Take a look at this german site showing modding of a A600, regarding how to install it into a car and use it as good MP3 Player, excellent Navigator and also for entertaining use. Enjoy it. (available in english also)

this...like other similar projects, is uber-cool.

anyone can rig up a Mini-ITX... but an A600 at 7MHz to do this sort of job?

el neato!

A pretty slow MCU could also be used to drive the mp3 decoder, however the A600 provides an IDE interface etc which cuts the development effort/time down a bit ;)

I prefer the version with A1200...

...because you can add to it a 16bit soundcard...

And it makes the difference compared to an A600 with 8bit audio chipset

mmm I think that the A600 have at least one accelerator card.

Very nice idea :-)

Paula is not an issue since the hardware MP3 decoder has its own audio autput, which is, AFAIK 16bit.

I just had to quote this one:

"6. and all the boasters with they're Car-HighTec-DVD-Players can go home, if you are able to play Jump'n'Runs, car racing or Bomberman in multiplayer-mode in your car :-)))))"

Amen. That is so right. I'll be fitting my next car with LCD sceens and mini-itx AmigaOnes for multiplayer games for sure :-)

Then I'll need to hire a driver so I can play games while travelling... Hmm, costly.

I'm sure it might be just a one-thing, does anyone here used the MAS? Any comments?

In reply to Comment 8 (Raffaele):
not an issue....the A600 isnt using Paula for sound output (apart from the
games - and even the A1200 wont use a 3rd party sound card for hardware bangin' old skool games0 - instead, its using the MAS - which has a very respectable output.

you could go 1 better here - have the A600 kept up by battery juice (i guess its got an isolator etc to stop typical drain), use a PCMCIA network card and
connect this to a wireless bridge...when the car is parked at home, you
could change your MP3 collection via the net.... connect a serial link to a relay and you could have a remotely operated heater for cold winter mornings... engine block and windows perhaps... maybe add a serial GPS device, record your journeys to disk and then when at home, you can do anaylsis (distances travelled, fuel consumption rates....etc - until AmigaOS gets a decent GPS software suite we're losing out on this point :-(

A fantastic project... I like the idea of playing a car racing simulator inside a real car :)
Some years ago a similar project has been made by an italian, he has put an Amiga in a Fiat 126 (using a small televisor instead of an lcd monitor) and he has brought it at the Pianeta Amiga 98 fair, see here:

http://www.amiworld.it/reportage/pa98/pianetaamiga98_eng.html
http://www.towertech.it/personal/azummo/amycar/AmyCar.html

If someone is interested, I can scan an article from a magazine with more photos.
