    flip down VGA LCD?

    Is ther such a thing as a Flip-down VGA LCD?

    I really don't have space for a LCD on my dash, and don't want to modify the dash any. However, I do have a lovely spot in between my visors where a flip down LCD would fit. But they're all composite (TV). Anyone seen any flip down VGA screens? Or does anyone know of any housing that will let a VGA fit in it?

    Depends on your budget. You could buy one of those AudioVox or some such flip down displays, hack it up, and put a VGA LCD in there. Not exactly cost effective, but it would work.

    nah

    I'm broke. hahaha

    Maybe I could do that, and then put the NTSC screen somewhere else, like on the side of my fish tank so my fish could watch TV. haha

    Does your car model have the option of an overhead console? If so, you might be able to modify one to accomodate the monitor.

    well

    Well, its got this 7 or 8 inch wide plastic holder up between the visors. Its a spot where you can stick your sunglasses or tissues or whatever. A flip down monitor could easily fit there. But all flip-down's I see aren't VGA.

    I'm thinking about getting a blank housing then adding a VGA monitor to it somehow.

    Is this what your dash looks like?

    Xenarc used to have a flip-down 7" VGA touchscreen. The store here used to sell it, but I don't see it in their listings.

    I'm certain if you search around you can find it. IIRC, it was a 7".
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?
