I'm having a weird issue I can't figure out. in ride runner, when i go to view my music playlist, you can click on a song to select it. For some reason, it is very difficult to touch click a song, but everything other click works fine (back, load, up/down, etc.) just the window that selects a song. If I use my normal mouse it clicks no problem. I did the draw test in the driver and it seems calibrated and fine. I tried 2 different skins in RR and it does the same thing.
btw - the calibration program keeps crashing on me after I finish clicking dot - Win7 64 bit. Is that normal?
Any questions, please email to [email protected] :)
Not all Car PC installations allow room for the enclosure. This is why many people take a standard Lilliput screen and take the guts (the LCD, the controller, and the button board) out of the plastic enclosure to mount into their own custom bezel.
The problem with doing this is the controller board has to somehow be mounted to the back of the LCD panel. Either with double-sided tape (not good) or that flimsy Bybyte H-Bracket.
For this to truly be a good Car PC LCD, the controller board needs a way of being securely mounted to the back of the LCD panel. Is there any way to have the LCD panel custom made so that the metal frame holding the LCD and other glass panels together can also have mounting tabs for the controller board?
Here's an LCD panel with the controller board mounted to the back of the metal enclosure: http://alpha-complex-rnd.com/main/gallery/1/Lcd_06.JPG
Here's an Acura factory LCD where the controller board is mounted onto a bracket attachedto the panel. http://www.mp3car.com/lcd-display/60...-acura-tl.html
It's much more secure and durable than anything I've yet to see from Lilliput, Xenarc, etc...

Actually, there is an opportunity for even more "flexibility"
I am creating a flip out screen from an old flip out unit:
I can't fit the board behind the screen. If there was an option to "relocate" the board then it would be much better. I used an adapter and zif cables to extend it.
Just thinking out loud here - this seems to be a "community designed, ultimate Car PC display". The functionality has been worked out pretty well by the community but I don't see the same sort of thought going into the mounting system. (I know, many here are happy shoving a uATX board loosly into the glove box and calling it a day, I tend to lean more towards OEM quality...)
Derrick, maybe i am going to far asking this but how easy do you think it is going to be to change the LED behind these buttons?
cause now i want them to look the same way my internal lights does (light blue) and i would be either changing the leds to colored ones or applying colored film (like people does to mod their backlit keyboards).
do you think either one is an option?
