  • Touch-Screen Overlay

    Hi everyone,

    Long time reader/first time poster and i'm hoping some of you can point me in the right direction. I've been searching the forums but haven't yet found what i'm looking for.

    I Have 5 1/2" by 3" screen ( 6 1/2" diag) in my stock radio that i'd like to put a touchscreen overlay on top of. Would a standard 7" overlay fit? or are there any places that sell them in this odd size?

    Thanks!

    Steve

    Hi Steve

    I fitted a 7" to my factory screen, cant rember the size but was smaller than the overlay, used double sided tape and sandwiched it between the exsiting screen and frame. You would know it was there and works fine once screen size it set in the program.

    Regards

      Thanks - any place you suggest buying from? I could try the 7" I 'think' if I knew the width & height of it.

        Mark,

        Any photos/instructions/tips from your project? Especially, system that you modded. I'm sure that would be useful to Steve and others of us that are looking into this type of project.

        Thanks,

        Chip

          Sorry didnt think to take pictures as I went along, the system I modded was an Australian Ford Territory, just removed the front ICC screen and fitted the touch panel inbetween the screen and the facia with double sided tape and reassembled the whole thing as a sandwich.
