    Lilliput Cable Question

    I want to beable to use this monitor in both my vehicles. In my first vehicle I would only need to input via VGA. The second vehicle I would want to use the VGA & RCA inputs. I need to order additional cables, but I couldn't tell what I needed. It looks like there are two cables:
    One that goes from VGA to a round plug that I belive plugs into the lcd
    The second has a usb connection and RCAs
    I couldn't where the power gets plugged into the monitor at, but I saw the car adapter with a plug on it.
    Here's my best guess at what I'll need:
    An extra one of the first that will let me hook up the VGA and an extra car adapter for the power.
    I couldn't tell if the power got hooked up through the other cable that has the USB & RCA cables-so I'm hoping I won't need one of those.
    Thanks-
    Rick

    Did you try looking in the operation manual lol Side panel jacks diagram. Number 1 is the input for the power.

    You simply need:

    1 x 12v car adapter
    1x vga cable

    Thanks for your help. I don't actually have the screen yet or the manual. I'm going to order and just wanted to know what else I needed.

    Oh sorry m8. Assumed you had one.

    Just thought this may be useful for you to know depending on what the setup is going to be in the 2nd car:- you will only get sound from the speaker when using composite inputs. No sound when using VGA.

    Thanks for the information. Fortunately, I'm not planning on using the internal speaker.

    Didn't want the sound either and thought this thing gets hot and the touchscreen I/F is right next to the damn magnet - doh! I know what, I'll disable the sound in the control panel. It doesn't work!!! I can set it to Mute ON or Mute Off and I still get sound if I plug in the audio lead. Ended up turning the volume right down instead.

    Another question-What cable does the touch screen connect to the pc through? I'll want to use the touch screen in both locations as well. I found a picture that looks like the VGA cable splits off with a usb connector for the touch screen. Now it looks like the other USB cable with the RCA supplies power to the monitor. I'm guessing I'd have to hook up both cables-VGA cable for VGA and Touchscreen and the USB/RCA cable to power the monitor. Is this correct?

    The monitor gets the power from the car adaptor which plugs directly into the monitor. Doesnt matter whether your using VGA input, composite input or both.

    The touchscreen is connected to the pc by USB. Yes the VGA cable splits off with a USB connector.

    The cable with the 3 rcas is not a USB cable. It does not supply power to the monitor.

    Thanks for the information. I was just going by what I saw at this page:

    Maybe the 12volt power on the RCA is a power out of the monitor and not into like I thought. I thought the RCA cable had a USB connector on the end that plugged into the monitor.

    I have a Lilliput with Touchscreen, and the cable I have with the 3 RCA's (2x Video, 1x Audio) Also has a 12V DC connector. According to the manual it's 12V DC Input.

    The screen also has a 12V DC in on the side of it. Giving you the option of plugging the power adapter direct into the screen, or into the 3 RCA cable.

    The end of the cable has a USB connector, but that's for convenience from Lilliput. Nice neat compact connector for the 3 rca's and alternative 12V DC in.

    I eventually intend using that to power the monitor. Not the supplied Cig Adapter. Much neater wiring with all cables hidden behind the dash.
