Car integration

These units are extremely interesting, especially considering they are not much more money than factory installed upgraded headunits or brand name "car computers" (which are actually far from being actual computers), AND they are capable of doing much more.

I have a few questions concerning upgradability, since these are computers, one would expect down the line you can change out each piece individually as they either wear out or become outdated:

Do you supply the operating system information, or disc, so that if a part is changed out and the OS needs to be reinstalled it may be done by the purchaser, say a few years down the line?

How long does the warranty cover operation of the unit if they unit is never tampered with? And, if in a few years, the customer wants to have something upgraded by E3iO, may they send it it to have it upgraded by E3iO?

Which processor should be used to have the screen show 1080p resolution?

How many SSD's is the motherboard capable of attaching?

Does the navigation system come with free lifetime maps, or must it be periodically updated?

Is it possible to get 4 sets of pre-amp outputs instead of the 50Wx4 amplifier?

Cheers,

Mick

Haven't heard anything yet.

Did some more research and it may be possible to use a program to tap into the CAN bus in the car to control those things with the add on OBDII port.
