    I'm using the onboard VGA which is CLE266 or something like that. Haven't tried any major animations or movies just yet, but so far I think the biggest limitation is the response time of the lcd. The graphics seem ok. But it doesn't support DirectX 8 or 9 100%.

    It is illegal in every state to have video playing in view of the driver. We are liable because we make StreetDeck and it has to comply with the law whenever applicable. Some of the other safety features may be laxed in future versions based on testing, but we will never make it easy for the driver to view video while driving.

    What if I have only one monitor that's in the back of the car? What should I do?

    As far as I can tell, making this an simple option in the config would do the trick. Not only would you follow the law, you would actually figure out that the US isn't the only country in the world and thereby also understand that you can't follow all the rules.

    Or will there be a version for each country?

    Well, the bad news is, facilitating someone else to break the law, is in fact a crime in itself.

    The good news is you don't have to worry about any of the features being locked out outside of North America since we don't yet support navigation in those regions so you don't need to hook up a GPS.

    How would I go about facilitating a multiple monitor hookup?
    I want to do a touchscreen in the dash and multiple RCA connected LCD monitors in the headrests, visors, rear tailgate area, etc

    Im using a laptop temporarily just to get my install in-- Ill upgrade to a mini ITX sometime in the next 4 months after I get the whole car working (its a show/go car so I have engine work that happens at the same time)
