    You should check this thread out. There was a guy there who figured out how to connect a PC to the 13-pin RGB connection on the back of this monitor. I would get this screen myself if I know how to do the same

    That's Great to Know RGB Connection

    Thanks Phat Chap! That's great to know as they sell these monitors on ebay. I will pass the word on the RGB connection. I also see that they are selling these monitors for
    725 on the Mazda Forum. Right now they are selling them on ebay for 680 under seller
    dboluarte. Here is the info from Samuel at Mazda Forum:

    thanks for the kind feedback guys. all the credit should actually be given
    to PORT20 on this one as his write up gave me hope that this was even possible.
    all the information i needed to do this project was taken from here
    http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/lcd-...en-output.html.
    I just took all the information i learned from that post and implemented it with this screen.
    There are honestly only two components you need to make the VGA connection compatible with
    this screen. The 13 pin DIN connector that I got from Ebay and the scan converter which i
    got from http://www.converters.tv/. Everthing else is just wiring and connecting things
    together. Ofcourse if you have any questions id be glad to answer them. As i stated
    earlier though the colours seem to be more vibrant and the smaller text is alot more
    readible then when i had it hooked up via the RCA cables. I am very happy with the way
    it turned out. I just can't wait to hook everthing up so I can finally enjoy the screen
    for what i wanted it for. I guess i'll just go the safe route and put the carputer in my
    trunk. thanks for your input and advice on this one blade.

    Hey Splash,

    I'm following your steps to add a car-pc in my mazda 3 GT 2008. I have a doutb and some addtional questions:

    1) The DV-M3 kit come with the LCD or not? In your first post you did mention buying the kit + the LCD screen + the touchscreen kit; but looks like Tony is selling everything now.

    2) Are you able to control the car pc using the stereo buttons?

    3) Are you using manufacture's navigation buttons (those 3 buttons in the side of the park brake handle)?

    4) What Mic are you using for bluetooth?

    Hey Tony,

    Do you still have the Mazda kit? I'm interested in adding to my Mazda 3 2008.

    Thanks, I just got my mazda yesterday from the dealer. There is no clear area over the air system to attach the LCD, now in the 2008 refresh is a single plastic/leather covered piece.

    The Screen is very Clear!

    The screen is very clear in the sunlight. I have used Lilliput monitors in the past and non of them were good in the sunlight. I happen to live in Florida were it is usually sunny and my monitor works great.

    Flip Up Monitor Video

    I finally finished the video on the flip up monitor for Mazda 3. After trying a carputer I finally decided to do away with it and use the Garmin GVN and DVD Player. I can now watch movies, listen to MP3's, Navigate, XM Radio, Ipod connection, watch pics with either a USB or SD card. Here is my video on the Flip Up Monitor for Mazda 3.
