Pine64 Head Unit
#31
Slick Idea. 

I'm on board with using it to feed existing head units the media stream and act as a Waze display. 
I don't see a lot of benefits in trying to rework what is already cheap and figured out, so I'll just plug into the rear inputs on my head unit for volume control/amplification, meanwhile I still have all the features of the am/fm radio in the car when I'm not using it. 

Fed through a wifi hotspot from a phone in the driver's pocket this will work fine.

I am looking forward to controlling some old dell 16" lcd monitors I've removed the base from and planned to mount in the back of my minivan for my kids.
I'll be trying to pair it with another mounted low in front of the center counsel to control their screens and use as a Waze and Media center control. 

Its kinda nice to think if I have wireless keyboard nearby it is a full on computer I can use for just about anything when I want.

I will also be adding the obd2 bluetooth into the scene since I already have it, so I'll probably try to use remix OS so I can just use the already available apps.
I am hooked on watching the fuel trims and other outputs to read the status of the engine.

I'll be lurking. Thanks for posting the project.

I forgot to add, I'll probably pick up a cheapo 12v rechargeable battery for a power tool from harbor freight or the likes, and using a diode stop it from draining the battery so it can only charge on from that wire feed, meanwhile it will power the Pine until it dies. This is the same method I use on rewiring old cars to stop the alternator sensing feed from draining the battery.

I'm assuming the 12v power tool battery will be able to keep it alive for a day or two and I drive atleast once a day so the pine may never power off.
