    I would use a 4" LCD connected to a camera in the side view mirror, so I woulnd't have to use the mirrors
    Molded Screen:
    [++++++----] 60%
    DVD & Rest of audio:
    [++++++----] 60%


    2004 Accord Coupe, Satin Silver K24 5 Speed powa!

    7" Lilliput Screen, non touch with lots of Bondo
    NTB DVD player or put XBOX in car

    thanks everyone for the ideas.... all have been good check this out

    this makes me laugh... ever been driving ahead of some moron that has his/her brights on? FREGGIN TICKS ME OFF.. I meean, what do you do, taps your breaks... (like they know what the heck that means, muchless they probably think your a moron too.

    So... what about putting the 4"lcd in the back (computer running in dual monitor mode or something) with some screen flipping them off saying dim your lights (or something to that effect...

    ODBII I decided would be pointless, I have no mods on my engin, nor do I want any, and Like I could see what the screen would say...

    Back seat screen could be cool, but you'd get a crick in th neck looking down, so headrest was an idea, but have you been in the back of a Tundra, that would be like having a screen in your face... ahhhhh

    thoughts? more suggestions, thought provoking anything?

    I wouldn't put the 4" LCD in back, as people own't be able to read it, and you'd get in trouble with the PoPos

    How about the Phaeton copy idea?

    Anyways, this thing shows arrows for were to turn, and in how many feet to turn. You can do a lot with it. And you don't need a TS
