    confirmed features of 2008 lilliputs!

    I just received the last in stock 2008 lilliput (model 629GL-70NP/C/T) and after entering the menu code of 588998 i'm subjected to a new "hidden" menu display. The display has like 3 pages of hidden options. Most i didnt touch but the two i was interested in were the auto-on and the auto-switch... BOTH of which are available options i have confirmed working. That on top of the fact they're using LEDs for a brighter display make this model lilli tough to beat. Cant wait to get it installed in the car.

    Last night I was able to get the auto-on working also, but what does the auto-switch do?
    Why buy it if you can build it? Even if it cost twice as much to build.

    auto-switch switches to video 2 whenever the device on video 2 is powered. So if you have say a camera hooked to video two and power it while the car is in reverse, the lilli will automatically switched to that input.

    havent got the chance to test it i just started rebuilding my bezel.. but i cant say the brightness setting is different.. instead of just "lightening" up the colors it actually controls the brightness of the leds.. 100% brightness now completely washing out the colors... before 100% brightness was pretty much a neccessity

    Thanks for the info!

    Thanks,

    Also interested in sunlight readability like everyone else compared to the equivalent 2008 Xenarc 700TSV?

    A few others for comment if you have a spare moment;

    - I keep reading lilliput's have problems with 800x480 resolution, is this still the case?
    - Type of mount, is VESA option avaliable?
    - Is Power, USB, RCA and VGA cables etc combined?

    Regards,
    DEM_968.

    in my brief testing i didnt see a 800x480 option using my nvidia mx4400 card. I have no idea what VESA is, but its the same mount that has come with the lilly's since teh beginning of time. The power wire is seperate from the video wire. All other wires hook up to a clamped wire to insure they're properly installed and usb as always is at the computer end of the VGA cable
