7 inch T-View vga lcd in 1999 Acura RL + gps navigation
here is what i've done. level 1
7 inch lcd vga mounted in the ashtray area.
delorme usb gps receiver in the roof line by the passenger side.
regulated 12vdc for laptop and lcd display.
a slime 750mhz p3 laptop under the glove box.
so what i have now is gps navigation, videos and mp3 (sound output not yet connected to main system)
in a few months (hints level 2):
multi channels usb external sound card. stock pre-amp input to sound card. this will give me complete control over sound in the car on my lcd screen.
edit 1/10/04: originally i thought that the vga was dimmed and not up to the manufacture rated of 260nits because its dimmer than my laptop and datalux both rated at around 200 nits. i would give this vga lcd a 170-180nit rating, however, the screen was design for out door compatible(transflective?) so it work pretty well outside and in direct sun light. you can see a picture of the screen in direct sunlight action here
you can see most of everything that i did here: LCD in RL
