Carputer LCD Screen


By Wan Chi Lau

When we got the LCD screen for the Boxster project, we needed to test it with a variety of input signals. We thought it would be useful to document the process and share it with our RainyDayGarage readers!

You are welcome to follow along on this project as we go from Design to Installation.

The Touchscreen portion of this Carputer project is divided into:

- Requirements
