    do you think either one is an option?
    It will be not that easy I think because it is touch-sense buttons. We are trying to adding a color changing LED but not confirmed yet. Also, colored film should be a idea
    Any questions, please email to derrick.ny@gmail.com :)

    Red, blue, green and white should cover most of the colours needed to match most interiors. Selectable via the menu?

    (For the record, I am not interested in the bezel, just thought I'd share my ideas.)
    Yes, this is exactly the way we want to go. But it needs to develop a software to set the color, so not just the LED

    Again, thanks for sharing your idea! We need this to build a better product.

    The gutting of that flipout unit is for the premade structure. If they simply added say, ribbon connections, I could easily acquire ribbons for the extension.
    You are right, if the flip out structure is not pre-made. It is not easy to get a smooth and trouble-free unit

    Dip-switcher and jumpers are a better idea than the software control. Let me check if the board is still changeable

    Really for this to be the "ultimate car PC" display, it needs a 600 - 700 nit brightness with a button to cycle through a variable backlight level to make it suitable for night use.
    Yes, 260 nit won`t made a ultimate display, but it is acceptable, especially when adding a little shade

    We all know 600~700 nit screen will be the bast, the problem is, cost will become very very high...

    There probably isn't a good answer without being able to insert your own symbols, wait a minute...

    The aux and USB ports a pretty close together to be able to use both at the same time.
    Thanks for your reply. We also considering arrows

    The distance of Aux and USB ports are fix now. they won`t be too close anymore.

    We tried to make simple dots before, but consider this screen sometimes operate by the passenger, not the driver. When we have some icons, it will be easier to say "hey, press the cross to show the map for me". lol

    Do you have the final dimensions now? For some reason, (may be the photography angle), I still get a feel that the bottom-rear lip is a bit too long to fit some vehicles.

    Also did you try plugging an Aux Cable? Looks a bit too close to the edge and the aux cable shell might interfere with the vehicle console edges.

    BTW, any plans to sell them without the LCD Panel for customers who already has the resistive touch screen panels?
    Now we are waiting for the final confirm about the capacitive screen. it delays a little bit. Plus, there is a 3~5 days holiday in China in April. We hope to have them available in around a month

    There will be two version, capacitive or resistive. Another option is a full computer integrated. Here is the final dimension, the outer dims never change:

    The Aux port, is already touch the edge of the screen, so we can not move it on horizontal way anymore. We will figure out something, or maybe put in a short extend cable which have a small "head".

    Regarding to the enclosure only. Sure, this project is a team work by everybody here. We will sell it alone to friends who ordered the screen before. There is no reason to ask people pay for a LCD panel which they have already

I feel along side/recessed would be cleaner looking so it doesn't stick out too far. However would the bezel need a small lip to sit up against the back side of the DD kit to seal out any light that may bleed through from the back? As mentioned earlier, I also wonder about the Aux jack having enough clearance for a standard 1/8" plug? At the same time though there are some smaller plugs made now that fit into tight cell phone cases and whatnot so could just use one of those.

    EDIT: After looking at the Rev B pics again maybe my newbie-ness is shining through. Is the DD kit just some brackets that allow you to mount the screen into a vehicle specific DD kit like you would with any DD stereo unit? If that is the case then disregard my comments above.

    Other than that I am really interested in this screen and waiting on it to be released before beginning my first CarPC build.
    Here is how the bezel connect to the DD case. Also, you can see more photos on page 106 in this thread
