    capacitive touchscreen with controller

    this is interesting. A company overseas sells capacitive TS - the glass screen and controller. This is applied over a standard monitor.

    A few things i'm wondering about:

    First and foremost: if used with CentraFuse/RoadRunner/StreetDeck will the touchscreen capabilities be a lot smoother than resistive ts? Would they be close to an iPhone-like interaction?

    Second: I emailed the represantive, Jackie Golding, inquiring about price and there is a minimum order of 20 units @ $141.00 each or 80 units @ $131.00 each. Maybe we can find a vendor? Or maybe MP3Car will consider carrying this item.

    Third: I want one!

    That's too big for most installs - it fits an 8.4" screen (although *I* would go for one since I have an 8.4"!). However, they do have a 7 inch display size.

    You can get mp3car to allow a group buy if you arrange all the details with the manufacturer.

    I'd be in for a 7" if a group buy happens.

    But Digikey doesn't list any of the 3M widescreen touchscreens, but only regular 4:3 dimensions.
    The touchscreen mentioned in this topic is a 7'' widescreen format.

    Has anyone tried this route yet? I'm about to order a "98-0003-3112-8" as soon as I can find one... Going to try and replace the Xenarc resistive overlay with it.

    Wouldn't you also need a new controller board if you switch to capacitive?
