    If you want to send your bezel in for a test fit we can do that for you.
    I like the idea of not having to worry about fabrication. and it looks like you have excellent feedback. but the price is more than what i paid for my monitor. this mod is something i'm interested in mainly because I noticed the $60 - $70 price tag. So far i've spent less than $400 on my carpc, and that was hard enough to justify to the girlfriend. Especially when you consider we just bought a house, a truck, a travel trailer and had our first child!

I got it in the other day and took apart my lilliput EBY701 and the screen will fit perfectly over the old one after removing the resistive cover. It will take a little fabrication to shave off the little tabs it has in there as the capacitive screen is thicker and larger then the resistive one. I have not gotten to the fab part yet but it def can be done. If you are looking to make this change you are gonna have to know there will be a little fab work involved.

    I was skeptical when i first bought this not knowing what i was going to get but for that $67 you get the 3M capacitive screen, controller, and the USB cable which means you will have EVERYTHING you need to just replace the resistive screen. When i start testing and putting back together with my fab work i will post pictures...

    where did you get this for $67?
    i want to replace the resistive screen on my aging eby701

    Post #23 shows exactly what you get. This is the website i bought it at

    http://www.onlinecomponents.com/buy/...8-0003-3112-8/

    The 7' system which INCLUDES the controller is 98-0003-3112-8. Then you need to search for the 7312256 part number which is the USB to MOLEX cable that plugs into the 3M controller and makes it a complete set up.

    So for price the 3M Capacitive screen was about $45, the USB cable was i think $13 and shipping was $9 and i received it in about 4 days from order. So it total about $67.

    If you don't have the skills to fabricate or if you don't feel like going through the hassle then you can buy the one on ebay from tft_lcd_org. but for about $100 cheaper you can get this and DIY. I figured most people on this forum and looking into this has already fab'd a lot for their set up and are completely capable of doing this.

    Just my 2 cents.

    You are correct. I'd like to here what your results were though. Did you ever complete the install? do you have pics? I know it's been suggested that the screen is to big for the plastic eby701 DoubleDin kit, but the inside measurements for mine are 6 3/4" x 4 1/8" which means that it should fit horizontally but not vertically. and since all the mounts on the DDIN frame are on the sides, i could probably get away with hanging over the top and bottom. and in my application, the screen is inset by about a 1/2" so the overlap would be hidden behind the dash... i hope! any thoughts?

    This is unfortunately the attitude a lot of people have with a lot of hobbyist forums, and it often isn't the case.

    You are exactly correct, it is perfect horizontally, and just a fraction over vertically. So little over in fact that once I dremeled out the top and bottom of the double din kit it sits in there perfectly, and the plastic there isn't very thick. Like I've said before as well, the traces in the screen are just about perfect other than about 1/4 inch exposed on the side opposite the ribbon cable (left side, the traces on the right side are much larger and fit much better in that orientation). Another issue is, don't plan on using the hole for the IR receiver either; with the screen being such a close fit, it completely covers it. One last thing, I think its an issue with the screen being thicker, but I also had to do a little cutting on the kit at the area where the VGA/RCA/PWR/etc. cable plugs into the 701's board. I could maneuver it in there where the cable wasn't bent too drastically, but I'm not a big fan of cables touching anything they don't have to in an application with so much vibration.

    I finally got around to installing the 3M capacitive screen into my EBY701 and it fits beautifully. I took a dremmel and shaved off the clips that held in the old resistive screen and LCD.

    The Capacitive glass fit literally almost perfectly inside the mounting screw location. It overhangs the actual open area but 1/4 to 1/2 an inch in certain places. I placed the LCD on the back and used the securing tabs which screw into place to secure it on top of the capacitive glass. Connected everything back together, plugged it in and vuala! 10 times more clearer then with the resistive face.

    I had to install the 3M software from their website because Windows 7 didn't recognize the controller as a pen and touch application. Once the software was installed it calibrated excellently and worked like a charm. The capacitive touch is very fluid and easy to touch, its not hard like the resistive screen. The accuracy was a lot better as well, there is an option with the calibration to adjust how close to the edges the touch goes.

    I am VERY pleased with my purchase and it was exactly what i was hoping for. When i fabricate the front of the monitor with the bezel in my car I will go the whole 9 yards and seal the connection between the capacitive screen and monitor front as well as with the LCD behind it. But for now it was a successful test with outstanding results.

    I have pictures of it installed and of me doing the fab work with the dremel but the dimensions of the pictures are too big to upload for here i guess.... If anyone wants to send me a msg i can send them via email..

    If anyone has any questions about this just let me know, i'll be more then happy to inform anyone who is thinking about doing this. I was a little skeptical at first but i figured why not and i'm so glad i did.

    Still highly recommended to anyone who wants to go capacitive...

    I had noticed that as well... and i have no problem rerouting the ir sensor somewhere else. I was just wondering if anyone had any thoughts on how to either fill the hole or hide it? i'd like this to look like a finnished product when it's done.

    Why don't you host the pictures on photobucket or picassa and embed the pics by links or just post the links
