Back in the day, I used to be really enamored with the idea of a car pc in a radio head-unit form factor with a laptop hard drive that would connect to my home network for file transfers. I never built one of them though.
Now, however, newer cars have USB ports for mass storage devices full of mp3s and I'm eyeing the raspberry #pi 0w in the lab and having ideas.
I had ideas earlier today, AND a gift card...
HOWEE gettin' some bling!
@TheGibson broken image :(
@djsundog this was basically what I developed in my head back when I drove, and then I never did it 😅
@djsundog that's a slick idea and near what current infotainment systems do
@jbob that's the advantage this particular use-case has, any car with the capability has a native ui already for navigating music on a usb drive
@jbob @djsundog Suction-cup this right over the stock panel https://www.amazon.com/ELECROW-Display-1024X600-Function-Raspberry/dp/B01GDMDFZA
@jbob though now I'm wondering if any of the car electronics are accessible via Ethernet-over-usb
@djsundog Oh damn, you're giving me Ideas. Seems like this would be a perfect usecase for Syncthing.
