    can't say i have seen any one do it.. most touch screen software will allow you to detect and setup multiple touch screen panels and lcd displays.

    Yep, it should work fine; not sure what you mean b "control driver's side over passenger side", you control only the display you actually touch, unless they are mirrored - then either could control both screen contents, so the passenger could take control too.

    I think you mean cloned.

    Mirrored would be interesting.

    your getting into the stuff beyond the monitor.

    remember-- a monitor is only a screen. it displays a picture. that picture is sent to it from other hardware. the other hardware determines what goes on the screen. if that other hardware was a carpc with 2 video outputs, then yes. you would need to set the screens up as a extended desktop, and then you could run 2 different browser windows on each screen. though if you use only one browser(IE, firefox, etc) then you would need to manually drag the second window over to the 2nd screen because most os's only keep track of where the window was last closed, not how many windows were opened, and where they were last placed.
