    DVD player for cars.

    When i install my lilli i want to connect a dvd player to it for now till i build a computer for the car, to play mp3 dvds and movies. i was wondering is there any difference in dvd players for cars, or is there a preferred brand. i can go to the swap shop and get one for like $60, but am not sure if there is a difference in quality and feature. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Also are there any vga dvd players that can work with the touch screen?

    i just want one that plays dvd's, plays mp3's on dvd's and burned dvd's. i do not know much about car dvd players. i was mostly wondering if they are all practically the same and if a company makes one that is touchscreen compatible.

    Yeah, carputers. Thats it.
    As for auto dvd players, there isn't much difference in quality. Well there is but its like comparing a $30 home set to a $90 namebrand. The lader is going to be better as in features and slightly better picture quality and sound output like spdif.

    if your going to be upgrading to a computer eventually then a cheapo dvd player would be the way to go, save that much more for the pc.... if your really looking for good though, you'll want to go with a din sized higher end unit made by a car stereo company.... alpine being one of the best..... but this could cost half as much as doing a pc in the first place.....
