    It's not VGA so the quality will not be acceptable to read anything on the screen, especially if you use GPS. You'll be able to get away with it if you make the font VERY large and use it only for mp3/video playback, but if you want quality and clarity - VGA LCD is your friend.

    Because you wont beable to read the text. Everything will be a blur. If you dont believe me go ahead and buy it. See for yourself.

    I'm not doubting you, I'm just curious to as of why you did not think it was good.

    Not everyone can afford a vga screen, but for composite I would go for a 7" instead of a 5.6". Text can be fairly readable on a 7", but any smaller and you are going to have a hard time reading it.

    you'll also have to deal with stretched text.
