just haven't gotten to the point that I can install it yet.
Nice setup! im building a PI touch screen as a 'glass' touch panel for my switches like heaters, A/C, etc.. along with a lot of temperatures too..

I like the idea of having "parking radar" what a great idea! cant wait to see the build thread on this setup!

Are you going to use a pi or tinker b? I was thinking two separate systems house controller (tinker b (more than twice as fast)) and chassis controller (pi3) I haven't even begun to think of the os and switch control board. build thread you say? OMG it's already been overwhelming with just tearing her down, it won't be for a bit but I'll see what I can do.

my plan is a pi3, I noticed tinker whe nI was in Micro center a couple weeks ago, and it looks interesting.. of course im an ASUS fan anyway..

I need to do some temperature testing on the pi3 to see if it can handle being located inside the dash.. the bus sits in the heat, and then drives.. in winter I run the H*** out of the heat s oi know theres heat blowing inside that panel with bluebirds bastardized way fo doing defrost on 1995 and newer models..

Sounds great! Be sure to document and open-source your work so that I can steal it.
