'92 S-10 EV


« on: May 16, 2009, 08:51:32 PM »

Here's a big THANK YOU to Rich Carroll for his presentation on the Blue Window EV Dashboard product at last night's meeting!

Rich: you mentioned reasonably priced LCD display on Ebay.  Could you post a pointer to units like the one you had last night ?  i tried various searches but the came up with a mind-boggling amount of them.

i have a propeller demo board ($80 from Digi-Key) and am itching to try some SPIN programming.  i've hooked it up to my VGA monitor and TV at home, but there is no room for a 31" monitor in my EV :-)

Thanks!

Try
http://desc.shop.ebay.com/items/?_nkw=tft+monitor+-(7%22%2C+7in)&_in_kw=1&_ex_kw=&_sacat=3270&_okw=tft+monitor+-(7%22%2C+7in)&_oexkw=&saveon=2&LH_TitleDesc=1&_mPrRngCbx=1&_udlo=&_udhi=50&_ftrt=901&_ftrv=1&_sabdlo=&_sabdhi=&_samilow=&_samihi=&_sadis=200&_fpos=Zip+code&_fsct=&LH_SALE_CURRENCY=0&_sop=12&_dmd=1&_ipg=50&_rdc=1

That search got me about 100 smaller (not 7 inch) monitors, which cost less than $50

Or, you can do your own ebay search, but not in the auto section, search in the regular ebay for: 

                                                  tft monitor -(7", 7in)                                       

and limit your field to the price range you want.  Obviously you can change the search specs to whatever you want, but there are so
many seven inch, and I did NOT want one that big, so I just excluded all those from the search.

Avoid buying one that deals with rear view backup cameras, some have all their images reversed, which makes the text virtually unreadable.
