The screen is not water proof. Any water or condensation will make it fail. You'll want to put it behind a window.

Confused as to why you need to hook up to 5V? The input power to the MPGuino should be 12V that is on all the time.

(Input power has a diode drop then a regulator so input voltage needs to be 8V or greater.)

Or are you looking to power something else that is +5V fed from my MPGuino board?

Thanks for making this available JellyBeanDriver. I may be getting a 93 Civic Si and this will be perfect. 200 km round trip commute with gas prices going up... Need to confirm it's going to happen first before I pick one up.
