    Alpine screen interface

    We are almost done with complete intergration with a alpine 740bt monitor. I have CF running at 800x480 and it looks very good. We are almost done with our touchscreen interface. When we are done we should be able to get Car PCs on these alpines with full touchscreen control without having to hack the screen. Will post some pics ASAP. BTW she is also running xp embedded with no troubles. This has been a long time in the making. What do you guys think?

    well I guess this gets the point accross. I don't have access to a decent camera right now. So I had to use my super high quality camera phone lol. I will get some better ones up soon.

    woh, that's cool. alpines screens are quality & make stuff like lilli's & xenarcs look cheap in comparison. alpine builds really nice screens in general, don't know anything about this one but off to google I go....

    800X480 with rgb, what did you use for the conversion? does it sync 100%?

    The screen is very readable in sunlight more than my lilli, but I don't think it qualifies as full sunlight readable. In the picture I still have the plastic cover on the screen thats why there is glare and also the type of camera used. We have a full screen we have a small line that rolls on the screen, it is not very noticable but I want it to be perfect. We had to build all of our own sync circuits but I think we got it dialed in perfectly.

    Humm, frankly, hard to say it looks good. Try to upload a better picture then, w/o any cover, or maybe the windows desktop or maybe a nav. map. These last are the real test for any conversion, because of the small fonts involved.

    Yeah I plan on uploading more, better pics as soon as I get it put back together. Had to rip it a part to get to the touchscreen interface. I personally think it looked very good in windows. I was surfing around on it and I could read everything. Though still wasnt as clear as I would like it. That was running 1024x768. I can only run 800x480 when running CF as shell.

    Wow...looks promising. So you build yourself a VGA to RGBs converter? I try to buy one, from Converterstv, for my stock nav screen, so far, no success, in this thread.

    How is the scan rate for the Alpine unit? Does it accept 60Hz horiz. refresh rate (as most computer monitors)? Most stock LCDs accept exactly 15.750 Hz and that is a big problem.
