    Looks great! Good to see more exposure out there. I can't wait to see how the installation of the TS drivers goes though. Hopefully you guys have better luck than most people.

    Just got the touchscreen working under OS X 10.4 Tiger. There is still some issue with coordinate registration...can't get the cursor to the top of the screen, but everything else seems fine (click and drag selection, moving stuff around, etc...)

    We'll post the installation steps and screen shots by the end of the day.

    That looks like the famous P1900 in the 5th picture down. I'm assuming you are planning on plugging that motorized LCD into the P1900?

    I might switch my plans to that motorized screen! It's cool to have that popout.

    Yes...it is the P1900. We just got both units on Wednesday...and have not had a chance to hook it up yet :-) I have to say the instructions for hooking up the P1900 is SO much better than what came with the screen.

    However...there is something endearing when the instruction is "...the monitor should be avoid of direct beam of the sunshine..." :-)

    I'm not saying I would do any better translating our English into Chinese...but it does make trying to figure out what some of the button do a bit of a challenge!

    800x600 for now...appears a bit squashed. Will explore the other resolutions and compare this weekend. Have you (has anyone?) found a good GPS option for the Mac?

    Do you mind giving us a link to the P1900 in your article?
    P1900 - http://www.mp3car.com/store/product_...products_id=94

    We also sell the same screen with a no dead pixel guarantee for $50 less.
    MTS12000 - http://www.mp3car.com/store/product_...roducts_id=103

    Any extra leads to the store we get to help pay forum expenses are greatly appreciated. We just spent a boat load of money on the new server and a hosting upgrade.
