    Red face can you use a laptop screen for a mp3car setup?

    is this possible? If so how?
    can you use the whole laptop instead of removing the screen?

    if the laptop had video in or use a pcmcia / usb video in device...

    or get a controller for the lappy screen.. either way its totally pointless.

    Hmm

    I'm using a old 9.5" toshiba laptop screen in my car and controlling it with my EM-586. I don't think it's very pointless.

    How to control it?

    Do you have an EM-586? Or do you need a controller. If you have an EM-586 you can wire it up to the lcd. I'm still waiting on the pinouts from toshiba so I can hook it up.

    That should have been "I'm using a old 9.5 inch toshiba laptop screen in my car and will be controlling it with my EM-586. "

    Haven't got it working, yet

    hey Arby, do you have a website. i'd like to check
    out your setup... where did you get your EM586?

    with lcd controller.
