P1 (Under-the-Hood)

Ships in 2-3 days

P1 is a fully featured Linux computer that is designed to be hardwired into your vehicle. Combining the PocketBeagle single-board computer with an M2-UTH Interface Board gives you the unprecedented power of running Linux apps directly on P1. The P1 interface allows you to run various software packages that allow you to read, write, and monitor the car’s network data without being constantly tethered to a computer, and without the steep learning curve of microcontroller programming. P1 also sports a handy USB A port for simple plug-and-play installation of add-ons such as WiFi adapters, cellular modems and storage drives. For more details of the benefits and features of Linux and the PocketBeagle, you can check out some FAQ here.
