    Considering the following carputer setup and TV tuner screen

    http://www.mp3playerstore.com/stuff_...ecial/7-tv.htm

    Anyone who's installed a tv tuner screen in ther car please post how well it works and your reception.

    After reading alot on these forums I have a few chioces I can go for my master carputer setup. Any input on what you think I should choose would be appreciated.

    Route1:
    -- Epia 800 with VGA out to 7'' lilliput VGA TFT touchscreen
    -- Stereo for FM tuner, USB TV tuner or TV TUNER CARD.
    -- USB GPS
    -- Internet via Sprint PCS vision phone and data cable

    Route2:
    -- Epia 800 with S-video out to Non-VGA 7'' Unnamed TFT Touchscreen
    -- FM/TV tuner card for output to speakers and touchscreen.
    -- USB GPS
    -- Internet via Sprint PCS vision phone and data cable

    Route3:
    -- Epia 800 with S-video out to this monitor with integrated tv tuner and separate ad-on touchscreen kit.

    -- Stereo for FM
    -- USB GPS
    -- Internet through Sprint PCS vision phone and data cable

    Route4: A combination of routes 1 through 3.


    I'd appreciate you opinion of which choice I should choose.

    only thing i see wrong with what you listed is the place you want to get the screen from. I personaly wouldnt shop at mp3playerstore.com. They got some pretty bad ratings over at http://www.resellerratings.com/

    Exclamation Any others opinions of which route I should choose.

    GPS is a priority for me so I'm leaning towards a VGA input screen because that has greater text detail. Can anyone recommend which way they would go?

    You can still get away with using a composite input if you use the right GPS software. ie. CoPilot.
