    Hey Zip-Lock, will you post a link to the write-up done by the FPD guy that explains the difference in LCDs? I think it would help to clarify why the upgrade is priced how it is, once people better understand the process and labor involved. That write-up was great, very informative regarding different LCD technologies...

    So the touch screen will come un-attached? How much larger is the touch screen than the OEM one (i.e, how much will the bezel opening need to be expanded to avoid interfering with the TS)?

I dont know what the upgrade costs but the film that is used is only $175.00 on the FPD website. All though this is a Cool *** developement, the price is pretty high. Reasonable cost would be about $450.00 maybe $500.00. But close to $700.00 for a 7 inch screen.
    whoa My entire setup with the car cost about $2800.00. This would be 1/4 of my total project cost. Would bump my total project cost to about $3300.00.
    Raise your hand if you wanna drop that on a car computer setup.
    Sorry for the hard criticism but I was just a little surprised
    i feel the same way but you have to understand that 'new' technology has a premium. since there are very few manufacturers you have to deal with this type of pricing.

    Yes the Touchscreen comes unattached as shown in the picture of the kit. The touchscreen measures 103x165 mm.

    I added pictures of the LCD panel size to the store description

    Excellent diagram, thanks! Do you happen to know the dimensions of the active area of the touch screen? Presumably this should fall within the B-zone, right?

    Good question. I don't know, but I've asked. I'll post when I get an answer.
