So...anyone want to fit one of these monsters into their dash?
Uses infrared for multitouch overlay, not sure if its better/worse for a car environment, im assuming it does mean no overlay to make the screen harder to read.
But its an IPS screen, so VERY wide angle viewable area, fantastic colour reproduction on it too. And all that with DVI and VGA input, plus a USB hub for less than the price of a simple 7 inch screen.
I'm tempted to pick one up to give it a spin in my car, but I would have to make up some kind of mount that would grip my dashboard crossbar (The tribute has a 3 inch diameter steel bar inside the dash, perfect for fixing a screen mount to), that would poke out of the double din hole, and grip this monitor.
That...and I think i might need an upgrade, not sure how well the atom would drive 1920x1080
HijackZX1....how much of your dash can you cut away?
Just the person I was hoping would drop into the post
Have you played with the IR based touchscreen overlays much? If so, how would you rate them? From what I can see they would be nicer than resistive purely for the fact that the protective sheet over the screen would be clear, not "misty" like a resistive panel, but I'm not sure if they would be as good as capacitive?
Funny, all the pictures show no wires...for HDMI or even AC power. Looks so cool and clean and light and practical....So it has RF HDMI and a tiny battery?
I think not.
I was going to just stick it to the front of the dash and pray for video...I am running Centrafuse after all, so its probably not going to work anyway lol
The biggest problem w/IR is the panels are always so much bigger that the screen when it comes to buying one as an add-on.
Digi-Key sells several sizes of IR touch kits, which I have used and they are awesome. But they are $$.
I would like to take apart that Dell and see how theirs is.
