    Yeah, sure. Sorry about that... I could have sworn that I had listed it, but it must have been in a PM.

    I just added two additional pictures to the Webalbum.

    I'm pretty sure it's basically a Lilliput monitor, but it's an unbranded OEM version that has been modified by "Motor City Technologies" with transflective enhancements.

    It's 800x600 but supports input resolutions up to 1024x768 via VGA cable.

    I paid $518.89.

    Cheers.

    I saw that you pieced out parts of the system (second battery, gps,..). What are you now including in the Escape package? And what else would be required for a functioning and reliable carputer? How difficult is the removal of the old system and the installation of the new system for someone new to carputers (ie how much am I going to screw up when I attempt to install)?

    Sorry for all the questions but this would be my first adventure into modding my car.

    No problem. Ask lots of questions.

    I split everything I had into three kits from the beginning. Everything listed in the first post is still included.

    You'll still need a small form-factor PC with a power supply intended for carputing. The second battery is optional.

    Greetings & Salutations! I was wondering if you had a pic or two of the screen actually running? Any issues with the display or touch?

    Jerry,

    I'm sure I have pics. I'll dig and post some this weekend.

    No issues with screen display or touch.

    Jerry, I dug through my photo archive and it turns out I don't have any shots of the screen running post install. I'll post a couple of it running pre-install, but I'm sure that's not what you're asking for.

    There are no issues with it.

    I could take everything out of the box and plug it in, to take a photo if you really need it, but I'd rather not bother.
