Default LCD ideas?

I found a real cheap ($50) lcd at tiger direct. 5'", I was wondering what I could do with it. For fifty bucks I'd be willing to experiment. I like the idea of having an LCD in my car, but want something cool with it. Not just for PS2 and the like. I like the interactive TOUCHdash, but I'm lacking the touch part. Any way I could control mp3s on it? Any other cool ideas?

Here'* the link: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...CCODE=WEM910IP
I'm willing to mod it plenty, maybe to flip down from the roof or put it between the radio and the shifter. Maybe some GPS? If all else fails, I'll hook up my SNES and let my friends play it as we drive around.

i did something similar, i actually got some of the crappy walmart screens used for a good price, and took them out of the plastic casing and put them in my sunvisors and reupholstered them. The visors are kind thick but if you take out the first smaller visor, then you cant tell the difference. I just need to make a trim ring for around the screen and throw them in.
