  • VGA and RCA... Confusing....

    Hi !
    I know I should buy a lcd ts monitor with VGA but most of the monitor I found over the web as also RCA in description. I feel like I'm going to buy a RCA monitor with a VGA converter or something similar. What I should look for exactly to don't get screwed ?

    Most monitors have VGA input and RCA input. Some have 2 RCA inputs and 1 VGA input. Some (I think a Xenarc) has a DVI input even.

    Anyways, as long as the screen accepts VGA input, it is fine. Make sure the native resolution is 640x480 or higher. 800x480 is a great resolution for the car as the screen above. Although I have never heard of that brand, I am sure it is just a rebranded lilliput.

      It says in the product description that it takes VGA - 15 pin, D-sub connector. That's the right description.

      If it's new and less than $250, though, check it out very, very carefully.
