Everything you need to expertly install car PCs. This is a heavily-illustrated, step-by-step guide to installing and controlling a car PC - using commonly-available, off-the-shelf components. Numerous how-to photos and product shots allow you to easily navigate each step even if you have little "do it yourself" experience. It includes parts and required tool lists, troubleshooting tips, and a list of manufacturers where you can purchase the parts best suited for your customized system. A companion website offers free software and demo versions of products to use with your car PC.



You won't find an easier or less expensive way to bring the ultimate in computer and GPS technology to your car, truck, or SUV than this start-to-finish guide from expert customizer Gavin Harper. You don't need any electronics or auto experience to get started!

With clear, hands-on photos and instructions, Harper walks even newbies through every step of the process, from choosing equipment to installing finishing touches on an IT system that will set your car apart -- and save you hundreds -- perhaps thousands -- over what your friends will pay to have others do it for them.

No matter what type of vehicle you own, Gavin Harper's Build Your Own Car PC makes it simple to:

  • Install a GPS that tells you where you are and how to get where you want to go
  • Create voice control of audio and video
  • Automate heating, cooling, lighting, and other functions
  • Build in ultrasophisticated car security
  • Much, much more


  • Features the best, most complete illustrated instructions for installing a car PC and a GPS system
  • Focuses on prefabricated components that are easy to work with
  • Compares products by brand name, and tells you where to get what you need
  • Shows you exactly what to do with more than 200 photos and illustrations
  • Provides expert troubleshooting (and trouble-avoiding) tips
  • Gives you free, helpful software at the book's own Website!

1.0 von 5 Sternen Misguided product 7. Juli 2010
Von bitter critic - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Would you recommend that the first PC somebody build be a car PC? I wouldn't, so imagine my disappointment when I discovered that this book was an oversimplified PC assembly manual for the beginner with little or no specific info for installing a PC into a car. Shame on me for presuming that it would cover more than just slapping a DC-DC converter onto a micro-PC. There was little to nothing on integrating a PC into a car, little-to-nothing on tailoring windows products towards the mobile PC environment (to minimize memory requirements and boot-time). Most of the book is stock product photography and text taken from product web sites.

Seriously, why would I need a book that spends about 1/4 of its thickness explaining how to hook up a motherboard to the case? And to further the impression that it was written for the computer Luddite, it mentions that Linux is beyond the scope of the book. Granted, there may be someone who wants to build there very first PC as a car PC, and is going to need all the hand-holding in the world, and it is also possible that the same person may not be up to the task of learning Linux. Peace. But then why do they include a silkscreen template for etching your own copper-clad PC board. For real? Who is their demographic? Is there truly a section of the population that is adept enough to make their own circuit boards, yet inexperienced enough to need a book to repeat the on-screen instructions for a Windows install and show them how to make connections that can, in reality, only be made one way due to the design of the connectors? Maybe a 72 year old Ham radio operator falls into this category, but are they the ones buying this book????

The remainder of the book was just screen shots from installation wizards for Windows and drivers.

No disrespect to the writer, as it's a noble idea, but the execution is horrible.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Good Ideas, but outdated. 30. Juni 2011
Von JonnyC - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Just finished reading this book. First, the book itself is very well written and easy to understand, but not as "instructional" as I would have hoped.

I believe this book was written a few years ago and even in that short of time frame, almost everything that is covered is already cheaper and outdated. Almost everything he covers is at the oldest technology end of what can be purchased today. For example he highly recommends Windows XP as the best operating system to have (We all have Windows 7, and 8 will be out shortly).

The actual how-to part of this book basically is a review of each item he has. Not really how to use it or the best way to run them. And any instruction he does give can easily be learned with a quick google search. I'm not downplaying the book or the author. With technology like this, anything written a few years ago will be very outdated today.

Overall, he presents a few good ideas that you might not have thought of. But other than that, not much else.

The book has some good information for when it was written, but It was published in 2006 and much has changed since then. I also felt that for a do it yourself book that it used some technical terms that a do it yourselfer like myself had to go look up to see what he was talking about. I feel it is not up to date with the equipment available today nor the new systems in automobiles that a carputer would have to integrate with, such as steering wheel controls. It is pretty much useless for today.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good in-depth instruction on building your car PC plus apps 22. April 2006
Von calvinnme - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This book takes you through building a car PC, using the VIA EPIA Mini-ITX series of motherboards. The case for putting a PC in your car is becoming increasingly compelling with the demands of the modern driver. As well as "infotainment" applications - keeping the kids amused on long journeys, occupying passengers in traffic jams, providing music and rich media for all passengers etc, there are also a great many more "serious" applications such as navigation and route planning, avoiding traffic jams and so called - "telematics" where in-car communications and car computing are fused seamlessly into a single solution.
While the Mini-ITX solution does limit your options in relation to PCI accessories, most of the functions you could ever want are integrated into the board anyway. For example, AC'97 sound which will meet the needs of all but the most demanding users. Video-wise, the EPIA Mini-ITX motherboard's on-board video is well suited to the sort of applications that you will be running in your Car PC. Thinking about what you would like to be using in you Car PC, you might come up with a list that looks something like:
Satellite navigation
Listening to music
Watching DVD's
Watching files store on your hard disk
Surfing the net
Typing the odd document on-the fly
This book will help you make your car PC capable of all of these tasks. This book is much better than the author's other book "50 Awesome Auto Projects for the Evil Genius". This book has all of the construction details and insights that other book lacked. I notice that Amazon does not show the table of contents so I do that here:
Chapter 1: Why would I want to build a Car PC?
Chapter 2: Buying your components
Chapter 3: Building Your Car PC base unit
Chapter 4: Installing the operating system, motherboard drivers and front end
Chapter 5: Connecting your Car PC to the "Real World"
Chapter 6: On-board diagnostics
Chapter 7: In-car speech recognition
Chapter 8: Killer software applications for your Car PC
Chapter 9: Getting more out of your Car PC
Chapter 10: In-Car GPS Epilogue

5.0 von 5 Sternen Does it make sense for you to have a car PC? 19. April 2006
Von John Matlock - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
The first thing that I thought when I saw this book was why would I want to build a car PC. Then I picked up the book and the first chapter was titled 'Why would I want to build a Car PC.'

The first reasons that he gives have to do with entertainment: replace your radio with satellite or audio jutebox, add television and a DVD player. Well, the last time I turned on my radio, which is AM/FM and maybe cassette (I forget), it worked. But that was several years ago. I don't like the noise. So far, no sale. Other people, perhaps yourself, will want an improved entertainment center, so this might be important for them.

Then I got to Chapter 6. Here he is talking about On-board Diagnostics. Your car (unless it is really old) has built in diagnostics. This electronic system monitors all kinds of stuff that's going on in the engine. Now this is something that I can care about. When the stupid 'CHECK ENGINE' light comes on I'd like to know if it is something serious like no oil pressure (i.e. pull over quick) or if it's something like the car has been X miles and it's time for regular service.

Then in Chapter 10 he goes into GPS and map software. That stuff is expensive if you buy it from the car company and it goes out of date quickly. If you do your own you can upgrade it as often as you like.

All in all, maybe it does make sense to build a car PC.
