I'm not really thinking about a car application. The two screens will  
be a TV and a small-ish touchscreen in the case, so a remote is  
really only an option for the TV imho, if only because there are  
already enough remotes in our living room. However, if this works out  
the way I'd like it to, it will obviously be useful for carPCs as  
well (:
