I got a kick out of that question. DIN is short for Deutsche Industrie Norm (a standard for German industry). The standard is actually DIN 7736. The exact dimmensions are 178mm x 50mm x 150mm. (one inch is 25.4mm).Originally Posted by arkadiyp
The DIN standard actually posts a depth. That was news to me. So I guess in order for an auto manufacturer to say that they have a DIN compatible radio they need to have at least 150mm depth.
I also found this Answer here:
It says DIN is 2"x7" Double din is 4"x7" etc. (These are close...non-metric appoximations)
BTW. The web site http://www.installdr.com/ mentioned above is pretty cool if you want to replace your factoy deck, and you want to know what all the wires do.
