Yes, the 4-pin plug is going to be a challenge to find (where's that 
bucket of hens' teeth, when you need it?), but adding an HDMI display is 
not really an option.  No space.  The car is one where you don't get 
into it, you put it on...

If adding a 7" display were an option, the Pi 's native one looks very 
nice.  Touch input, even.  Alas.
