    Double-Din touch screen LCD?

    I have a stock double-din headunit on my '00 xterra, and i wanted to do the whole carputer setup, however all the 7" touch screens i've seen seem wider than double-din, and i prefer a standalone double-din, instead of a single-din motorized one, i want the screen to pretty much just stay there, if worst comes to worst i can cut out the dash a little wider for it to fit, but is there any double-din sized touch screen LCD's i can use?

    I believe the 7" screen is smaller than the opening.
    The double-din is 7" wide by 4" tall....
    The screen is actually less than 7" wide and just less than 4" tall(without the housing).

    Check the newbie section for Lilliput and Xenarc Stickies.

    Good Luck!

    Check out this link if you are looking for a good fit in a double-din:

    Really clean install if you don't want to mod your dash.
    The superfluous, a very necessary thing.

    thats really tight, that may be just what i need, however the measurements of the liliput monitor were more than 7" wide and more than 4" high, i'm referring to the 7" touchscreen LCD by them. thats whats confusing me. i was also looking at the dynamix ultrabrite 7" lcd.

    The lilliput has a slightly smaller housing than the xenarc. I'm putting my xenarc into a double din hole at the moment, I bought a conversion facia for my car and am going to take a dremmel to it in the morning.. hopefully I'm going to try and fit the xenarc including the buttons.. we shall see

    I too am looking for a clean install for a double din. Without shredding the console. My idea is to use the headrest shroud of the lcd to mount on the empty double din case. Then, cut the back out of the shroud. Install pins on the sides of the lcd and inner part of the shroud so i can swivel the screen and also lift the screen to access the mac mini that will be so cleverly sitting behind it. If all goes well of course.
