    would this module work with a 3M capacitive touch panel?

    i already have a transflective screen with a capacitive touch panel(i believe it is 3M brand), and i would like the option for the outputs, just don't like the idea of needing to swap everything(i already have 3 screens--i'm not keen on buying yet another screen...)

I really think putting the whole thing behind the bybyte takes away from the coolest factor.

    But what i mocked up above is what im going to do when these are available as long as you could cut the tempered glass to my specific size of my dash That i posted a few posts back. Im have a minitouch with capacitive right now, but like the look to yours over the bybyte frame look. And the active area is only off by a few mm, this will work awesome.

    Oh, my apologies.. I thought you were referring to a bybyte frame!!

    The mounting is not really much of an issue, its just that bit of the screen that gets clipped if you use a 4:3 display.

    According to my double din bezels and dash kits, 173x98mm for the glass will be an exact fit (with rounded corners). You said your double din opening was 111x190mm, do you have a standard double din bezel that you can put in as this should give you a standard size cutout area of 173x98mm.

    Or maybe this as an easier alternative?

    Here is a standard DIY double DIN frame plate that actually has guides behind it that locate the bybyte frame exactly. So the bybyte can be easily glued to this. If you look carefully you will see that this plate with the bybyte behind creates a recess which the glass can perfectly fit in for a flush in installation. The good side of this is that you can easily use the bybyte for the LCD housing. The only down side is that you will need to cut this plate to whatever your dash opening is. You will also need to trim the bybyte opening to fit the LCD as it will now be mounted closer to the face of the frame.

    The cut out of this plate is 173x98mm, which is the same as the metra kits & bezels (the ones i have got anyway).

    This plate is actually made for this purpose and the surface finish is outstanding quality.

    I wish! unlike 4 & 5 wire resistive touchscreens, there are no standards with capacitive touchscreens. They all have different controllers and drivers that vary across brands. If I did do it, it will cost allot more that my "matched" solution.

    Also, is you 3M panel multi-touch, or is it the surface capacitive 5-wire type?

    All this is kinda confusing. Im not going to put my lcd or this touch panel inside a bybyte frame at all. I just need to know if you can have the tempered glass piece, not the touch panel itself, cut to 111mm x 190mm? When its in my dash, all you will see is the tempered glass black frame, nothing from the bybyte frame is glued to the front of the glass. The image I posted above was a shot from behind showing how the lcd will be attached to the glass using only the bracket from the bybyte frame. And the red blocks are acrylic pieces glued to the back of the tempered glass so the lcd has a spot to rest it.

    Can you just post a pic of the back of the touch panel attached to the glass?

    I know what your trying to achieve, I just thought fixing it to a bybyte frame would make it more secure as opposed to the tempered frame.

    Here is a side view of the glass attached to the touch panel. PS. the total thickness is ~1.3mm. The touch panel is 165 x 95mm (active LCD area is smaller).


    I don't know if my manufacturer is willing to custom cut a different size tempered glass for each order, as a special tool needs to be made for the size. I was actually looking for a more standard size hence the suggestion of the custom plate or a double din bezel.

    I hope this has clarified things

    If you use you perspex idea, you will only have 2.5mm top and bottom to play with and about 13mm left and right.

    Yea thanks. The only real advantage for me to buy this would be the front glass that is attached, and if im gonna have to stick it in a dash kit or bybyte frame it would be exactly what I have now. Thanks for all your helo tho, I do appretiate it.

    No probs..
    Your double din opening sounds close to (117.84 x 187.77) which is (4-5/8" x 7-3/8") which is a fairly common opening size.

    Would you be happy with this size? then maybe use a few mm of rubber trim to seal the rest?

    Ahhhhh You have monitor options. Now you really have me interested!
    What would be the pricing on a monitor and touchscreen combo as you are in Australia this might work out far cheaper for me.
    On that note would it be possible for one option to be have the tempered glass the same size as the external dimensions of the screen with just a few mm of extra glass than the active area? You can still make a bigger one but this might be handy for anyone that the other option is too big..
    I am pretty sure my dash is a bit smaller than double din and I want it to be removable so want to put it in a case and have it fit through the hole in the dash. I think a raw monitor can just fit through.

    Well, yes I do have monitors but I wasn't really intending to sell them yet as I wanted this to be an add on to reduce cost.
    For the monitor I need to make an adaptor for the LCD so it's not quite ready yet

    What is the size of your opening and I will tell you if the monitor will fit. The monitor is smaller than the lilliput and only 2mm thick, so it might fit in your cut-out. This monitor will be great if you require to mount your monitor away from your driver board. Not sure how many people need to do that though.

    The lcd is 101x163x2mm. So hopefully this will fit. I think the height of standard double din is 98mm so you might be 2mm off!

    173x98mm by my rough measuring.
    But I will send you a pm as what I want is complicated
