I am looking to buy one of these http://cgi.ebay.de/USB-LCD-Farb-Col...cmdZViewItemQQptZBauteile?hash=item4ceb1b9149

To plug into my car pc and show information like / tyre pressures - temps/ outside temp/ inside temp/ track information etc etc that I already get on my main screen.

I want to have this at a glanceable level ie near the speedometer area.

Any ideas on where I can squeeze this screen?

Thanks all!

I was not asking whether to get it or not. I was asking where to put it.
And I suggested 'In the bin' did I not?

I havent got a telemetry system.

Just a car pc with temp sensors and tyre pressure monitors.

its a telemetry stsem of sort. Why? why would you ever need to know active tyre pressure or temperature on a small, low powered road car?

Its a direct TPMS. Lots of cars have them nowadays. Allows me to not have to constantly go out and manually check the tires.

....plus im a numbers/info whore :D

Most probably for show, as opposed to a real use of it. Slightly weird and a waste of money IMO...

It's too small for the centre console IMO. Better off getting a 6.5" monitor or something and making a proper job out of it. It'll look out of place I think.

tbh mate i would suggest getting one with a touch interface and then modding a nice little program for the pc, that would allow you not only to look at tyre pressure and stuff, but also to have controls over other things, and then mod it into a truely awesome mechanism for opening.
