One topic I would like to see in the magazine is using the Odroid C2 as a Handsfree device for an Android phone : in call sound is streamed from phone to Odroid, phone can be controlled (answer / hang up a call) from an application on the Odroid etc.

Although this topic is very cool and will make a great upcoming article, would you mind moving the CarPC discussion to another thread? I want to keep this one more on-topic for general article suggestions. Just link the new thread below :)

I've split the topic and moved it to C2 - Projects forum: viewtopic.php?f=140&t=25539 I chose Ubuntu CarPC as a topic name, hope that's fine with you all :)

Thanks Meveric... in the meantime I had already created a new thread in C2 / Ubuntu for the GPS navigation software. The "project topic" is OK and i'll point to the GPS thread for this particular issue.
