    1din touchscreen recommendations?

    I'm just starting my project and looking at touchscreens first. I have a Vauxhall Astra 2002 (G), I don't really want to cut into my dash and so I have no obviously good places to place a screen other than my two separated 1din slots.

    And so I'm looking at screens that fit into a single 1din slot.
    I need help to know what is available and what to avoid...

    For example I've seen these 2 pop out sorts:
    CID700M / DWW-750FM
    Xenarc MDT-X7000

    What would people recommend?
    What other alternatives?

    Or I could consider a screen that was the size of the front plate of the 1din hole, but haven't seen any of those about.


    HELP PLEASE!

    I would take a look at some of the reviews of these units that already exist on the forums - there is plenty of information on quality, especially the MDT, to help you make the right decision.

    Woofnstuff - a friend pointed me to b-billion just yesterday... so many more options there . I guess manual is the way to go for reliability, but the Xenarc is so pretty I can't help considering it. Shame on me.

    Armine - The number 1 thing I've learnt from reading the forums is that every screen seems to have its problems, so its tough to know which screen has least problems.
    And the ones from b-billion have very few reviews unfortunately.
