    upside down?

    i was wondering if i could mount my display upside down? ihave a mac mini intel and i was wondering if there was a program to invert the display and mouse input. the way my car is set up it would be better to come out and go down. i have this screen: http://store.mp3car.com/Lilliput_GL7..._p/mon-020.htm

    i have it set up the other way now and it hits the top of my dash when it comes out and i was wondering if any one has done this or anything like that. Thanks

    I'm sure theres software available for that, used to use something called pivot pro, many laptops now adays have this utility built into the drivers themselves & I haven't had to use a 3rd party app in a long time, but they gotta still be out there....

    This is a standard feature of OS X and we have used this in one of our cars already:

    I am just not sure whether you could properly calibrate the touch screen in this situation - probably not.

    Touchscreen will of course stay calibrated the way it was before, but the mouse should move properly in relation to the displayed image (not the physical screen).

    I do not think there is a way of re-calibrating the touch screen if you rotate the image by 180. Technically it should be possible, but I am afraid the drivers do not support this. But I may be wrong on this - upside down or not, I do not use TS at all.

    For those with other OS's, many graphics card utilitites allow rotating the sceen to any position. I think the Touch drivers will work properly if you recalibrate and touch the dots where it asks. My TS drivers were working backwards on the first install until I ran the cal and they have been right ever since.
