    03 Lincoln LS w/ OEM Navigation

    I just recently purchased an 03 Lincoln LS with the THX Navigation (touchscreen) in the dash. Is there anyway to use the existing screen to run a CarPC?

    I can't vouch for the Lincoln, but most GPS units use a low res monitor, so you wouldn't be able to read small text, and the touchscreen is not carpc ready... is it possible, sure... are you willing to go the million miles that it will take... probably not... but the resolution will be the deal breaker in the end...

    you might have a better chance of upgrading the screen to a VGA and using a computer based GPS instead of the car's unit... nav software is WAY cheaper than the new nav discs for you car...
