    6.5" VGA touchscreen LCD?

    Is anyone aware of a 6" or 6.5" widescreen VGA touchscreen LCD that doesn't require taking out a loan to buy?
    Unfortunately a 7" LCD is just too big to fit.

    What size space are you trying to put this in? Does your car have a non-standard radio?

    taking out a loan? back when it cost me $240 for the tm-701L itself. Now its like that much for vga, you can't go wrong. And I can't say Ive ever heard of a 6" vga but im sure it exists.
    Mine needs to be updated.

    Yeah, 1.5 DIN.
    I would like to keep the factory bezel and not have to hack up the dash too much, so I only have a 3" tall opening. I think a 7" LCD is 3.6" tall, so I'm just guessing a 6 or 6.5" widescreen LCD would fit perfectly behind the bezel.

    Google and Ebay search pulls up nothing.
    I've only seen 6.5" widescreen built into $1200+ car stereos.
    I found some 5.8" widescreen NTSC. I plan to use big icons and big fonts, I don't know if NTSC will be adequate or not.

    You could always go with an in-dash LCD that comes out of a single DIN unit

    Yeah, that's true. I'd actually like to avoid those though, they are just so very non-factory looking.

    i don't suppose any of these have appeared since the last post in this thread 2 years ago? 7" is just a touch too big for my application i think. i see there is one on dww for $650. i really only need the screen though.
