PipoX8 as car PC

Post by mickchip » Mon May 01, 2017 11:24 am

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.

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

Pipo X8 nearly ready, have managed to change the bios logo & have finished installing software plus my power supply has arrived.

Very nice Mike!

Will you be mounting the PipoX8 in front or in the dashboard of the Audi?

How will you manage the power shutdown and startup of the PipoX8?

Can you see the screen when it is sunny outside? Will you be installing some polarized screen overlay on the PipoX8?
