pity about the postage cost to Australia $100 :angrymob:
almost makes it not worth getting.....
if only i was in the us
EDIT: They sposedly have a deal going on where u get free postage for items over $200..... hopefully it applies to international orders too!
For fellow Europeans who are cursed (blessed!!) with owning a BMW e39,
you might be interested in a 16:9 x 8 inch to fit in the radio/MID hole .. I posted this on digital-car .. I'm not a dealer, but I don't mind getting a "club" together ... http://www.digital-car.co.uk/forum/s...d.php?p=143391
THe only concern I have with this screen is the operating temps. It says -20 to 60 degrees. I dont know about you but my car get much hotter than 60 degrees during the summer and I usually like it warmer anyway in the winter so the heat comes on. The 60 degree thresh hold seems a little low and it can probably with stand a little more.
Just my concerned mind being overly concerned I'm sure.
I would guess that is in Centigrade... Which is somewhere around 140F
It is 60C which equals 140F. I life in FL and my truck is so hot, and the screen is so hot from the sun when i get in that it can almost burn you, and my screen works 100% perfectly in the heat! I don't have any cooling on the screen at all and have NEVER had a problem with it. Don't worry about heat!

Just about talked myself into buying one to try out.
power to the monitor?
A quick question here for Punkerguy... How are you supplying power to the monitor? Do you have it running off of your Battery/Alternator, is it powered through your carputer, or through a power inverter?
I am running mine off the carputer M2-ATX power supply. But you could run it off your alternator or an inverter as well.. but I think running it off the carputer is the easiest. That way, when the carputer shutdown controller cuts power to the computer, it cuts power to the screen as well.

It was time for a new toy. Picked up the cheapy night vision camera and a 4 channel amp while I was at it. They have free shipping for carts over $200. They seem to have fairly good pricing.
