  1. Hi guys, just thought I'd drop in and let you know about a website I found. For ages I've been searching for a small touchscreen to use as part of a home brew car PC build utilising the Raspberry Pi. The only problem was finding one with a natively supported driver set. I found a website called www.carcomputer.co.uk that provide customizable bundles which include a touchscreen HDMI monitor and an SD card with the driver set already compiled into the OS and calibrated. The only limitation is as yet they only offer Debian Wheezy as an OS but this suited me fine. They have a whole array of products here: http://www.carcomputer.co.uk/index.php?/raspberry-pi/view-all-products The bundle I bought was the £199.00 one, so far so good. Everthing turned up the very next day and was simply plug and play. I know its cheating as the Pi is supposed to be a devlopers tool, but its taken so much work out of the build and made my life a lot easier. I can't reccomend these guys enough
  2. Hi, I've been looking into a similar thing to this myself. Been having some success with the 10" bundle from Carcomputer below:- http://www.carcomputer.co.uk/index.php?/monitors/hdmi-monitors/raspberry-pi-compatible-10.1-hdmi-touch-screen-monitor ...that has a Lilliput monitor and a precompiled wheezy with the touchscreen drivers. I'll have a look at the below and see if it helps:- http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=41&t=57978 ------------------------ Corwin
  3. Hi, Nope - not had any luck myself with this. Been using a bundle available from carcomputer.co.uk at the below link, in a setup that will eventually go into my car (before Christmas, hopefully). http://www.carcomputer.co.uk/index.php?/monitors/hdmi-monitors/raspberry-pi-compatible-10.1-hdmi-touch-screen-monitor ------------- Corwin
