    The display itself only needs the USB, so no external power needed.
    But if you want to use the General Purpose Outputs - which can be used to control fans, leds and other devices - in most cases you will need an external power source. USB can only handle about 500mA.
    Why is it drug addicts and computer afficionados are both called users?

    I know somewhere on mp3car there is someone who took an ordinary notepad, the old kind that you use a pen on, and put some hooks on the back. Then when they left the car, they just hooked it over the screen and it looks like there is just the notepad rather than a nice lcd screen. I tried to find the thread with no avail.

    I know which one you mean. I have seen it as well.
    But this setup has been "demolished" and rebuilt in my VW Passat.

    I am thinking of molding my screen in my dash with my new install.
    Because it looks cleaner and if done properly, it doesn't draw any attention.
    At the moment I am still looking at what is the best way to do this.
