    Xenarc/Lilli VGA resolutions

    Forgive the newbie if I didn't for the right terms, but here is my question:

    Will a xenarc and lilliput run at the same resolutions? Are the touchscreen controllers and drivers about the same?

    The reason I ask is that I would like to share one computer with several cars. I have one car I only use on the weekends. I would like to just remove the computer case and put that into the other car.

    I am putting a Xenarc 700TSV and a griffin powermate into a console I am building for my Avalanche. I was thinking I would buy another lilliput touchscreen and griffin powermate and build that into that in a new dash/console for my other car. (Hate to spend another $500+ on a screen I don’t use all that often) I want to be able to just unplug the 6 or so wires (power, VGA, USB…) and stick the CPU into the other car I am driving.

    If I have the mini ITX computer setup to run at like 800x480 (drivers downloaded) – will both xenarc and lilliput display this OK? Will the CPU freak out when it boots and sees the Lilliput touchscreen (rather than the xenarc touchscreen from the last boot up in the other car)

    Should I just sell my console I am making with the xenarc and get two Lilliput screens?

    Thanks!
    I am a newbie trying to outfit a couple cars with new custom consoles and mini ITX. Click here for my 2003 Chevy Avalanche project.

    Hey Gadget, funny finding you over here.

    I too would like to know the differences between the Xenarc and Lilliput. Both seem to have the same specs, but quite a price difference. Any experience out there to helps us Mobile PC newbies?

    I just got my Xenarc 700TSV and its insanely bright and the view angle is awesome and the touch screen is right on the money. Seems very very sturdy too. I haven't messed with a lili but this seems like the Xenarc is a very well built screen. Can't wait to put it in my car

    I was hoping someone who actually had both screens would answer this, but since nobody has here's an educated guess...

    1) Both will display fine. All your computer knows (and needs to know) is that it's hooked up to an 800x480 60htz screen.

    2) Touchscreens drivers... may or may not work. Totally depends on your drivers, the OS, and random factors I've never figured out. Just swapping USB inputs sometimes works fine for me, sometimes gets me all sorts of "new device found" and the like. I'd say your odds were 2 to 1 against, but no way of knowing unless you actually try.

    3) Buy 2 Lilliput? No, get one of each and then do a long and in-depth comparison between the two (specifically with regards to car PCs, brightness, sunlight readability, ease of custom dash installation, etc) and then post all your results here for the rest of us
