Hi I intend to use my Laptop (New ACER Travelmate2201) via GPS Mouse and Lilliput Monitor to install Travelroute Co Pilot7 Livestreet mapping. im confused as to what rype of lilliput screen i should buy,(with or without touchscreen preferably 8", i have an optical mouse which i think would be preferable and easier to use than the touchscreen option ,do i need USB or VGA screen option ) any advise would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Maurice,

Take a look a this site for some good ideas:

or Lilliput screen installation

Just one thing to note is that Digital World Wide sell the completed in dash housing with lilliput screen mounting for US$400 now. Its the same price as buying the screen (off ebay) and buying the housing separate (from Digital World Wide) but without the hassle of self assembly.

Digital World Wide

The tech support people are great the DWW.

If you have any more questions member mesage me as I am just about to head off down the same track.

I guessit all depends if you have a spare DIN in your dash or not.

Hi Maurice,
I have the 7" Lilliput screen (as per the link). It's accepts vga so you plug it straight into the monitor socket of your laptop (I have a Travelmate 520). Don't know much about the touchscreen version. I just use a mouse to do what I need so the laptop is tucked away under a seat. Haven't done the in-dash thing (although it looks very nice, to much $$ for me!). I love the screen, have it placed in the Prado behind the gear shift under the ashtray. They take multiple inputs so i was thinking of plugging in a camera out the rear.

regards
Garth
