    Nice work.
    A word of caution, some cities/states have laws about video that is viewable by the driver.
    Maybe a good idea to find out what if any apply in your area.

    Thanks for the pics

    TruckinMP3,

    Does that apply to just watching movies? I wondered if they enforced other things like games.

    hijinks21,

    I didnt end up having to use powerstrip. When I went into display setting(in control panel) and chose TV out for the display the next time it rebooted it filled the screen entirely.

    Depends on how the law is written: some indicate a screen is OK for navigation use but not for video in motion (movies/games)

    Also an enforcement choice for officers. Check so you know.

    I know for Va if it's for Nav or radio functions it's fine...just don't let them catch you watching a movie or playing a game something like a $500 fine.
    Such is life....

    I have to say, that is one of the best I've ever seen NTSC display text - especially on such a small screen! Good Job.

    Did you have to use a custom resolution? I bought a 7" widescreen too.

    Nice install!

    I've got an Xterra also and have been wondering about the best place to mount a computer.

    How did you fit the mini-book PC under the seat?
