    uhhhh, heat it up, it will soften & come off almost as easily as it went on, use a heat gun or hair dryer & DON"T heat it to liquid state, just soften & peel.....................Hey frodo, how about a seperate forum on hotglue & the use & misuse of it

    Yeah, i can elaborate on how the screens all work:

    The lower front kenwood touchscreen is connected to a seperate kenwood GPS module brain. The lower screen can work indipendant of the others with the GPS or it has two video inputs so it can recieve other video sources(its also connected to the carputer and the xbox)

    The front top xenarc touchscreen is connected to the carputer and also has two video inputs(one is the backup camera and the other is also the xbox)

    The two rear screens are connected to both the xbox and the carputer through the their own little brain boxes(they both have two video, and stereo inputs on them)

    From the front xenarc i can play/send video on the rear screens and lower kenwood screen and still use my radio or whatever i want(the rear screens have headphone jacks from a pioneer audio/video splitter(the splitter can switch from three sources with indipendant volume and video/audio feed for each headset) if you want to use them, otherwise they would go through the trucks stereo system)

    Each screen also has the option of manualy switching from one source to the other depending on what is running(for example: if there are two people in the back seat, one can play xbox and the other can watch a movie with seperate audio sources from the headphones) I can have the GPS running on the lower screen and the audio player running on the top with no problem.

    I hope that all makes sense,, let me know if i can elaborate any more
