This is a great idea, a Windows computer in hdmi card. Install opencpn on this and plug it into your TV on board.

Re: HDMI pc

You can plug a gps into it correct?

Can it run linux? What about power consumption?

Re: HDMI pc

Hello, I saw this thread and wanted to provide a couple more cents.
I noticed on the Spec page it mentions USB 2.0 but does not specify whether it is an additional connection option or the power for the dongle.

Spec page:NH1 – Smallest Windows Compute Stick with Intel® Atom™ Processor Z3735F | Intel® Internet of Things Solutions Alliance

I have a atom netbook and it takes a good while to startup but once running not the fastest device but it will get the job done. Usually 1:30 for startup.

Re: HDMI pc

From the announcements there will be a (1 GB ) Linux version for 89$.
Those sticks are powered by USB and have WiFi and BT onboard.
MicroSD slot as well.
And funny: a small fan
