    I'm having a hard time figuring out what to go with; what do you guys use? I want to put one into my 2003 Tacoma. I want to do VGA in as well w/640x480. my PC will run FreeBSD 5.1.

    Thanks !!

    The best you can do is to buy a TFT visor.
    Check ebay.

    Sunvisor monitors

    We sell Sunvisor monitors (6" and 7" widescreen TFT LCD ), but no VGA option is available.

    check this page: www.allcam.biz/products/car_monitor.html

    Thanks

    What are you trying to do? Are you wanting to put a 7 inch vga screen that you can buy seperately (plenty of those around...) into your visor?

    I want to cut a hole into my visor and inset a 7" vga screen into it. I like the idea of it being in the visor because then if you look into my truck you'd have no idea I had it in there. I've measured out the screen, and a 6 inch would fit nicely., but a 7" lcd would fit also i think.

    Thanks

    This is something I plan to do soon.

    I have been doing some preliminary checks and have a hit on some things you need to allow for.

    First is the weight, even with only 200g added, every visor I have checked droops down under its own weight whilst stationary. Stiffening up the hinge side will obviously fix this...........

    Second is cooling. To use a TFT in a visor I am pretty sure you will not get away with simply embedding it since there will be no airflow. Has anyone seen the commercial versions? I have an idea on how to achieve good cooling without cutting holes in the back of the visor, but I'll wait until I have tested it before recommending it

    If you have enough room for one of these (http://digitalww.com/LCD_TM_703X_BLACK.htm) I can make it VGA. Just like with TM-701L.

    is it possible to use a screen that has Svideo/RCA in for a monitor? I'm curious if you could use aim/surf the web on a low quality video connection.
