I am building a compact black PC (its about the same size as the CD changer) with GPS, MP3/WMA/etc. player, bluetooth module, and WAP control (still coding that) ;-). Control module will be a bluetooth enabled PDA (pocketPC, Palm, whatever). on the dash.

Can someone point me in the right direction to find a voltage adapter and a decent aux converter (2 channel analog)? Bearing in mind I have the non-HK stock 325 '02 soundsystem.

Power is easy. The battery is in the trunk. Install whatever you need and connect it to the battery using appropriate fusing, and an inverter if you need one.

And at least 1 company (Soundgate) makes a AUX-in adapter that plugs into where the changer normally goes.

Excellent. So far my list has:

- Soundgate #BMWAUX for audio conversion - $?
- Cappuccino Espresso MiniPC (45W) running linux - $500
http://www.cappuccinopc.com/Media/images/doc2.jpg
- 100W Inverter - $50
- USB Bluetooth/802.11 interface - $50
- USB GPS Receiver - $90
- Palm M130 + Bluetooth - $260
- Some custom software

Alternatively
- 802.11 USB ($80)
- Toshiba PocketPC w/built-in 802.11 - $480

Comments/suggestions?
