I'm looking to pair this with my Raspi for my 92 Accord.I want back up cam,forward cam with recording capability,wifi,blue tooth,GPS, and FM radio.My issue is I'd like to record from my forward cam while using GPS and listening to music.I'm not sure how to program everything or what distro to use.I had consider using the ir cam add on but wonder how well would it work at night.I am new to the Raspi and have had one a few months.I've mostly been playing around with it like a home pc.

I already have my GPS receiver.I'm just not sure how to set it up.I'll need to figure out which distro I'll be running first.Here's a link to my GPS write up from a few years back.

I plan on doing most of this already! As well as use some IR sensors for the front and back distancing alerts (maybe even side for parallel parking), and im going to sue the OBDII diagnostics for RPM/Gear/Speed information, and have it automatically spray nitrous at the pre-configured setup

Are you saying you need WIFI for the GPS?.. I dont think thats the case.. The GPS module doesnt connect to WIFI to get the GPS location.
