    cnagot5onit,

    Basically you have three ways. 1) Go headless and wire the sound card to an amp, controll volume thru PC 2) Use an FM modulator to connect the PC to you head unit (conects between the antenna lead) 3) If your head unit is capable, you could connect the PC directly to the cd changer slot with one of the adapters you can find referenced here.

    If your head unit has aux input, that is the best method.

    It is hard to drag. Hard to right click. Hard to play games. Hard to hit the X or _ buttons.

    The touchscreen also creates more glare and significantly degrades the brightness of the screen.

    I love the touch screen in most cases. However, I do have a wireless mouse and keyboard in the car. Touchscreen is great, but mouse is definately more precise and faster.

    Yea, touchscreen is easier for the majority of everything in Mediacar. But, like most lilliput owners, the bottom right corner has a spot that wont calibrate correctly. So when i'm looking for a name/address/phone number in Outlook, or the little window pops up saying "you are connected to "X" network", the easiest way to get rid of it is to use the mouse and click the "X", yes, while I'm driving.
