    Lightbulb Lilliput installation in TM-701L housing extras

    If you haven't seen it already, there is a great writeup on installing your Lilliput in a TM-701L housing here:

    Writeup Lilliput installation in TM-701L housing

    This is a description of what I did beyond that.

    First off I did the indash conversion like everyone else, and the coyote auto-on mod.

    Then I replaced all of the cables from the LCD through the housing with one ribbon cable, and added a nice little quick connect in the LCD housing for when I have to take it apart.

    After all that ribbon cable stuff, I added a rocker switch to make it so the LCD only gets power when it is pulled out of the housing.

    Thats about it. Hopefully the pictures are worth 8000 words...

    really nice looking

    but it looks like you have the power 12V, ground, RCA video signals going thru the ribbon cable as well. WIll it stand the current? Any problems using the video input instead of the digital input?

    The ribbon cable I used was rated high enough I think.

    Haven't had any problems with any of the video inputs yet.
