Why do I doubt that? How could you for a second think it is possible to control a PC over USB or even serial by tapping into some wires? Do you have the slightest idea how a monitor setup for a carputer communicates to the PC? You can't be older than 21

If you knew so much, you would know you would have to build and program your own interface. You would have to REVERSE ENGINEER the navi unit, figure out the protocol it uses for the touchscreen, then build and program your own interface to interlace between the navi and the PC. Without that there is no way for the PC to understand the navi unit. And I just made it sound easy..... Look dude, search for a user named jhowkins an you will see that he has spent years reverse engineering the navi unit to do do something similar to this, and guess what he actually knows what he is doing. He didn't have to come on here and ask a retarded question, and he has been working on that for a couple years now. For all I know he may have even gave up as he hasn't been here a long time. I'm only giving you a hard time because this is so ridiculous and your just completely disregarding what I'm saying, and that's a bit frustrating when I'm trying to baby feed you an answer and you won't take it. That's a bit ignorant isn't it? Don't worry your not the first, nor the last....
