SPOD + switch gang or Rasberry Pi + touch screen
I had been thinking about using a Rasberry Pi to trigger and control the various lights I plan on mounting to Hawkeye. Using it as a bit of a learn to code (or re-learn to code) project, with a touchscreen panel mounted where the SD/USB/12v power cord is.
The advantages of this are all control and power would be routed over a single cable run (or maybe two) if the Pi was mounted in the engine compartment. Disadvantages would be coding issues, how to trigger a safe shutdown of the Pi at power off of the Jeep, and I don't think any screens actually fit that space properly. That is, they are either too small or too large.
The other option was a sPOD, which I believe MFC is selling, alongside a machined switch gang designed to fit into that area and relocate the media and power ports as well. The disadvantage, his behaviour on this forum, and the rather abrasive way he treated some of the community.
I'd rather not support such behaviour unless it's the only option. Does anyone have a line into a similarly machined switch gang or sPOD control?
