Introduction and question about Car LCD
great forum for this hobby.
My name is David and my two major hobbies are Golf and RC helis.
love going to fun flys and thought it is time to find directions easier.
So, I just got some GPS software and a GPS receiver (Garmin18) for my laptop, even though I haven't played with it much, I'm hocked and it must be permanent in my car (rather truck F150), because I don't want to take the laptop with me at all times.
I looked around for in-car GPS systems, but all the once I liked were in the $1000.00 range.
So I decided to build my own carputer (seem to be able to do a lot more (mp3, dvd, car info etc.) for a lot less money.
I have not spend much time on researching the hardware, since I figured no matter what computer I go with, I will need a screen to see the information I need.
I really like the idea of touch screen and I see that a lot of you use the Lilliput 7" TS LCD that goes for about $280.00
I found THIS
screen on ebay and can't seem to find any information on this forum about it.
is this a good screen or is it worth looking into spending some $60.00 extra for the Lilliput?
any suggestions and/or comments are welcome.
After I decide on the screen, I will start asking lot's of questions about hardware.
