I like the monitor. Could you show a pic of the viewer side. Do you just take the monitor out of the housing and install it in the new aluminum housing using longer connecting cables?
There is a reason why I did not take pics of the viewing side. The monitor wasn't installed. [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif[/img] Customer came from work and forgot to bring the monitor, but will get some pics later.
The LCD was purchased as a component only. It had no case of it's own. I have no idea what it was originally built for. It measures about 4.5"x6" and is about 3/4" thick. I think it is made by Sharp, and I think the cost may have been in the $400/$500 range, but have no PERSONAL knowledge of that.
It will remain in the case I built. Wiring from inside the CBrack, power and computer connection, will come through the mounting bolt that attaches the bracket portion of the unit to the CBrack. If you look closely at the photos, you can see the hole in the bolt. The connectors in the LCD housing are not installed in the pic either. You can see those holes too, if you look closely.
The computer that was formerly mounted on the CBrack will continue to perform its function. It will be "stashed" in a more convenient location. Probably the supply line from the computer to the monitor will remain in place so that the computer can be plugged in more easily.
The resolution on the LCD is not up to portable computer specs. I think it may normally be associated with small screen TV as opposed to computers. Just a guess, but it works well enough to use with the GPS mapping program, and certainly produces fine TV type motion video.
