    Connector to join two vga cables?

    Just got my 8" Lilliput and am looking to test it in the car for positioning. I have a nice thin and flexible vga cable I can use to extend the Lilliput cable to where the Carputer will be. But I need something to join the two male ends together. Does anyone know where I can buy that?

    Thanks.

    Right - they're called gender changers. You want Male-to-Male. Just Google it up.

    Is it definitely male to male? I never know which is which - they both stick out

    Now I just need to work out how they name them on a cheap place I found (www.a1netusa.com). If I want to join two male VGA cable ends - do I need a female to female connector or a male to male connector? Their web site is totally useless to work out which I want since it doesn't have individual pictures. They also have DB15 and HDB15 versions and I don't know which is VGA!

    EDIT: DO NOT BUY FROM THIS COMPANY. THE PERSON THAT RUNS IT IS AN ******* AND WILL BE RUDE AND OBSTRUCTIVE IF YOU EVER HAVE TO TALK TO HIM. I CANCELLED MY ORDER AND WOULD WILLINGLY PAY TWICE AS MUCH TO BUY STUFF ELSEWHERE...
