  • Need a in dash Monitor to use with a Mac Mini

    Hey guys - how you doing ?

    I need a in dash monitor to use with a mac mini - what would you recommend ?

    I really liked Xenarc MDTX 7000 in dash but its too expansive IMO - around US$ 750,00

    What are other options I have ? Lilliput ? which model ?

    It does not have to be motorised or built in DVD -radio or speaker. It only has to be a touchscreen monitor compatible with Mac OSx and has to have at least one AV Output - one AV Input - 1 VGA Input

    Thanks for helping me

        Well I hope you have a good enough viewing angle. I own the 700tsv and i think its good, but not the best in bright conditions which is the case with every other in the 2-400.00 price range. If you want the best go with cartft.com 700sh (750.00) i have one on order.

        Send a pic of where you want to put it in your car.

          If you're stuck with single din you're options are severely limited. Xenarc and Liliput have models that are much cheaper than the Xenarc MDTX 7000. You're still looking at $400.

          The other option is to re-work part of your dash to fit a 7" monitor inside.

            i own the Xenarc 700idt model. i really like this one because it fits in a single DIN slot but it does not have the electric motors, instead it is all spring loaded. I like that better because it is one less thing to fix and in the event that you decide you want to mount the monitor flush (as i am doing right now) you can easily disassemble the monitor disconnecting it from the slide out mechanism essentially making it just like all other 7" monitors.
