Could people please tell me about Touch Screens please? I fancy trying one with my Laptop to see if I get on with it, I don't want to spend a lot of money though unless I have too :mrgreen: ATM I'm just using the Laptop which has a 12" screen, but it does dominate the passenger area somewhat.

I think I would use my "Ram" Ball and extension (that I already have) and then buy a Ram VESA Mount so I can mount it on there, it would be out of the way but I could still see the screen OK.

This is the one I got for Lil'Blue, and although it's not top of the range it suits my needs and use profile:

Have a look on the above site as they do have better (and more expensive) screens, but in the end I decided for the amount I use Lil 'Blue for I could not justify the better units.

Things to think about is where you will be placing the screen and how much direct sunlight you will be getting on it. As Crispin said to me, if the sun shines on it, well then drive on a few yards and problem sorted :lol:

Gary I've been using this Lilliput screen now for more than 2 years, http://www.lilliput.cn/809GL-80NP.html and I'm very happy with it. I use mine only as a GPS and I prefer the 4:3 screen for a GPS, for the simple reason on a GPS I want to see more in front of me not to the sides. On a 16:9 you see more to the side than the front. I use mine in very dusty areas and bad corrugations and it is still perfect. I use a RAM camera suction mount to attach it to the windscreen.

has anyone made a support arm to store a screen in the glovebox, and then extend it out for when you're driving?

some obscure linkage arm could work... :think:
