I've been looking for small VGA LCD Monitors ( 5" to 7" ) for use with Propellers but nobody seems to be selling them?
Any ideas?

This is a German link, probably of no use for you:

Some of those even have touchscreens, but I'm not sure if the prop can access that data as you need special drivers.

You should look for car entertainment systems.

Hi William,

The size is 7''. Contras very good. I think it's a good deal.

How about the prop board? Any news?

This may be the right monitor. But will be sold a bit more expensive http://forums.parallax.com/images/smilies/cool.gif

Hi all!

Just joined the group...ordered my PropUsb...waiting for the fun to start!

I just saw at Costco a car backup video kit (comes with Camera, display, cables etc) for approx USD$60! You can dump the camera and just use the monitor!
It has RCA inputs etc. I'm not sure if it has sound...Color to boot!
