    Please let me know any experiences with any of these. It is my first try at this and i want to make sure im making the right choices. I will be moving this unit when i purcase another car in a couple of years.

    Since the only requirement that you gave was that you wanted it "in dash touch screen" and with VGA, of the 3 choices, my answer is: yes.

    (they're all good. generally quality follows price, so you get what you paid for. you don't give enough details of how you'll use it to really give any answer relevant for you)

      Sorry,

      I plan to use it to connect a computer that i will place in the trunk. That is basically it. On the computer will be....

      GPS
      Satelite Radio
      Basic Word and such as i might use computer to type or do other things when away from home
      Regular radio
      DVD <- not much but a little
      CD and just music from HD
      Possibly going to place a rear camera but not neccessary. anyone find they use it when backing up? That is optional. Price is a factor.
      Your reccomendation?

        You probably won't notice any difference between them, then. That Autonode one has a weird res (16:10, 854x480), but the 300:1 contrast ratio looks nice. I can't speak for the Autonode (never used it), but both lilliput and xenarc have good products. Since price is a factor, that's probably what will ultimately decide it for you (new or used lilliput vs used/cheap xenarc).

          So in your opinon is the extra 100 worth it to go from the Autonode to the Xenarc? the Lilliput looks kind of cheap button style know what i mean? I do like the feature in the Autonode that when you put it in reverse it automatically puts on the reverse cam. That is a nice feature. Odds are im goin with the Autonode. Let me know if you think otherwise.

            I bought mine from Autonode and it has the same resolution (800x480) as the Xenarc or Lilliput. This thread might be helpful:
