I wouldn't but one now, but I think if you don't want to do a flip out in dash, a screen that fits exactly into a double DIN space in a car would be nice. I would also like to see some sort of brightness that could be controlled via USB or Serial, so I would be able to change it on the fly from within windows. Alternatively, I would like to see a day/night line that I could trigger via a relay or something.Originally posted by dscustoms
My manufacturer in Taiwan keeps telling me he can make a better screen than the xenarc/gain screens. Better LCD panel, maybe an 8", Better connection on the controller card and power supply. I guess we can use the same touchscreen too. Anyone have any ideas on improving it?
This would not be a bunch of random parts, They would be brand new and built and assembled by a real manufacturing company. DSCustoms would probably buy the tooling, so it would be really inexpensive for us to produce them.
If people could just post some features, or design ideas (mounting, look) I'd pass them on to the engineers.
Please don't say in-dash. The housings are so much more complicated and expensive. At this point, we will try the GAIN/Xenarc indash when available and see how it goes. If theirs is too expensive, maybe then we will have one made.
If there is extra room around the screen, I would also like to see a knob that could be used for volume and/or some simple unused pushbuttons.
