  • GPS Unit and In-Dash monitor

    Is it possible to get a decent GPS to display on my in-dash monitor? Like a receiver that has video out or something along those lines which will plug into the video in of my monitor.

    If so, what are my options without getting a complete CarPC? As I can't do that for quite some time. Would be good to be able to switch between DVD and GPS for now until I have the ability to build a CarPC later on.

    you can get a TomTom or Garmin unit with like a 2.5"-3.5" screen. Those just suction cup to your windshield. There's some hacks out there for them too where you can load them with videos and mp3's.

      I'm not really after one that will be on my windshield.. Just after one that I can hook up to the 7" Monitor that is already installed in my car. And hide the GPS unit itself away somewhere out of view.

        The GPS module is the same as a mouse or keyboard. It only provides the input to the computer. It is the compuer that processes the data and outputs it to a screen. Unless there is an integrated gps/processing module with some type of VGA/RCA/Composite output to throw it on your screen, you're going to be out of luck
        I installed my carpc into my pet Kangaroo, mate.
