    Double Din: room for 7" lcd & slot load DVD?

    It looks like there is enough room to fit a 7" LCD and a slot load DVD/CD drive in a Double-DIN space. However, I haven't seen any projects yet that have done it.

    I'm sure this is obvious but just in case, here are examples of the products:

    Example 7" LCD:
    Example slot-load DVD:

    What I'm wondering is--are there any projects doing this that I have just missed? If not, is there some reason why this is avoided that I may not be aware of?

    I would really like to have both a 7" touch screen and slot-load cd drive in the dash, professional looking and everything. So, I would prefer not to move the LCD up on a stand or anything like that.

    You haven't seen it because with only a standard douple DIN opening, it will NOT fit both.
    Height it the main problem.

    yeah it won't fit. the only way people with golfs do it is by losing the cupholders above the double din

    Yeah, I wouldn't be able to fit both in my DoubleDIN with the TView screen.
