    i assume the 2nd question there, is that ur asking if you can control the aircon with the pc, and yes it is possible, its on a thread on this forum somewhere, u'd have to search for it

    and where to put the touchscreen? wherever you have space for it, in the console.., on top of the dash, wherever you can make it fit

    No room in dash, here is an idea

    Welcome Madeira. I didn't want to hack my dash so here is how my screen has been mounted for about 8 months now. Some folks on this board frown on anything not mounted in the dash but I don't give a damn. This works fine for me.

    Where to mount my screen?

    JimmyFitz, thats actually a great setup, makes it that much easier to remove the system, and you dont have to worry about hacking up your dash and stuff like that..plus you can turn the screen towards you, or the passanger can turn the screen towards them..i kind of like that.

    Yes. It has several advantages. I ended up taking one of the links out of the post so it is lower now, but looks about the same.
