    Using a non-carpc toucscreen

    I was wondering if it was possible to rig another touchscreen lcd monitor to work with a computer. You could use regular AV cables to hook up the video, but how could you get the touchscreen to work?
    A monitor like this

    Any help is appreciated!

    As long as it has a video input you should be okay. You must have video in to go from the pc to the monitor. Most car stereos with touchscreens do not have video in and I am not aware of any companies such as sony, pioneer, kenwood, etc. that make one. Xenarc and Lilliput are generally your best options (at least that I know of). But you could use a touchscreen that is meant for indoor use (http://www.newegg.com/Store/SubCateg...creen-Monitors). You would just have to figure out how and where to mount it as well as deciding on how to power it (such as an ac-dc inverter/adapter). Good luck.

    You open up the headunit, reverse-engineer the touchscreen to work on a PC and make any necessary circuits and write drivers if necessary.
    And you lose touch-control of the headunit in the process.

    The short answer for most of us is "You don't."
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    I was thinking some time ago. That it could be possible to use a unit that has 800x480pixels and a connector for one of those gps-boxes. Those boxes are controller by the touchscreen too so there must be a touchscreen-out on those units. My only problem was converting the dvd player to one with usb.
