I have a laptop grabbing gps coordinates and reporting them over 3g to a server, and getting a url to an image back, and displaying the image on an external outdoor lcdscreen.
Having a complete laptop isn’t optimal for a lot of reason, so im looking for new hardware and since im a .net developer gadgeteer seemed awesome, but i have some questions ofc.
Is it reasonable to do this sort of thing with gadgeteer or should i abandon my plans and just buy a bunch of laptops?
Getting a screen connected to it seems a bit tricky. atm it’s very low resolution and connected using DVI, but that will change, so i’m not sure about what resolution i will end up with and how to connect it. But is this doable in general for higher resolutions? Im assuming we will end up with some hardware between the gadgeteer and the screen, but if i have any say about it. What’s the recomended way of connecting it/communicating to it?
If this is doable, any recomendations on hardware is apreciated.
