    Question regarding touchscreen kits

    Can you, rather than mount the touchscreen panel on top of the LCD display, mount the touchscreen panel anywhere else? (ie, LCD display in one area, touchscreen panel installed stealthily elsewhere and used like a giant trackpad for the display.)

    Keep in mind that a touchscreen acts as a mouse-click... not a mouse cursor in of itself. If you try to use it as a touchpad and move the mouse across the screen, you'll really be clicking the mouse at every point along it's path.

    Yah... but then why did he bring up the touchscreen? Maybe he wants it clear, so he can like stick it to his dashboard. Move the cursor around by touching the dash.. that'd be pretty nice.

    Actually yeah, that's precisely what I was thinking of... I guess not though. My only beef with touchpads, aside from the fact that most are too small, is that they're pretty horrendous aesthetically and are a dead give-away as to what's in the car, which shoots down my approach to creating a stealth system.

    Maybe I could take apart a large touchpad and integrate it somewhere... anyone know any large (ie, bigger than these 2" dealies) touchpads?

    Question Touch Screen Madness

    Help . I ordered a touch screen kit from Xenarc and I just cant get it to work. When I try to install the drivers that came in the Driver CD it gets almost to the end of the wizard then it freezes up my computer . On both a desktop and a laptop computer . Ive tried drivers from different sites but they dont work either . Some seem to install but I get amessage saying that the hardware is not properly installed or a message saying they cant be installed because Im missing an inf file . (whats that ) . Finally I tried some drivers from cartft.com that I saw mentioned in a post . These seem to install but nothing works . The Device Manager Shows the hardware installed allright but no dice . Also how do I install all the utility programs that are needed to calibrate the screen and whatnot . Can I just copy them to the desktop one at a time from the zip file . Excuse my lack of terminology . Ive invested at least 24 hours into this with no results . Im almost ready to give up except I know that others have done it . Thanks in advance .
