    JVC display or something else?

    i was looking to get a new deck. thinking of one of these....
    but what do you guys think? i wouldnt mind a touchscreen either but i think it would get dirty. basically need something to watch dvds, videos, ipod hookup to it ect. the more options the better.

    JVC KD-NX5000 In-Dash Single Din Navigation System

    JVC:

    The JVC KD-NX5000 takes navigation and connectivity to a whole new level. The KD-NX5000 has a built-in 40GB hard drive; 16GB are dedicated to the navigation software while the other 24GB are for the music server. Getting from point A to point B has never been easier. Simply type in the address, search through the 13 million POI, or search by phone number and JVC will get you there. If it's a long trip there is no need to bring numerous CDs because the KD-NX5000 has plenty of storage for music on its music server. If you are looking for a stereo that does it all this is it. From navigation to video to Bluetooth* the KD-NX5000 is the complete solution.

    I think that it would be a poor choice for a PC display. VGA is the way to go.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    Have you ever seen a PC display pumped tyhrough a composite or svideo connection?
    It's marginal at best. Search the forums on this topic. IT's been repeated over and over and over again.

    For a crystal-clear display, VGA is the way to go.

    I'll second that. When I just started thinking about putting a computer in my car I bought a $1200 flip out DVD player with touch screen thinking it'll be a good investment if I got a carputer in the future. Well 6 months later I paid $450 for a Xenarc VGA screen. So it was a big waste of money because the picture sucked, plus the touchscreen won't work with the computer.

    mp3car.com is a site for car COMPUTER enthusiasts. If you aren't interested in a CarPC, then spend your money on that if you like. It just is not what we are here for.
