    Double din vs 1.5 din in a 98 GMC Savana.

    I have a 1998 GMC Savana conversion van I was hoping to put an in dash carputer in. I have the Lilliput 7" touchscreen here.

    I was confused as to how exactly this monitor fits into a 1.5 din dash. I believe my dash is 1.5 din. I took some measurements and the dimensions closely match that of a 1.5 din slot, but they more closely match a double din slot.

    Do people generally take the casing off the LCD screen and just put that in the din casing, or do they put the entire monitor in there?

    That is not my van, but it looks almost exactly like it. Would I be able to just attatch the bare LCD to the din casing and slide it in like that, or do I need to do any modding (drilling, dremeling, cutting, etc)?
    Check out my GMC Savana worklog.

    Remaining tasks to facilitate vanputer installation codename "Enterprise":
    - Edit skin to liking.
    - Get compatible phone for mobilephone.net.
    - Facilitate HVAC control.

    it is a 1.5 din opening. you can really go either way with it-- either make the monitor fit in a 1 din(there is a thread about slot loading any screen), and use a aftermarket radio mounting kit, or you can fab something up to have the monitor sit in front of the old radio.

    but there are no simple solutions to getting a 7" non-motorized screen in a 1.5 din opening.
