Below I listed information about various devices that could give you more options for using CID as smart display.

1. Car GPS box - nice solution used as GPS and multimedia player with possibility for touch panel resistive 4 wire control. The touch panel may be connected directly to this box.



Have a look to this video with car GPS box, touch panel and video interface:


2. MirrorLink box - Duplicating the phone’s screen on the CID display, you may use your smartphone IOS/Android as an external device for Navigation, multimedia player, safety applications (iOnRoad), etc.



3. CarPC - flexible solution to build a complex infotainment system in your car. You may create the above solution and not only using PC software and peripherals.

Find a Mini ITX motherboard with TV-OUT support. I recommended the following Intel Atom based:

http://www.cartft.com/catalog/il/980 with M2ATX power supply


Here is a video with Intel D945GCLF2 CarPC and Centrafuse 4:

Other option for CarPC could be Raspberry

Raspberry PI:

4. Media Player - chipper solution for those that would like only to watch videos/clips on USB or SD card. You may install Android based Media Player that allows to play your media via with your mobile phone or Tablet and used your mobile phone to control this device.



5. Car DVB-T HD Mpeg4 - have the TV experience in your car. Watch free terrestrial digital TV channels on CID display. Try to find a device with 2 or 4 diversity antennas for better signal reception.
