    That looks like one of the VGA->TV matrox cables that basically activates the onboard TVout on the card for that Head.

    Agreed, that doesn't look like a converter. Just an adapter for specific video cards.
    You could use one of the Viewsonic adapters.
    My notes on it are in this thread.

    Most newer laptops now have either an S-Video output (mostly) or a composite output (sometimes). With S-Video, you can get a simple adapter to make it composite, which is probably what you will need for your indash screen.

    Did you make sure that the output was Pal, or NTSC on the Laptop TVOUT settings, to match what your TV does?

    focus, did you try that adapter yet? S-Vid to Composite adapters only show in black and white, but I haven't tried VGA to composite yet.

    Who knows, it might work.
