    Buttonless Lilliputs

    I want to install my lilliput without any buttons. Beyond doing the auto-on mod, what else would I want to do to the screen to make it so I don't need to push any buttons on it?

    if going buttonless make sure the infra red eye is still usable, there are times when you need to "set some screen parameters"

    the infra red eye is pretty easy to desolder from the buttons pcb, which must still be connected to the screen but can be left dangling inside the housing, I used an audio cable from a cd rom to extend the infra red eye on my buttonless setup

    good luck

    If you do the auto-power on mod, this would work great - no need for any buttons, though making a window for the IR sensor is a good idea. I used part of an RJ45 jack to make a window in the bezel I made for the Lilly - works great and looks pretty good

    I made an extension for the power button so I can turn off the lilli a few blocks before I park (also with the coyote mod). I used a tiny bush button from Radioshack that just happened to match my dash perfectly, rendering the button completely invisible. This, I think, is just as important as concealing your screen.

    Also, I don't even have the IR sensor visible. I was planning on drilling a small hole for it or something, but it turns out that I never use the remote anyway.

    Any idea on how to make a sliding door or some other device to be able to conceal the screen?

    Most of the good actuator I have seen are expensive. I'm tring to figure out how to do the samething. I'll let you guys know how I implemented when I get done with the cover/door.

    i think an electric motor would work better for something like that... actuators are good for moving heavy stuff, an electric motor is fairly cheap, and would give that slow fluid movement that would look pimp.
