A friend was nice enough to let me have his old laptop as he just recently got a new one. My plan is to use it as a GPS/navigation system on my truck.
I will be getting protective covers for the screen and keyboard and probably a case to hold it in. Dust inevitably will work its way into the computer but hopefully this will prolong its life. Hardrives are replaceable anyways and usually the first to go out from what I understand.
I have not decided on a mount system yet.
My question to those who use computers in their vehicles, have they held up well? Any suggestions to protect the computer from the elements? What mount system seems to work best for you? Pictures? Do you run off cig. adapter or inventerter? Whats proven to work best.
I run a dual battery setup so I've got plenty of battery power.
