  • 98 Jeep Grand Cherokee - 1.5DIN LCD touch screen?

    Hello All,

    I have a 98 Jeep Grand Cherokee with a dreaded 1.5 DIN opening. (pic attached) I am looking for a decent LCD touch screen to fill this space. I have seen another Jeep ZJ that put a 7" by loosing the vents. I don't want to do that. I use them for heat, its gets cold in New England!

    While not the same, I have seen these units that are 1 DIN in size but the screen is 1.5 DIN:

    They do everything I want, touch, ipod, GPS, AM/FM, bluetooth, don't care about DVD, but it has it.

    While I did not want to spend $350 (I have tons of PC stuff, I fix them) I was looking for just the screen. However, to build, find a place to put the carputer, run wires, etc.. this just might fill the bill.

    Thoughts on this unit? anyone ever try one in a 1.5 DIN? there are a few of these items on ebay all about $325-350

    so buy this gizmo and be done? or a good 1.5 DIN touch screen? I want to avoid the pull out kind, plus, I think it would hit the dash overhang.

    Thanks in Advance!

    1.5 din is litterally between a rock and a hard place...

    The unit that you linked to doesn't have a VGA input, so the video from a computer might not be very clear, and there is no way to use the touch screen on the unit either. It can be made to work but would not be as clear as a standard VGA screen...
