I am planning to get the 1040VT as well. Did you take the LCd out of it's casing ? I am planning to mold the screen into my dash but the 1040VT with the case is a bit too big to fit my dash and I coudln't find any info on the size without the casing. If you have the info please kindly pass it to me so I could start on my project ! Have you tried hooking up the screen yet ? How's the picture quality ?
Hope you can help me out !
