screen? I am guessing HDMI and usb for the touchscreen controller ?

pi connects via hdmi, but you can use vga. you do need a few mods though, the power supply to the screen is a 5v (minimum) 2.1mm jack the pi needs 5v max! the car obviously has a 12v cig lighter port. so a step down is needed. i will get back to you on the navigation software. and yes the touch screen controller connects via usb

I might scoop up another cubox if this comes out nice. And openelec is great, updated pretty regularly.

i had this same idea for a wile wanting to do it and load up a version of android on the pi and use it for tunerview and spotify but no good working versions of android for the pi right now. so i figured a tablet is gonna be the best option and am in the middle of that right now.

this is going to be anti-climactic, but anymore it's just easier to fab a mount for a cheap tablet than fuck around with your own screen and all.

WinBook TW70CA17 Tablet - Black 466326 - Micro Center

$60, throw a $30 64gb microSD card in there and you're set. I'm posting this reply on the 8" version of that tablet and it's insane how good it is for the money

lol! its called being different innovative and using a pi for more than just a small pc left in my room doing f all. anyone call get a tablet and mount it in, where is the fun in that ? using bash and Linux to create something unique i think is much better, cheaper too. a decent tablet 200? pi 30. a pi has much better potential than a tablet. you actually implement the software design new aspects not just rely on apple or android to do it for you, hence why i started this thread in the DIY section and not the not "buy not built" section. ( i know this section doesn't exist but just making a point.) you could say that about any d series car on here, why not just buy a skyline r34 GTR? because its about being different and trying new things ultimately cheaper and just as good fun. sorry clearly miss read this forum if this is the attitude of people on here.

thanks man yeah it should be awesome when its completed, one thing i will say though is if anyone is thinking about doing this make sure you get a case with a built in fan, the pi will get fucking hot inside a glove box, but with cooling it will be fine

If you're looking for functionality and cost versus spending time on a project, then doing a tablet is a better choice, is all I'm saying.

you are missing the point, i know a tablet would be a quicker choice and to someone who just wants a tablet in their car then yeah go for it but why bother? a tablet is portable anyway lol, not cheaper though definitely not. the pi is just better, i will have emulators like ps1 and 2, i love old school games which you just cant get on a tablet.

does it have to be android ? and why ? getting a good xbmc software on there is practically spotify.. with internet dongle obviously. couldnt you just use spotifys web page rather than the app?

Read my link- that's a baytrail Windows 8 tablet for $60. Full x86 quad core processor. You've got a $40 raspi and a screen and cabling and a glove box fan and a whole bunch of other nonsense. Don't tell me that setup is cheaper because it's not.

lol windows baytrial. its not very good at all. yes it sounds awesome. microsoft are saying all the right things to make you think that way. the base model 80. thats more than ive spent on the pi project. screen was 35 pi was 30 cables 8. the compatibility of that windows mahcine is junk. even the charger has to be windows usb lmao. you cant even use a normal usb charger. DVDs will only run when the tablet is on battery and when on battery you cant use any other usb ports for anything, including headphones jacks.
btw when the tablet is installed you would have it constantly running off the car power via the usb power supply yes ? good luck watching dvds when the tablet is on mains power. because you cant. lol. also becuase one usb port is being used for charging, you cant you the port for anything else. good lol cant store music on a usb and use it can tstore movies and run them. yes you could use your 32gb sd card but that wouldnt last long for me.
lol if that's not bad enough it has windows 8 as an operating system. shite. don't tell me windows is better that Linux because its just not and i could go into a lot of detail about why not. also most of the money put into designing that tablet focused on the camera..... good luck taking driving selfies. one last thing on bay trial. the satnav doesn't use a satellite at all. they use broadcom... this means the location, time and precision imformation goes through windows locater.. not the industry standard MNEA serial data stream through a virtual com port required by Windows programs like Microsoft Streets and Trips or Delorme Street Atlas.
A company called Centrafuse makes a program called Localizer to fill this gap but that also adds $15 to the cost. The bigger problem is very few consumers will even know there is a gap… until they are in their cars and lost.

yes its a cheap tablet but its also shit.
not hating on you here just saying why are you on the DIY section if you just want to buy something and shove it on the dash, thats not DIY mate. not to me anyway.
