    Very nice....the 7in touch screen you are using....does it just plug into the computer via USB? or do you have to hook it up to your video card?

    Yes to both. I use the second video output port, and a USB port. It also has a power adapter that plugs provides additional power for the display. The monitor was just $125 and an excellent value.

    Hey gwplotts...I got this response from the company:
    Yes, the VM70 and all of our touch screen monitors work through the USB port (for the touch screen). However, the video is through the VGA port

    So, am I right in saying that if I plug the unit into a USB port I won't see anything on-screen until I plug the unit into my vga port on my graphics card as well? Just want to make sure before I order it...only have 1 VGA port on my computer

    100% right. Like many external videos displays they require a vga input. There are some usb->vga adaptors that I've seen on amazon, but I'm not sure how they work or if they'd work in FS. BTW, I run full screen not windowed mode and have to click and drag the gps to my touchscreen display and resize it there. After that I don't touch mouse or keyboard until I exit fsx.
