ARM processor boards
Let's assume my next car computer ("next" being after I actually have one which I don't currently have but am working on see 8track)
where was I
Let's assume it's based on an ARM9 of some kind. Where will that come from?
A Chumby? A BeagleBoard?
Things I'd like it to have
USB - at least 2 ports, one for GPS and one for Lilliput DisplayLink screen WiFi Lots of RAM Fast CPU Ability to boot from flash or SD card Support for a huge SD card or support for a SATA drive
Candidates, let's be creative here
- BeagleBoard C or XM
- Mikrotik RouterBoard
OMAP processor 512MB RAM
Used in Always Innovating computers, which are a pretty good deal but have a long lead time.

Comments: FM Radio is interesting. Processor is not very fast and not much RAM. Only one USB port
