8 inch Widescreen LCD in double Din
OK, i have read the forums and most people say you can't fit an 8 inch screen in a double din slot, But am i about to prove them all wrong ?
Well, i'm not sure , but i have been doing some measuring and have found that a WIDESCREEN 8 inch may fit. Most people seems to be talking about 4:3 screen and yes they are too tall to fit. But the visible screen area ( if i have it correct) for a 8 inch WIDESCREEN is exactly the same size as the front of a double din unit 7" x 4", so it looks like a screen will fit behind the opening for the Double din unit if the plastic casing is removed from the screen and if there is room for the curcuit boards to over lap the edges. if you get the idea.
Here is a little Drawing i knocked up to show what i mean.
