Easily Modified Head Units for Mimics
It is quite clear that the mimics module is pretty easy to hook up to your standard 4 wire resistive Lilliputs. It's basically plug and play. But for those of us who wish to still have a head unit as part of our system, it seems the most logical choice would be to buy a double din aftermarket touchscreen head unit. That way, when the phone is not in the car with us, we still have touch screen head unit functionality. Has anyone had any experience with modifying a double din head unit to work with the mimics module?
What I think would be the easiest way to make it work would be to buy one of the 6 inch models with detachable screens. Then you could just relocate the main head unit, and keep the screen part behind the dash. This would allow plenty of room to modify the touch screen and add the mimics module.
What seems hard to find out is which head units are resistive touch screens (Do they make capacitive double din head units yet?). And of these touch screens which have the standard 4 wire resistive ribbon cable that is compatible with the mimics module.
Any thoughts, ideas, or past experience would be helpful. Thanks!
