I am currently using Oziexplorer on a PDA, with a laptop packed away in the back for use when the larger screen is neccesary.
Just to share a couple of ideas I have been considering.
Noticed some 7 and 10inch high resolution TFT screens going on Ebay recently for as little as $200;00AU, would fit on the dash very neatly - some are touch screen so it would simply be a case of mounting the screen on the dash or any position convenient to the user.
Then under the passenger seat of my 93 pajero there is a plastic draw, the perfect location for a laptop or maybe build up a small PC and use use a bracket to mount hard disc, CD/DVD etc....
If any has a broken Xbox laying around I think the carcase may be ideal to mount it all in there.
