    iPhone control external touchscreen now possible!

    Just saw this video on the front page of hardforum. If they can make an iPhone into a table like Microsoft Surface, you could do the same thing to a touch screen mounted in your dash.
    Check it out!

    Perhaps....it depends on how the technology works. It is already possible to do what you see there using Veency, although maybe not the multitouch.

    I'm a little suspicious that you must use both a jailbreak and a special app.

    Anyhow, it would be very cool if you could do this WITHOUT additional hardware besides the screen itself. Time will tell.

    I'm checking on the links now and maybe it doesn't work any more...

    It used to be that you would install screensplitr and veency on the phone. Then, you connect to your phone on your browser and the phone screen came up in the browser window.

    Now, they have a product called iDemo that looks like it does the same thing but is pay for play. http://www.plutinosoft.com/idemo

    You can download a demo of it that works for a minute or so to try it out. Not sure if it will go full screen or not.
