    The lilliput touchscreen connect to the standard VGA connector - your monitor's plug.
    The touchscreen part uses USB - which most devices plug into nowadays
    and it takes power from the mobo/other too. Hope that helped!

    To modify a part of it - auto-on button, or simply so they can mount it how they went. If they want it to be COMPLETELY flush with there dash, they gotta take it out - plus alot of installs can't fit the entire unit.

    weeeelllll, you could do that, and some do, but fabrication adds that special touch.

    Because it doesn't look like it belongs in the car. Some people want their screens to appear OEM (original equipment manufacturer), as if the car came with the screen installed.

    If you want the screen to look like it came with the car, you have to take it out of the bezel and embed it in the dash.

    huh? How are you gonna have it slide out of the dash without taking the case off and putting it in a new case?

    Yes. There is a link to it in the thread called "everything you ever wanted to know about your lilliput"
