    Question Watching video while using GPS / web / whatever

    I figured I can get XCard and feed a couple of headrest TV screens off it, something like this:

    Carputer video out -> driver-side touchscreen monitor
    Carputer audio out -> small driver-only speakers or wireless headset
    XCard video out -> splitter -> flip-down or headrest TV screens
    XCard audio out -> headunit aux in -> car speakers

    What do you think, will this work? How do you guys do this?

    I just use USB speakers and use a plug-in for MapMonkey to play the voice directions.

    Im gonna have the speaker inside the head rest of my seat so i hear it loud and clear but no1 else does.

    This was what i was gonna have but the dual screen plan has been scrapped.

    Any other reason except cost? Technical problems?
