Interesting things on CCC iDrive

Just reading through stuff and found a couple of interesting items:

Possibilities for expansion
The Car Communication Computer (CCC) can be extended in a modular fashion for future applications. There are 3 slots available for later retrofitting with PMC (PCI Mezzanine Card) and PCMCIA (Personal Computer Memory Card International Association).


I wonder if an SSD add in card could be used for map data..


Memory chip for CCC applications
The memory chip for CCC applications contains two RAM memories. The memory chip is located above the two permanent RAM memories and is connected to the motherboard by a plug-in contact.

I wonder if the memory can be upgraded and if that would speed anything up

DVD drive
The DVD drive is used for the navigation DVD. When the navigation system is not in use, the DVD drive can also be used to play audio CDs and CD-ROMs.
Didn't know that, kinda handy I guess

Motherboard with processors
The motherboard holds slots for additional cards and for the memory chips for CCC applications. The following processors are found on the CCC motherboard, which work in the same way as control units and can be flash-programmed.
CCC applications (CCC-A)
CCC gateway (CCC-GW)
CCC user interface (CCC-BO)
CCC audio system controller (CCC-ASK)



So I guess overall it has me curious if things can be upgraded or if we can install SSD/PCMCIA Compact flash cards that would hold navigation data.. Could we turn our CCC into a CIC with upgrades? /shrug

This thread is like discussing how to add more memory to a Commodore 128.

haha, I know it's considered outdated now, but it would still be cool if we could convert it to drive/flash based map storage and bump up the internal memory.
