There are several problems when installing these types of monitors. For starters is the VGA to video conversion. With a standard screen you can run one cable that's either svideo or rca + power. With a vga monitor you have to run a vga video cable (which is pretty large) plus power that's converted over from your 12-volt automotive power source. The converter also takes power so that's another cable to run. Then the monitors are pretty hefty. That means no ceiling mounts. Back of the seat or mounted to the headrests are you best option with monitors of this size. That puts them in plain sight and because of the cables and wires they aren't easy removed and stored. I don't like that much visibility because I travel a lot and cars with noticeable equipment get broken into more often. I've done a few video system installs and a few in car pc installs. For what I plan on using mine for the in car video install would work the best. I'll have to 8" flip down screens in the back. I can run the wires up the pillars and on top of the headliner. With the screens closed they aren't very visible from the outside. Then for the front I'll run to smaller screens, probably 5", in the sun visors. That way I can once again run the wire on top of the headliner out of sight. I'm going to put a stand-alone DVD player under the passenger seat with an fm modulator so that I can play the movie's sound over the factory speaker system. I've done this type of install before and it's pretty clean, no wires hanging, and everything still looks pretty stock.
As far as my email being in the message. I don't have a problem with span. That's an old hotmail address and this is the only think I use it for. It was fine to leave it in.
