    Newbie here, need advice

    So I wanna install a carputer in my car (93 Honda Prelude). I've been pondering lots of things, but the one thing that has me stumped is the display.

    I figured I would go with a small ceiling mount touchscreen, but I can't find any, plus I think the base would be too big to fit in the small space of open ceiling I have...

    Are those Lilliput in dash units any good? I might have to go with one of those.

    Also, how do I power it? It hooks up directly to the car's 12v system, right? Do I need an ITPS for it to clean up all the noise in the power system?

    Welcome to the board

    Is a 93 the same as 92? http://digitalww.com/TM701L_install9.htm

    You can connect it to a 12V line just like your head unit. I have these monitors in any configuration you want: Standard Video + Touch Kit, VGA + Touch kit, etc...

    You can start with a regular TM701L + TSK and then upgrade to VGA later.

    Email me and we can discuss this further.
