Does anyone out there know how to invert the image on the screen of a computer. I can't find a place to mount the laptop apart from the dash which may spoil the handbrake's looks if we're ever in an accident. Thought perhaps I could mount it to the overhead console and have the screen open down but the problem is the image is upside down. The screen doesn't want to detach. Its a little disconcerting looking at a moving map that's upside down.

I fitted to upright brackets to the side of my consol , with a draw slide either side . the kids can pull it towards them in the rear to watch movies (&operate the handbrake) and I slide it back and swivet it my way to use the navigator .

Sorry don't take kids and only have a Nissan Patrol cab/chassis anyway so am limited on space. The handbrake doesn't like it on her knees and it may be dangerous to mount it on the dash.

Peck ,Have you seen the Dvd monitors that fit into your dash like a Cd player & only come out when there on ? This may suit you in your case .The only thing you need is to have DVD out on yout Lap top

hi there,

I just downloaded the latest security updates etc for my computer and one of them was something for NVIDEA Media centre. I didnt really take much notice of what was in the updates as there was so many. I just downloaded them all! Anyway, after i installed and restarted my computer i noticed a new icon in the bottom right - NVIDEA Media Centre. One of the options on this is to rotate the screen 90 to 270 degrees.
Hope this helps.
Cheers
Michael
