    Anyone know how long an rs-232 serial cable can run? (ie can I run it from my trunk?)

    Dont want to buy a serial capable screen and then realize I can't use it for my application - an in dash screen with a mini itx system in my trunk.

    thanks!

    I've seen them selling up to 15ft in length. I've used a 15 footer to control my display from the trunk and it works fine.

    The spec says 50 foot without any repeaters. However I've gotten it up to 150 on other un related things.
