    Looking for In dash vga + radio lcd

    As my project come closer to the end (I know it never ends), I am thinking of upgrading my screen, as I am all about a professional look. I currently have a regular composite lcd (Kinda broken as it is, which may affect the pic quality), and am thinking of switching to a vga for better picture. Problem here is that I cant do this unless I find one with a built in radio, or get creative with where I mount my carputers cd drive as I would have to free up the 2nd din. Thanks for any links you guys can throw my way.

    Either do the lilliput/Xenarc indash mod Or wait for the indash xenarc to come out sometime in the next 100 years. Either way your not going to find one with an am/fm tuner.
    Mine needs to be updated.

    I think he means a multimedia headunit/monitor that does VGA.

    My CarPC setup does not include any headunit at all. Perhaps consider buying a seperate USB radio tuner? the low sound output from the PC then goes into an amp and amplified to the speakers.

    Car PC v1 - 1999 - 2000
    DOS 6.22 - MPXF - 2x16 LCD - 6.4GB
    Car PC v2 - 2002 - 2006
    XP - 7" wide/touch - GPS - Tank batt relay - 100GB
    Car PC v3 - 2008
    XP - 7" wide/touch - GPS - 802.11g - FM/XM - OBDII - WWW

    Yeah sorry if I wasnt clear. I have the sony XAV-7W, which is a 7in in dash lcd with fm/am built in. There is no cd drive, which is fine since we have our cd-roms. I was just hoping to find an equivelant one with vga outputs instead. Thanks for the info guys, guess I have some things to decide on now.

    Althought not VGA, see my recent post on display findings

    I've just bought a AM/FM radio with an in-dash 7" motorised display to boot... not received yet though
