2.2 inch display interface
Question asked by John - November 1, 2015 at 5:29 AM
hi guys, I'm planning my incar pc. i have everything i need to install it. but there are a few things i would to to do with it. i have a bluetooth handsfree kit installed in my car right now and it has a 2.2 inch display. i would like to be able to use it to display things like GPS direction signs i.e. right turn, left turn and things like what exit to take at the round about. i know things like this would be displayed on the main user screen as well. i would also like to be able to show what contact is calling me on the little screen too.
if its not possible, thanks anyway. but if it is what plugins or hardware would i need. i know i would need some sort of usb to parallel interface but that all i know.
thanks John McL

You would need to run Centafuse in Dual screen mode and then run a custom plugin on the second screen to pull the data you want.
Not all the data you want may not be available to plugins though.
I don't think there is a plugin about at the moment that would do what you want so you would need to either write it yourself or find someone that is willing to do it for you.

In addition to what Enforcer answered, I wonder how you would address this display. It is probably part of a device, like a Parrot. Does it have a Video input (e.g. to connect a rear view camera), or some kind of interface over WIFI or Bluetooth? In the last case I could think of a CF Plugin that would connect to the device and simulates an incoming call with an image of the caller or uses the push object protocol. But is this device capable of handling this and can it handle more then 1 connection; it is already connected to your phone, I assume.
Have fun,

its a nokia ck-15w handfree car kit, similar to the parrot systems yes. i know it uses a parallel interface(same as what the arduino uses for 20*2 lcds) i was hoping to integrate this display into centrifuges to display turns using gps and display incoming caller id if that makes sense.
it only does handsfree, no aux or video in
