ICC Colour Screen = VGA = PC

I thought even though this is for the Interior Tech section, most people with GT(-p)'s have the colour ICC. Check out what I have been able to do with some cables, a bread board, some Resistors and an XOR IC

It is actually an MSI Mega PC with a 12V Power Supply, all mounted in the boot. I am still working on it but it will also run from the IR port which is on top of the TFT, I just need to do some more testing.

When I have it all finalised I will post detailed infromation about how it is done

Re: ICC Colour Screen = VGA = PC

Very nice! It really is astonishing that Ford didn't capitalize on the full usefulness of this colour screen - it really does go to waste simply for radio tuning and a/c control!

I'd like to see your "custom breadboard" setup - wouldn't happen to have a roof mounted CRO in there somewhere??
