GTA02 broken screen / What Nice Projekts to Do Without a Screen or Would Other Screens Work

unfortunately I the screen of my old GTA02 has stopped working (all white
 apart from a bit of pixel garbish at the bottom, also directly after 
booting). Now I know that you can get a replacement for about 80EUR. Even
though this is still an option it is a bit expensive regarding the fact that
the phone is now 6years old. The phone itself still works as I can ssh into
QtMoko. So I have two questions

a) did anyone ever manage to connect the phone to some other type of newer
screen (eg to build an incar navigation system?) 

b) if I ever wanted install something new, how would I proceed only with
ssh as a visual feedback (if at all): Qtmoko and SHR need the user to 
calibrate the screen inbetween, so I don't know where they will get stuck
during installation.

Maybe you can share your ideas on what to do with such a device.

Many thanks and happy easter
