    Splice into RGB input of factory LCD?

    I'm looking for a way to use the analog RGB of the built-in screen of my MINI Cooper, sort of like a KVM switch, that would let me switch between the Nav system and my Mac mini. Has anyone seen something like this for use in a car?

    Send a PM to Mutilator here on the forums, he has a Mini Cooper S Works and is trying to do a similar thing, he has found an add-on module to allow it to work.

    I always add this to posts I see where people want to use the built in screen: You realize that text and detail from the Mini will be fuzzy on the built in screen, right?

    Post #3 explains it with pictures.
