    Gameview screen is nice...

    I drove down to frys today to pickup a new soldering iron and some other crap and right before the checkout line they had a whole pile of the 5.6" gameview lcds for $49.00! Well, I could not resist and bought one to see how it looks and I am very impressed... I didnt know these were such nice, bright screens... Anyway, I am really glad fry's is a 40 minute drive...

    Take a look

    yeah looks nice.

    are you gonna tear it out of its casing? ....

    wonder how a gps would look on this, thats what i really want the screen for....

    i tried to find that over at outpost but didnt see it.

    what did you do to hook up the power? i see you have it opened up there.

    I think GPS would look ok, I can read small font just barely so if you were to bump up font size should be no problem.. I am going tear it out eventually... probably put it in the glovebox. I think outpost got WAY backordered on the screens...

    We don't have Fry's here in River City. You think you would be willing to ship two of those down here? They would make excellent monitors for the head rests. I'm going to run VGA to the Xenarc for the driver (easier to read GPS) but I could use those for DVD playback in the back seat.

    I ripped out the jack on the front of the display (the one that is supposed to power the PS1) and used it to plug into the power input jack... I ran the ground to the 5 volt line and the positive to the 12 volt line... My little tiny powersupply in my little box didnt have enough poop to power it up, but a regular supply works just fine! I plan on using a 7.5V regulator for in car use!
