I was tired of listening to the local radio on my car, I wanted my own music. So in that case you have 2 possibilities: either you buy an other system or you build yourself a super carputer ! Needless to say that I chose the second option.
In this article I am going to describe the different choices I made to build it, but this is not going to be step by step tutorial to build yours.
I wanted this computer to play my music (from my usb key) but also radio. In order to do this I used the latest Raspberry Pi 3.
I needed a soundcard to connect to my car’s speakers, I decided to use the X400 Expansion Board. Why ? Because it is compatible with the latest Raspberry and can support a lot of different input voltage.
