Standalone GPS to replace in dash Lilliput?
My carpc has been slowly evolving over the last 3 years or so, but one thing remains constant. The components are almost always sitting on my desk. I'd say over its entire life, it's been actually installed an running for about 6-8 hours. After recently discovering that my lilli controls and remote no longer work, and that my M2atx is acting up, I've decided to accept the fact that I will never make the time to get this thing running properly.
What I'd like to do is replace the Lilliput with a 7" standalone unit. So far I'm considering either the out of production Garmin streetpilot 7200
or the new Magellan 1700
The Garmin is thicker, so I'd probably have to remove the in dash center speaker which sits behind the screen, but it accepts external antenna. The Magellan is thin enough to fit easily, but it doesn't accept an external antenna, so reception could be a problem.
I know this is completely against the whole purpose of this site, but I figured I check anyway and see if anyone had any other suggestions. :peep:
Here is a picture of my current installation:
