    Well, the screen plate on that doesn't fit properly behind my dash, it would have left gaps on the top and bottom. Part of the reason I didn't end up using it. What I was planning on doing

    No soldering required to mount a screen in that bracket by the way. It's just a tear down and re-mount.

    According to these directions you need to desolder and resolder the IR..

    Different mount, but yes that does makes. Otherwise there's no accessible controls to adjust the monitor. Not that I have to do that very often.

    I am now using the bybyte kit on my dakota, they also sell the complete screen already assembled, because you do need to solider in a ribbon cable to extend the IR, and it's easy to FUBAR the screen if care is not taken. I put mine together to save money but I know it's not for everyone. Thx for the kind words about my installs

    Bybyte's plastic kit looks a lot sturdier than their original metal one. I had the metal one for a brief period. I accidentally bent the front face slightly during install and it was never the same again.

    So down the road I'm going to either add a drop down LCD or headrest monitors.. How do you go about getting video to these (say headrest monitors)..

    I want to be able to output video to the headrest monitors while having something different on the main screen (GPS).. Do I use a dual video card? What if I want to output via RCA (because the VGA monitors are A LOT more $$)..

    Thanks!

    Took some pics of behind my head unit.. Doesn't look like I'd have room for a motherboard.. Not sure sure if I'd be able to so shave some of that plastic out in the back to give me more room or not..

    The largest component is by far the motherboard. A standard ATX board is definitely too large for that space. A mini-itx board is 6.7"x6.7", which would fit. You could also do a pico-itx or a nano-itx but your options are very limited and obviously they cost more.

    There's also the Commell line of motherboards, although they are ridiculously expensive.

    Wonder if I could get this case to fit.. It's 8.7" x 5.1" x 11.8".. If I can get the 11.8" to go left to right...
