    Question 1 DIN, 1.5 DIN, 2 DIN, what's a guy to do?

    I have a 1999 Buick Regal, and as far as I can tell, it's 1.5 DIN. I did some measurements, and it looks like a Lilliput 7" touchscreen won't fit in that hole. First off, has anyone fit it into a 1.5 DIN hole? Second, is it possible that I have a 2 DIN hole and I just don't know how to use a tape measure?

    Just measured: The hole is 3 7/8" tall, 7 1/8" wide.

    Thanks!

    Some cars actually do have a double din hole, but come plugged with a single din stereo and a half din ashtray or spacer. Behind that, you may find room for a double din. It may be best to visit a car stereo shop and ask if you can fit a double din in the hole, they are the ones that would know the best and/or can look it up.

    I can't find any figures online about how high a DIN slot is.

    In my car, the hole is 3 7/8" tall, 7 1/8" wide. Is that 1.5 DIN?

    My Jeep has a 1.5 DIN slot and I can't fit a screen in. You would probably be best buying one of the 1 DIN InDash LCD mounts at Digital WW.

    I don't think GM cars do double DIN.

    My Buick's got a 1.5

    That sounds like a double-din slot. I believe a din is 7" wide by 2" high.

    Since the height on mine isn't quite 4", does that sound like it's 1.5 DIN with a little slop to deal with the rounded corners of the rectangle?

    Also, do the Lilliputs fit in double DIN? Or 1.5 DIN? Otherwise, it looks like I have some cutting and fiberglassing ahead of me, and my wife is already in opposition to the project ("Finish the RV computer first" she sez, but then "I don't want to go on a vacation in the RV". Make up your mind, woman!)

    If you go to the Tweeter site here http://www.tweeter.com/car/index.jsp there is a "Fit Guide". According to that a 99 Regal has a double-din that is 6 7/8" deep.

    I don't know how accurate their info is but it seems a handy tool.
