    Monitor question help

    Ok Hello everyone,

    I am a little confused as to why lilliput and xenarc would not already have monitors that would connect to the cars power source. Why do we have to cut and splice a cigarette charger to get what i think should already be included. Please keep in mind i am a newbie and just stating my observation. OK enough venting. Is there a touch screen that is available that already has this type of connection built in. i have searched but i cannot get a clear answer. Thank you in advance for your response.

    Uhhhh.
    Xenarc screens can connect directly to a vehicle's electrical system (assuming it's 12v).
    Lilliput screens include an egg-shaped regulator to allow this, as well, although I understand that the "egg" is pretty low-quality...

    Or are you wanting to plug the unit into a cigarette lighter/power jack?
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    I thought I remembered the Xenarc's coming with a cig adapter also.

    is cutting off the cig lighter plug really that big of a deal?

    I actually like that they come with a prewired plug, because it allows you to test everything out before you hardwire it in.

    some people will never be happy. if they included a power cable with stripped ends then people would complain that it wasn't stripped enough, others would complain that there's no ring terminal on the ground wire...

    just be happy they designed it to run on 12v and include a power cable that's easy to modify for custom installs :/

    others would complain that there wasn't someone included in the box to wire it all up for you.
