    WTB: 3.5" - 4" w/ Touchscreen

    I was playing around with a Garmin c330 the other day at work, and noticed that the screen would fit almost perfectly on the left side of my dash. (btw I have a 2002 Malibu). I figure I can mold it to the dash and it wouldnt obstruct my view points as well as not take my eyes very far from the road.

    Any suggestions? VGA would probally give me the best resolution if possible.

    Is that dash the same as the 98?

    I believe just about everything in the Malibu's were the same from 97-2003.

    Here is what I had in mind.

    Cool
    How about modding a gauge cup and mount it on the A pillar?

    Side note: gotta love that damn pull out cup holder. I have smashed my knee on that thing so many times I am surprised it has not broken. More so, I am surprised I have not yanked it out yet.

    I would consider doing something along those lines, except that I have to see if any one has a 3.5" - 4" touch screen first, or it such a device exists.
    Any one?

    I've smacked my knee on the cup holder too, it actually works out great in the summer. With the AC on you can keep your drink warm by directing the vent on to it.
