I would take a look at some of Pioneer's units. They have some that are a nav system with a video aux for using Mac minis and other stuff.

Love it! I might (hopefully MIGHT) be in the market for one of the new GTI mk5s. I would love to put a mini in it!

I wonder about operating conditions. It gets super hot in my car on the typical summer day and very cold on a winter night. How do you think this affects the computer and the screen?
