Original Concept Failed, Need Ideas for a New Approach
I have a Collector Edition 2002 Pontiac Trans Am, being that it is a collector edition, I'm not willing to do any noticeable custom fabrication, which is a big limitation. It needs to look as stock and professional as possible without removing any of the stock features such as steering wheel controls, dashboard panels, gauges or a/c vents, etc.
My original concept was to have a mini laptop plugged into a single din flip out touchscreen. the laptop would be stored in the glove box, and would charge with an ac to dc adapter.
well, i ran into 2 idea killing problems:
1. my soundgate remote3 steering wheel control adapter does not work with any single din vga touchscreens i can find, and not having steering wheel controls just won't do for me.
2. i bought a xenarc mdt x7000 and frankly my stock headunit had better functionality sounded better than this piece of garbage.
so, can anyone suggest a vga lcd touchscreen product that will fit this space without any custom fabrication. I'm not willing to relocate anything and the opening is about 1.5 din, not double din.
i bought the x7000 because it had a dvd drive and radio built in, as well as usb ports, but it's just too buggy for normal use. i'm willing to lose the radio and dvd now, but i need a good flipout screen. any suggestions?
