  • Usb Screens?

    Afternoon all,

    newbie here, with just a quick question. Ive got a laptop that ive linked into my head unit in my sx200. This is great, but I have to use the laptop to navigate and only have the laptop screen. Was going to go down route of building a carputer, but having the laptop, there seems little point. What I want to do is install a touch screen in the dash and keep the laptop safely tucked away. Does anyone know if there is a 7" touch screen that will run USB to allow me to navigate the laptop from the screen??


    cheers all

      just the touch screen, I should imagine I'll be able to run the display through the VGA on the laptop, though if i can run both through the usb it will be easier.

              as long as the drivers for the touch screen are loaded on your laptop, and you calibrate the 7" screen, you should be all set. Since you will be using the VGA out port on your laptop, this is bacically the same as using the 7" on say your home computer as the primary monitor.
              I see no reason why you will have any problems.
              Good luck.

                  ah, so you do want a screen with the touch screen panel

                  have a look here: www.linitx.com for LCD monitors. Also checkout cartft.com
                  there are some others, but those are the ones I mainly use.

                        At first I thought you only want a Touch Panel. That make me wonder, how the hell are you going to use it with the laptop?

                        And then you sound like you need a 7" VGA monitor w/TS. This will work if your laptop have an option to enable the VGA out port as a primary display and custom resolution. Custom resolution is not really needed unless you want perfection.
