Cool idea - iDrive and CarPC on the same screen

Hi,

I was thinking if its possible to do the following: replace the iDrive screen with a touch screen of identical size, and then use a switch (KVM?) to change between displaying the iDrive signal and displaying the CarPC video signal...wouldn't this be cool ?

The problem is, is the iDrive screen easily reachable with the hand in order to provide the touch-screen functionality ?

yeah the position of the screen is pretty far away. I am certain you can do what you just suggested, you can even find a way to control the pc using the idrive knob. it sounds pretty pricey.
