    I have 2 lilliputs mounted in the TM-701L in-dash assemblies. I can't recommend the in-dash assemblies. If I were to do it again, I would either wait for a better solution to come to market, or make a custom in-dash unit myself.

    The quality of the TM-701L is not what you might expect. My first impression of it was that it was cheap and poorly designed. There are problems with the wiring as well. First off, since one of your major connections is a vga signal, it needs to be shielded. Most shielded vga cables are too stiff to stand up to the constant bending of the in-and-out dash movement. The cable has to fold up in the rear of the unit when the screen is stashed. The unit lacks any mechanism to facilitate the cable folding up properly. You're really screwed if the cable does not fold properly the first time - especially if it is shipped like that and sits for days. One of my units was like this. I am currently rewiring it because it will not close without the cable binding up in the spring mechanism in the back of the unit. I tried many times to get the cable to bend correctly, but once it developed a "habit" it was all over. I have a friend in the electronics/component assembly bussiness and he is researching a better cable assembly and wiring for me. I am hoping to make it available once I'm done with mine and happy with it.
    So far:
    M10000 Nehemiah, 1Gb RAM, Opus 90w PS, Buffalo Tech WLI2-USB2-G54, 160 Gb HDD, GlobalSat BU-353 GPS, iGuidance, Zippy EL-610, Panasonic CW8123B Slim Slot CDRW/DVD, 10" Lilliput, Sony XA-300, Sony CDX-MP30 Head, OBD-II

    Has anyone found a suitable in-dash housing besides the digitalww one for a lilliput that's retail or even custom made yet? I looked over the how-to for digitalww's, and that's just too much unsolder/soldering for me to attempt, and I'd rather not ship my screen off either.

    Just wondering if someone's found a solution to keep the screen as close to stock as possible.

    I know I've been saying it alot but here is my two main concerns which noone seems to be able to answer:

    1) If you want to keep lilliput or xenarc in its original housing, how would you stick a 7.75" screen into a 7" hole?
    2) Doesn't disasembling the monitor, and especially soldering it void the warranty?
    Never be afraid to do something yourself. Remember - amateur built the Ark, professionals built the Titanic.
