    VGA cable length

    well after much consideration I took the plunge and bought a 7" VGA touchscreen liliput, but now I'm wondering I'm going to have my computer in the trunk and the screen up front. where can I buy that long of a VGA cable, and can you run one that long? thanks!

    At the radio station I work at, we routinely run VGA extensions of 100feet and more. The trick is to use a high quality cable, and as few of them as you can. It is better to run one 100' piece instead of a 50' and two 25' pieces together. Most everything availible at your local store (CompUSA, Fry's...etc...) will be okay if used one or two at a time. For anything longer I recommend shopping around at a store that specializes in cables like this. With the right equipment, VGA will look perfect over great distances.
