    In dash lcd suggestions?

    Ok i'm looking for a indash lcd... doesn't need to be touch though. I only need it to hookup to my ipod so people in the back can watch a movie.

    Any suggestions?

    What provisions does an iPod have for external video display?
    None, I believe.
    So how do you intend to get display from the iPod to ANY screen, whether it's the one TouchHunter suggests or any other screen?
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    On right hand side in Ipod features table : "Plays video or photo slideshows on TV via the optional Dock"
    Seems to be an S-video hookup.
    Old Systems retired due to new car
    New system at design/prototype stage on BeagleBoard.

    Well, I'll be damned!
    I stand corrected. My girlfriend's iPod doesn't have a dock to have the video connection...

    If that's the case, then the touchscreent hat TouchHunter recommended is probably what you need. That or something very comparable.

    Awesome! thats exactly what i'm looking for!! thanks!!!

    Couple questions though
    -Is it vga?
    -How would i hook it up to a camera?
    -do i need to fabricate anything?
    -How would i hook up a gps system to this? (and is there some sort of monthly cost for that?)

    I also need a new headunit that can play dvd's. The ebay seller is selling one with a dvd headunit here for about 300 after shipping.
    http://cgi.ebay.com/In-Dash-7-TFT-Mo...ayphotohosting

    Is that a good deal? is that headunit half decent? or should i buy a something seperate?

    thanks!

    EDIT:

    I realized there might be a problem... check out my situation



    The screen and dvd player would go into a recessed location so the monitor cant fully deploy because of the heating and ac controls... is that a problem?
