Yes very possible!You may have to plug the screen only after FS has booted. Anyway it's less clumsy than the VR-insight which need a video port.I'm currently using an iPad with airdisplay, PMDG's and CaptainSim's FMC goes in the touch screenRV

I mean the USB touch screens are now usually driven with an USB virtual graphic card driver.The iPad I use make the video communication with WIFI, alas I didnt yet seen any equivalent app for android, the android does not act as a monitor in this case unless someone figure an app to do so.I wrote sometimes ago this http://eric.artmuz.org/wp/?p=930RV
