    Nice to see another Mazdaspeed owner hacking that motorized housing from china. I own the same thing and modified it with a transflective lilliput from the mp3car store. Are you running the stock monitor and controller? or is that a lilliput?

    CAPACITIVE!!





    Holy-cow. Talk about a significant improvement in glare reduction. The first resistive touch photo had similar lighting as capacitive, so side by side comparison is in order.

    I will post more pictures when it is sunny! Gloomy day today.

    Don't know of one for sure but you can go here and input your screen's dimensions to find out.

I mounted mine to the side of the double DIN LCD kit and just ran a ground wire from the screw hole on the board to a ground point that was relatively close, I just do that out of habit with cards like this as the screw holes tend to be common ground.
    Grounding it to the LCD panel/controller seemed to work great. The noise is more or less gone, and the calibration has improved significantly. Much improved overall. Way better than the resistive panels.

    Thanks

    @thanh510:
    THANK YOU for the awesome pictures!!!!!!

    This was all i needed to convince me to do this mod.

    @antimatter
    I am glad to see someone else has the 7" transflective lilliput from the mp3car store. You substituted the original resistive touchscreen for the capacitive? I have had this monitor in my car for about 4 months and I am not convinced it was the best solution as far as the clarity and resistive squishyness. The pictures are like night and day, plus i am so sick of the amount of force that is needed to make the resistive touchscreen react.

    I already ordered the parts and they should be here in three days. I cant wait to do this modification.

    I got mine from online components last week, it fit perfectly between the stock LCD mount screw holes in my 2006-ish EBY-701 bezel.
    i will need to get longer screws, as the capacitive touchscreen is a little thicker, but the thing looks goregeous! VERY MUCH worth the $68 i spent.

    Can you post pictures. Is this the 7"?

    Has anyone done this to any transflective screens.... if so is it worth it?
