  • LCD for GPS

    I am adding a GPS to my car... rand mcnally. I dont want dvd, so i was thinking about going with a ≈5" monochrome tft lcd. I'd like it to be vga and maybe touch...what are my options?

    I use a 5.6" NTSC color LCD.
    It's definitely big enough, but I wouldn't go any smaller. Additionally, I'd definitely insist on color. When screens are small and you're using them while driving, color queues are very handy. But that's me..

    As for NTSC for VGA.. NTSC has been fine for Winamp and CoPilot, but anything that requires reading small text is near impossible.
