    8.4 and 10.4 flip down screens

    Hi folks,

    I have found a source for 8.4 and 10.4 overhead console flip-down VGA screens, which I'm sure I could add a TS to.

    Would anyone want such an animal???

    thanks,

    -Mike

    Some more details would help, then we may be able to anwer you question. Things like cost, resolution, brightness?
    A link would be even better where we could actully see the screens.

    Sorry, I was in a hurry when I posted this. The mfr does not have these new items on their site yet, and as far as price, that would depend if I upgraded them to touchscreen or not. With out the touchscreen the 8.4 will be in the 350-400 range, and the 10.4 would be in the 450-500 range. both come with integrated dome light, IR transmitter for IR headphones, remote control, 1 VGA, 1 video, and have 800x600 native res. the biggest problem I see is the brightness level. First answer from the mfr was 200db? , if they mean cd/m2 and that is the correct rating, they may not be bright enough. but if there is enough intrest, I would order a sample for testing. However, since I have only received one response, It looks like there is little interest in roof mount flip-top vga screens.

    Do you have to host pics elsewhere on the net to show them here? Or is there a picture post section? If so, I can post the pics.

    You'd think so, but I can't find them anywhere!
    See my thread: Can't find 10.4/10.2" VGA screen

    hmmm, I woulda thought.... guess I never really looked...

    have you considered mounting a laptop upside down?

    either that, or as others have suggested just get a used 10.4 cheap, then re-gut it... I have a 15.2" widescreen dropdown & was considering my options to have that used with a pc, but decided to just add seperate screens in the rear seats instead, although I did consider using a widescreen laptop to redo the overhead...

    Yes, I'm still considering re-gutting (as seen in my thread), but I would like to see if there is anything available that will work out of the box, with the most modifications having to be done being a touchscreen overlay.

    I am pretty sure that xenarc makes vga flip downs, possibly even touchscreen.

    Icon-tv has a full line of of vga flip downs, NON touchscreen, 7" to 17".

    Also don't let the msrp on there website freak you out, its way over inflated!
