  • Advice on how/where to put touchscreen

    OK. I am finally going to bite the bullet and get a car pc, I am not sure on whether to go for a 7, 8 or 10" screen though. Looking at the pic below What do you gurus recommend?

    Its going in a 80 Series Landcruiser as pictured below. Do you guys have the screens mounted flat or are they tilted slightly towards the driver enabling a better viewing angle?


    I was going to mount it similar to this pic below so I can swivel towards me or the mrs depending on what its doing UNTIL I stumbled across some pics of the installs you guys are managing to do. !!


    I am looking at the cheap ebay 8 or 10" LCD's at the moment but am open to suggestions.

    You could easily fit a 7'' in your dash and relocate your aftermarket JVC. Looks like it'll be hard to reach so you better plan and check everything before going for it....

    Good luck!!

      Yeah I wanted to go bigger than a 7" and as for the JVC deck that will be removed as long as I can get radio to work through the car pc.

        You could go for a 8'' or 10'' but that means more $$$ and more fabrication with epoxy or what ever product your intend to use. It seems like a nice project....don't to plan everything before, it will give a bigger picture of my work needs to be done.

        IMO, you could relocate the JVC and get the audio from there (AUXILIARY).

        GOod luck with ur setup man.

          Wow that's a whole lot of devices!
          I would move the JVC as some suggested. A double din is a perfect place for a monitor.

            Where did you get the monitor mount? I have been searching the forums for that type of mount for my 7" archos... touch screen, trying to figure a way to mount it in my BMW style dash.
