remove the stock radio and put it in it's place. That's what I will be doing
edit: errr 12.1" might be too big LOL. you could probaby do some kind of simple swivel stand?
Got a bit of dilemma here. After closing a restaurant i managed to get my hands on 3 POS terminals.
All of them have 12" EloTouch screens:
(The mounts are detachable.)
2 of them go in the front seats(for the passengers in the back), but the problem is with the front. Where should i put it???
First i thought that top of the dash would be good, but then it'll be kinda hard to reach and will obscure the view. Then the idea was to put it over the radio(since it's dead anyway) at an angle to the driver, but how should it be done???
Simple console mount or serious fiberglass job??? Or maybe anything else i haven't thought about.
PLZ help, it's holding up my project.
12" screen??? It'll will never fit. The stock is 7" x 4".
EDIT:Not the best idea... Looks abit....you know...Originally Posted by blurp
A 12" screen is pretty huge to be putting up front. Will it fit in the radio area without blocking the vents or HVAC controls? Or maybe you don't mind blocking the vents.
How to do it really depends on you though - how much time/effort do you want to invest? how nice do you want it to look? It looks like you've got the basic options down.
You want an answer? Fiberglass up a console piece. I don't have to do the work anyway, and I'll enjoy seeing the results more than if you just bolted it into place
HVAC is moving it's place at first and then (after i fully workout the control algorithm) going on to the pc controller. Some 34 wires to take care of. Phidget is the key!!!
just get a new bloody car that a 12" will fit in!
personally i think a 12" in the dash is crazy. I would sell it and get summit smaller. but that me. If you want it, you will find a way.
Try rotating the screen 90deg, you should be able to find some software to support this config. I did this with an old 10.4 inch screen and it looked really cool in the dash.
....Yes, I know it has a stupid name, those crazy Japanese!
I'd put it in the mail and send it to me.
