    Hi Eric,

     

    what do you think about Odroid C2 ? This guy added a library on android for – Digital IO,PWM,LCD,Servos,Motors,I2C,…
    Odroid

    Could be easy for you also to develop your app direct on 1 single board?

    looks like a nice package,

     

    couple that with the RTC for time. They also have a 1024×600 screen, although I bet it is not bright enough for a car.

    I am very close to ditching the android unit as I cannot see the screen in direct sunlight when I have my roof off in my car

    Hmmm, I’ll have to look into it, I’ve never seen it before.

    I had a Chalkboard Electronics screen with my Udoo… Worst screen ever.

    I have just the touch from Chalkboard and i don’t have any problem.

    Udoo is very slow in compare with odroid c2. And the support from odroid is 100 times better than udoo.

    Udoo is so slow, unbearably slow.  I stopped using it.  I’ll have to look into an odroid at some point.

    i’ve been looking at the odroid as well.  They have a nice sp/dif addon card but it doesn’t work with android as an OS, still they have a bunch of other features that I could use.  Plus having more than 1 usb port would be great, my nexus 7 is stable 98% of the time.

    I use x300 expansion board from raspberry pi. Working out of the box on c2 with android.

    That complete the c2 with all you need. http://www.suptronics.com/xseries/x300.html

    Here is a from c2 forum. ok = working 🙂 http://forum.odroid.com/viewtopic.php?f=137&t=22553

    – Input Voltage- 6V to 18Vdc – ok
    – SATA (maybe also is working out of the box, if the HAT is connected with the C2 via USB) – ok
    – Audio – 3.5mm MIC in jack (maybe also working out of the box, with a standart Audio USB driver) – ok
    – SPDIF output (hmmm, you have to try) – ok
    – Audio IO connector Microphone input and stereo audio amplifier 3.3Wx2 (hmmm, you have to try) – ok
    – Wireless – WiFi (same like Audio … with a standart USB driver) – ok
    – IR sensor (not needed… C2 has one) – not use
    – Bluetooth serial communication (again, … with a standart USB driver) – not working
    – USB Storage (should be working out of the box) – ok
    – Real-time clock (you have luck, its a ds3231, … the same I’ve used in my ODLib Example (viewtopic.php?f=137&t=21858), is working fine) – i don’t know how to check this and i don’t know how to use your library
    – Camera flex slot (I think … not working) – not use

    This looks great.  A lot of expansion for not a lot of money.  How well does Android run on the Odroid C2?

    It looks like most of the accessories on the expansion are using USB, not amazing, but not bad.  If it all works and runs smoothly I don’t see anything wrong with it.

    I’m really thinking of trying one of these out, think I’ll build up everything minus a touchscreen and see how things perform.  If all goes well I’ll start looking at screens.  The price isn’t bad at all, the only thing I’d like to see at a lower price is the eMMC memory module.

    Which module are you talking about?  I think the hardest thing for automotive use will be the touch screen.  Finding one that can put up with the stresses of the harsh environment.

    The android works smooth. You can use also the 40 pins for accessory , for ex: i tested serial gps and working well.

    For the screen i use a chinese screen and chalk-elec touch , for me working nice.
