Amiga ... in the car!

Hello all... I'm thinking of buying Android head unit for my MK5 Golf. Anyone bought one of these or can recommend a reputable one as there is too many available.

I'm thinking of Android because effectively it will be a tablet so I can download the relevant apps to give me all the glory of Amiga on the go... Eagle player for accurate mod playing anyone!?

Regards,
Lesta SMSC

Personally I think your should build an A600 into the centre console

UAE4all works pretty well on my Android Pad if I whack the CPU up to 1320mhz but destroys the battery pretty fast like that!

Hehe I don't think the Amiga would fit into centre console! Although I could have it connected to my inverter in the boot and RCA cable it to headunit... how did you increase cpu speed? I believe the headunit are 1GHz processors

Unfortunately its not mine
I think the author started with an A600+viper 030 but changed to an A1200 if you look in the top right hand corner of the page you can see the hardware/software etc
nice project

Bet he picks up heaps of girls in the DISKDRV

How could someone honestly think that sticking hundreds of disks to their vehicle was a good idea?

Haha, why did I think "Only an Aussie would do that" before I saw the NSW plate?

(Actually it could probably also happen in Germany but the dent was somehow incompatible with that.)
