    Fairly simple question relating to touch screens

    Hi there,

    I have just purchased a carputer (still waiting for delivery hence this question) and need to know if my touchscreen double din DVD player's touchscreen will work with it?

    If it won't then what do I need to do/buy in order for it to work?

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    PS. Please keep the answers simple as I'm a COMPLETE noob, much obliged.

    No. (I'll expand that to be Highly unlikely)

    A new VGA screen with a standard USB touchscreen

    Bad Mod.

    Point newbies to the FAQs: http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/advfaq.php

    Although, I think that this is yet another example of how the link to the FAQs is completely buried in the forum navbar across the top. If the mods can't locate it, how do you expect the newbies to find it?
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    Thanks for the help people, I really appreciate it. By the way I did already check the FAQ's but I couldn't find an answer.

    It's all about purchasing a Space Navigator (damn expensive!) then.

    Or a Griffin Powermate - less expensive. Remember that your text will look fuzzy and the screen display won't be as nice or vivid as a VGA screen.

    I guess I'm going to have to live with that because I don't want to spend more money buying a new screen.

    How about this: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/7-inch-Touch-S...ht_8323wt_1163

    It's called a touch screen panel kit. Would this work with my HU?
