You can either:
- Turn brightness to max, and plug your computer to the car's DC (so the 
battery lasts more than 30 minutes)
- Go the Teleatlas/NavTeq way. Power inverter, 19' server rack in the 
trunk, and so many screens that it's a spaceship more than a car.
- Buy a laptop with a glossy screen. No, really. Glossy screens are 
quite readable if they are hit with full sunlight, and have their 
backlights off. You may have to tinker with the ACPI lid button in order 
to achieve that, though.
