Default After market De-fogger?

Hey congrats for the purchase dude!
Even I am contemplating a Swift VDi as my 3rd car. Can anyone enlighten me whether the Rear de-fogger can be retro fitted on to the car?? I am amazed that VDi doesn't come with this even though it costs 6 lakhs which is not cheap!!

A carputer is simply a car pc.
In this case, the carputer is externally installed. In higher cars like BMW, Audi, a carputer is built-in eg. The BMW comes with i-drive.

The carputer is used for everything- from entertainment stuff like playing music & videos to GPS navigation, parking assistance and most importantly car component management & diagnosis.

Nisarg ,

NIce setup I have few questions for you

(1) Does D945GCLF has address range for 2GB RAM ?
(2) What is your boot and shutdwn time and How much time your CAR PC takes to hibernate and come out of hibernation with 2GB RAM ?
(3) Are you running dual display VGA for navigation + Movie on this board ?
