Re: In-car DVD

i think its more of a novelty... to incease awe factor. but still cool

when theyre installed professionally, ive heard its connected to the handbrake so that the screen only comes on when its up.
(Safety issue i'd say)

Re: In-car DVD

In car DVD if you have kids is a necessity. Took it from Canberra to Brisbane and back. Awesome.

On the positive side, while not travelling, it doubles up as a MP3 player.

Re: In-car DVD

just put a computer in the car to go with the screen, i did and it works a treat.....

Music on tap, dvd drive to play dvd, can surf the net if you're real keen.....

And it's got wank factor.....

I used an E-vectra computer i bought off ebay for $120, and then upped the spec of it.... pIII 800, 256mb ram, 60gb hdd, and dvd..... owes me about $400 with a power supply.....

PM if you wanna know any more details.... it's so easy to do.......
