    Thumbs up Single Din Screen?

    I have search to no avail. Is their really no good single Din VGA touch screens out their?
    I have found this, but no one has written a good review except the people trying to sell it.

    I want to keep the Alpine CD player. Mainly I don't want to fabricate a screen into my dash.

    Nope.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    Durability, mainly.
    The mechanicals are what tends to fail. From what I understand, the build quality of these units are sketchy at best.

    Gears and heat. Even the one from Xenarc sucks.

    The new $700 Xenarc one sucks big time. The only single din screen I would go for is the K301 (aka MTSVO), that one is built like a tank. Still not as durable as a fixed screen though of course.

    I will agree with Nobb. I have the K301. It is a project to find though. I bought it off someone from the forums about a year ago. I do have a problem with it though. Recently (and I believe it is due to my tinkering), the screen will not function correctly. For example, when I scroll my finger to the right, the arrow moves UP. when I move it UP, it goes to the RIGHT. And so on and so forth. Perhaps it is something with the drivers, although I have tried re-installing them.

    The screen you found here doesn't seem too bad though, perhaps I will give it a try, considering the cost.

    I had one and sold it to someone on the forums also, now I wish I didnt because I am trying to buy one again. Do you still have the screen? i wouldnt mind buying it from you, even with its issues. I now again need one for my install.
