  • built-in LCDs in new cars

    I've seen several new car ads that show a LCD screen built into the dash of the car. The '04 Toyota Prius has one and I know I've seen several others.

    Does anyone own a car with a built-in LCD that they have successfully plugged into their carputer?

    You are talking about the GPS touch screen right?

      In the case of the Toyota Prius, it's call the "voice-activated DVD navigation system"



      I'm just interested in finding out if these can be hooked directly into a carputer for a ready-made LCD install.

          How difficult was it to plug into the LCD? Was there a video input already for the LCD or did you do some hardware hacking?

            I know i'm resurrecting an old thread, but I figured this could be useful to a lot of us now-a-days purchasing cars with navigation systems built in. Like the prius, I have the Toyota/Lexus navigation system built in, and will definitely be trying to hook up other components (potentially even a carputer) into it. My toyota camry has the same navigation system that comes standard in older model Lexus'.
