    Yes, BUT...

    The video display will be of less-than-ideal quality. PC displays don't look too pretty on a TV, which is essentially what this unit is.
    Also, the touchscreen will not control the PC.
    Lastly, you need to output the PC display to cmposite video, which may or may not be an easy thing to pull off, depending on your hardware.
    Ok let me better explain: Take a unit designed for the DOUBLE DIN Slot - with touch screen - install that into dash. Build Car Pc - plug into the unit via aux or whatever the input might be. Is this possible?
    If your PC's video hardware can output composite video, then yes.

    I guess the better question is what do i look for in a unit?
    Ideally, a touchscreen with VGA input.

    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    There's a double-din touchscreen on the way from Panda innovations that I'm looking to buy -- read about that here http://store.pandainnovations.com/Articles.asp?ID=121

    Not bad! It would be nice to get a standalone one and mod it with a real VGA screen. It just takes a bit more research.
