    update, ive done more than the pics show, but i forgot to take pics. will take more tomorrow morning.

    anyways, ive changed batteries, put one in the boot, and put the pc under the passenger seat (very tight squeeze).

    most importantly, the screen went in the dash - only pics i have right now are when it was held in by 3 screws, but it has been secured now - just no pics.

    pics? ok

    well, ****. i fking hate this **** now. got to the final bit to test the lilliput in the car, and...... WHITE SCREEN OF DEATH. great, research shows dodgy ribbon cable, wiggling around of cable proves it. then, all of a sudden... bzzzzzt! we see sparks from a dodgy part on the lcd motherboard. ffs, can nothing go right?!?!?! so at this point, after 5 hours of ******* about with the lilli we give up, dejected and ****ed RIGHT off. I want to cry right now. 2 weeks of hard graft and its down the pan.

    rj has taken his car home now after a very long wait whilst we BOTH tried to fix it. its over, hopefully rj will finish up whats been started.

    Yeah ive got it in the car now the screen quality looks ok but the brightness is REALLY **** compared to the other in car units ive had any way.

    Its sort of yellowie, i cant get a nice bright colour looks like the screen was made in the 80's. ive played with the RGB but still looks ****

    GPS is fine (managed to get uk maps)

    erm... the sound is giving me problems as it makes a big buzzing sound on startup but when in windows it is ok, think im gonna use my pioneer DSP that might help.

    Applications work fine

    Everything is ok appart from the screen i was very disappointed, isnt there any BRIGHT BRIGHT 8" screens out there that would suitable for in car media?
