    Giodi, can you get to the edges now? And why there must be a space between the lcd and the back of the sensor? Can't it just lay on top of it?

    I'm planning to use this on my 7" Xenarc, but If I'm not mistaken, the more space there is between the panel and the lcd glass, more reflectivity (and glare) is created (AFAIK that's why the most expensive transflective treatments are optically "bonded" so as to completely eliminate that space with some kind of "glue" - see here, among others.). I fear for fogging too, in the worst cases...

    Thanks for all the info, guys!

    Recently cracked the glass on my cheap 7" screen i got from onvon.com.So do i just take off my cracked glass and get this and connect(assuming connections are the same)and monitor should work,right?Still a noob at this stuff but if i can still fix my monitor without having to buy a new one and paying more money,that'll be great.Plus reading from other posts,capacitive seems to be better that resistive,right?

    I'll be following this pretty closely, as I'm tired of the squishy an unresponsive resistive screen I put in my girlfriend's Scion. I want something fancy for my car. Haha.

    Got the 7" in today. It beat the monitor here so I don't even have a screen to put it on. Monitor should be here by Wednesday and I'll crack it open, let you guys know how it goes.

    Monitor came in today, took it apart to take some pictures. I'll post them later got a lot more work to do and I'm waiting for the connector to come in from mouser so I can make the appropriate USB cable.

    One thing I meant to mention in my last post was; you could get the screen to fit into the original Lilliput 701 bezel. Looks like you would just need to trim down the mounting tabs that hold the screen into place (it fits pretty snug without them, and maybe bend the mounting brackets on the back of the screen because the capacitive screen is just a little bit thicker.

    Sorry for the lack of updates... just been too busy.

    So I think the reason I had the problem with the screen being in direct contact with the sensor is because I had it too tight. I replaced the original screws that hold the LCD in place with some longer 2-56 screws from RadioShack (they are in the drawers with the relays and stuff) and used some poster board to make a bezel between the screen and the back of the sensor.; It is working very well now. I also put some electrical tape on the sensor itself to cover the actual circuitry (for lack of a better term). It kind of feels like frosted glass and I am afraid of scratching it off and damaging the sensor since the bezel is so rough.

    The anti-glare coating on this screen with 1.7 million times better as I have been able to read at almost all times, except when the reflection of my hand in front of the screen. I do you a night (dark) skin so that could be making it worse. The screen also makes the display look much brighter and clearer. One of my lady friends even commented on it; She thought I replaced the whole thing.

    The one thing I do miss about the old TouchKit is the ability to do a right-click. the only way to do a right-click now is to go into the config utility and enable the right-click tool.

    Another thing to note that the whole viewable area and the touchable area on the sensor are not equal.

    Another quick update on the 7". Time to break out the Dremel! Finally got my double din mounting frame in today. Other than covering the hole for the IR sensor horizontally it is a perfect fit including the traces, thinner on one side thicker on the other. Only exposed portion in the setup is the viewable area.
    Vertically however it is exactly the same size as the frame so the task at hand is top open up the bottom as to fit the touch screen in and find a way to secure the whole deal into the frame. More updates to come, wish me luck.

    what OS are you running? If you're running Win7 with touch features enabled you just press and hold for right-click.
