    Hi,

    P4 2.4
    768 RAM
    radeon 7000 Video

    "****tle". Heh. Funny.

    1) PIcs of your interior might help.
    2) It's your ******* car. Why don't you find a location that works for you?
    3) A 10" monitor, in my opinion, is best suited to a large dashboard area or a flip-down on the ceiling.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    I'm still trying to find a good reason for putting a 10" screen in a car! an 8" is huge in most cars. manufacturers use 6 to 7". As DP said, better suited to flip down and i presume he means for the rear passengers as if you do a flip down 10" in the front you anit gonna see ****!

    yeah 10 is kind of big but I thought 6 or 7 seemed small.

    Here are some pictures. This is not my car but mine is the same.

    I was going to install it in front of the sunroof there. It is a flip down. It will block the rearview though.
