    New Guy Looking for help picking his screen

    I am ordering my carputer tomorrow. I've done alot of research figuring out what my best bet was, but my only problem now is figuring out which moniter to go with.

    I was going to go with the lilliput 7" VGA touchscreen, but I I dont want to regret it if the xenarc is that much better.

    I dont mind spending the extra money but if there is no difference i'd rather not.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks Mike

    i assume that you have a 2003 cadillac cts? if so my buddy has the same car and i seen the dash is friggin huge..i say you can do a nice 8 inch lilliput or even a 10.4 if you want something that big. but if your stuck on 7 inch the xenarc has better options like autoswitching to a video source when a video input is applied.(rearview cam)

    Yup... 2003 CTS

    The only way to put the bigger screen in there is to remove the DIC options, which I cant do because it controls the whole car.

    So what im doing is cutting out the stock cd player and tape player and its a perfect 7" opening.. so thats the biggest I could go.

    But is the xenarc that much better tyhat its worth the extra 150 more than any other 7" screen?

    this isnt mine but its basically the same thing the only difference is that mine has a tape player right abouve the cd....

    This controls all the special features of the car... such as personalization, mirror moves in reverse and a bunch of other stuff.

    If he doesnt mind removing it than they make an instal kit for a 7" screen

    There used to be a quality difference between Xenarc and Lilliput. That's why I went with Xenarc. However, at the last meet, Zip-Lock from mp3car.com told me that the new Lilliputs were much improved and just as good as the Xenarcs.

    I presume he would know but there's your testimonial.
