    HiJack - I'm so excited to see the pics/vids and so glad you are doing this.

    I wish I could figure out a way to use the Mimo with the iPhone. And that's it. There has to be a way - right? Maybe not. I hate being ignorant on this stuff.

    I used pliers to squash them down until they fit in the connectors.
    This in effect made a "custom male spade" connector.
    I used a tad of shrink tube up to the makeshift spade to make sure it didn't short on anything.

    If this was a final install you might want to block off the unused pins, label stuff, or make a quick release harness using some male/female crimp connectors and a few inches of spare wire.
    How do you go about charging the battery though? Also, what about batteries for like power tools, you think those would be as effiecient as Laptop batteries? Im going to go ahead and buy a voltmeter, but let me ask, how do you find ground, will be be the one thats zero or something?

    Someone will find a way to make the touchscreen work with an iPhone, this seems to be a huge thing right now (I think im the only one thats 100% anti-apple). My little brotehr recently built a MAC rig that has 8GB of RAM and some good awful huge graphics card that so big he had to cut a hole in the back of the case for it to fit, and thats all he talks about, I dont even want to eat the fruit because Im so sick of it. Anyways, lol, back to the screen.

    Your little bro needs to post that!

    Wish more iPhone users were playing around with this stuff. There has to be a way to tweak a cord to make this work on this monitor. I'm anxious.

    I keep envisioning the Mimo without cords. If the Wireless USB is successful, will you try to crack it open to see about nuking the cords or doing something internal to pretty that up? Course then how would it be powered.

    If you don't mind spending a few extra bucks, you should look into getting an external lithium ion battery that's used for charging USB devices or an external battery for PSPs (something like this: http://www.uxcell.com/external-lithi...00-p-1436.html) - note: I have no experience with any of these and only spent 2 minutes googling before finding that one - there's probably better

    You wouldn't have to worry about a DC-DC power supply or something to charge the laptop battery you're currently planning on using.

    This project is really neat, I can't wait for videos and such of it

    With most standard monitors you would probably want tinted windows. You could also buy a sunlight readable display if you don't want to tint your windows.

    It will run smoothly at first, but after awhile the screen will freeze and you have to unplug it. It seems if there is alot going on with the screen then it starts to lag. I have to assume because something moving requires more information to be passed through the wireless and the reciever or hub is missing info. Also people in the past have stated that these USB screens are of equal or better quality when it comes to picture. I 100% dissagree, VGA, DVI, HDMI, are the best looking outputs.

    I got the HD Camera so I will make the video today!

    damn..

    it probably have something to do with the bandwidth.. or heat (if it works well sometime)

    GUWH204KIT has wider bandwidth (I am not sure is this device designed for multimedia purposes..)

    does mimo screen have own power connector or does it take power from the USB port?
    it means helluva power consumption if it takes from the USB.. (it probably heats the USB HUB.. that might causes the errors)
