Update! My carputer featured on official Subaru of North America promo website. Check it out at imprezashakedown.com.
Automobile carputer that provides GPS Navigation, video and audio playback playback and on-board WiFi Internet connection.

This is a global car computer diagram uncovering wiring and design logic.
Even though CD-ROM is available within easy reach, USB hub has proven to be the most efficient input device, molded into carbon fiber plate, next to the "master switch".
