Re: PipoX8 as car PC

Still the PIPO X8 dual OS but prefer Android for the frontend, tried Centrafuse on windows but I don't like it.
The 2 photo's are Android.

Re: PipoX8 as car PC

Yes it is Torque on Android, the x8 has Bluetooth built in so its ideal for my ODB Bluetooth dongle.
I am going to install the GPS dongle internally

PipoX8 as car PC

Decided to use my PipoX8 for my car PC as I have had some issues with my joggler one.
This means I can use both Win10 and Android.
Just waiting for a 12v car power supply to arrive from Hong Kong before I fit it.
