    Dual-Din chassis with Display

    I see a lot of posts here with people modifying their dash bezel to accommodate a specific screen (usually a Lilli or Xenarc).

    My question is:

    Would the majority of you want a chassis with a built in display with an aftermarket look that you could just "plug and play".

    OR

    Would you want a chassis that allowed you to mount any screen to it (say from 6.5" to 10") and modify your dash around it to create a flush, OEM look.

    OR

    Both as an option.

    I ask because I know there a lot of people here that already have a display or want a display larger than 7 inches. By creating a "universal" bezel you could use your current display or upgrade to a larger screen, and still have the satisfaction of customizing your setup.

    Just trying to gauge the demand.

    Thanks,
    Sailin

    can't wait

    This unit does not even say what resolution it is, but OMG $250 for a double din Touchscreen DVD player with inputs and a remote!

    I use a laptop in my CVPI, but need an audio input to get my music to the car speakers, everything else is just a bonus, so in light of that I am buying it now! I hope it is not a big China disaster....

    I'm guessing it's NTSC/PAL video which is fairly low resolution and considered by most here to be inadequate for carpc's. Also considering it's only $250... if anything you could gut it out and install a better touchscreen.

    I've been waiting on the manufacture of my display to complete the interface board, they are currently about a month behind schedule.

    As far as this chassis;
    The design is for the most part complete. However since there was little interest on this site for it I may wait for the prototype to be complete before going into production, and then post some pics to stir up interest again.

    I'm interested!

    Just wanted to say I'm totally interested in your new product. I've searched but there isn't anyone who's put a CapPC into a same vehicle as mine (Mazda CX-7), and I'd much rather not do any custom dash mods. Thanks for your hard work.

    Exclamation 2-Din Chassis Status

    Way to long since I've posted an update.
    I've completed the chassis design but still make minor updates from time to time. The bezel is about 80% done, working on finishing a pcb that connects the buttons to computer via USB-HID much like the media buttons on a keyboard.
    Prototypes of the chassis have been promising and now I need to have some done for the bezel.

    Here are the current specs:
    6.95" Touch Screen:
    Resolution - 800x480 (WVGA)
    Brightness - 500 cd/m2
    Contrast - 500:1
    View Angle v/h - 115/135
    Operating temp -30C/+85C
    Storage temp -40C/+90C
    (Considering building a custom display controller that will have VGA & Composite for a rev. camera switched by external input) This will however, add time and $$...

    2-Din Chassis:
    180x100x165 (WxHxD)mm
    Standard DIN mounting holes
    Two I/O plates configurable for multiple interfaces
    Mounting holes for Nano-ITX, Pico-ITX, 3.5" SBC
    30mm fan on rear of chassis

    Bezel & HID-USB Buttons:
    186x104 (WxH)mm (this may change)
    Volume Up/Down/Mute
    Power/Reset
    7-user definable buttons
    Power & HD status LED's

    I've been busy with a bunch of projects so this one hasn't gotten 100% of my time but I'm still developing it.

    Maybe if interest rises again I'll focus more on it.. ;-)

    +1 Yup, interested in this chassis/screen combo. I'd be down for one depending on how it turns out.

    You asked the question a long time ago but it'd be nice if it was fairly easy to swap out the screen as newer screens come out or if something were to happen to the existing screen.

    I wouldn't mind even if you could make a version where it's only the chassis and I can add in my own screen. Just a thought.
