    Use in-dash DVD headunit as a Carputer monitor; possible?

    I want to use a Kenwood DDX7017 DVD headunit, but I also want a carputer setup as well, so is it possible to use the headunit's screen as a Carputer monitor too?

    Yes
    I have found you an argument; I am not obliged to find you an understanding.

    you can get a converter... but the picture will be less than great....scan converter to composite....expect slightly blurry & small text will seem out of focus...fuzzy....not sharp..... usable, but barely in some cases

    put it this way, would you rather have a window made of glass or of thick plastic?

    Using a vga monitor would be the equivelent of looking through glass whereas using a compsite monitor would look more like thick plastic, as mentioned veyr fuzzy, ect. If your desktop has an s-video/compsite output try plugging that into a tv of any kind and let us know how well you can read the text.
