    thanks for the suggestion. I will check out iGuidance.

    would you happen to know the pinout of the 13 pin din plug that is located on the back of the display?
    it's not a big deal, but having the RGB option would be nice.

    Rock,

    The problem you had with your gear is very common when taking appart and reassembling the screen. My advice? There is a simple solution, use a pair of pliers, pull that gear off while the screen has power. Hit the button to turn it on, the shaft will spin freely, hit it again to close the screen and the shaft will spin again. Now that it is at its closing point go ahead and put the gear back on the shaft.

    Why do we press the button? So the motor can set its starting and stopping points on its own.



    As for the Voom case, I mounted mine under the passanger seat. I used small 1 1/2in wood blocks to elevate the case above the floor mounted AC vents giving it enough ground and seat clearance.

    I ran the wires by tucking them up in to the center console from the bottom. Excellent clean fit. I made things easier by running a USB cable from the PC to the dash and put in a USB-Hub in the dash to connect the hidden GPS receiver and the touch screen. Everything works perfectly.

    Since I didn't have an amp already I tapped in to the AMP relay wire in the radio harness and used a toggle switch on the sensor line so that I could turn off the carPC while driving and turn it back on OR simply leave it off until I need it. In my prior carPC this switch was handy when I was having software related troubles.

If you are interested I will mark it down to $599 with free shipping. For another 29.99 you avoid the uncertainy of losing your money. Korea and Japan are the only safe companies in Asia as they deal with paypal and other safe forms of payment. Wire transfer are 100% risk to the customer.
    Wrong.

    There are two OEM style monitors being sold for Mazda 3 in Taiwan
    One costs cheaper, it's made in China, you can tell if the gears on it breaks often.
    One costs quite a bit more, it's made by Daiwoo in Taiwan.

    By the way, those pictures were NOT taken by The Xenon Store.com. I happened to know the person (actually know him in person not just some guy on internet) who took those pictures. He used to work for Daiwoo.

    I assume that you're selling the Made in China stuff, I personally wouldn't pay that much for it 'cause the gears for it are quite weak. If they break, it won't be motorized anymore.

    Take a step back Devil, you're spouting off without need. Those were the pictures I posted, not Tony. Please don't group what I post with what someone elses posts. Here is my exact quote

    First, the screen is a DV Media M3 Pop-up screen for Mazda 3. It fits 2004 - 2007 (2008 models haven't hit the showroom yet so no word on the 2008). Here is a link to a site that sells them: http://thexenonstore.com/mazda3_screen_info.php

    ..............................................

    I purchased my screen from a local importer here in Tampa (who also happens to sell them on eBay, click here to check out their eBay items). This screen is the definition of plug-and-play in terms of ease of installation. Taking just two screws off the factory dasy and swapping vents this screen was nearly ready to go. What about the wiring? That was even easier. It comes with a harness that takes your factory radio plug and creates a pass through cable so the factory plug powers both the radio and the screen. Once I saw how easy it was to install I skipped the car-audio shop.

    Notice I didn't say these were Tony's pictures nor did I say I purchased them from that site.

    I have taken appart the screen many times and stress tested the screen and I can say that it is NOT a cheap gear. I've seen cheap gears in actions on Lilliput screens and various other uses.

    Being that this is your first post I feel you're here to start a war and I'm not intrested in being part of it. This was my thread talking about my setup, please don't destroy it. If you want to debate the quality please start a new thread in the LCD Monitor section.

    Thanks

    No, not starting a war, just trying to correct a simple error. Daiwoo is a manufacturer and they do make the OEM stype Mazda 3 flip-up monitor. This is just the points I tried to make, not to destroy your thread.

    This was never a question of who makes these units. The DV Media M3 is made in Taiwan under the brand name DV Media manufacturered by Daiwoo Co., LTD

    The name of the screen in question was in my first post. DV Media would be on the box if it had one, and in small print you would see "Manufacturered By Daiwoo Co., LTD". The model number on the box would read DV-M3.

    As featured here:
    http://www.alibaba.com/catalog/11451...or_Mazda3.html


    Why does it even matter who made it as long as it works? I'm sure this is another case of an Asian company take bits a pieces and making a product that works. In some cases products can be cheaply made but this product is truly supurb in construction so if you see your friend tell him I said I'm very happy with the unit.

    Now if only the Daiwoo would partner up and offer a higher cost version that used a Lilliput or Xenarc as the screen istead of the VGA one in it the product would be far better but I'm not complaining, mine works great.

    Touch screen problem

    I have finally gotten most of my system up and running.

    Although I have encountered a problem when trying to get the touch screen to work correctly. the left / right action works correctly, but the up / down is reversed.

    I have removed / reloaded the drivers, turned off all other apps. , removed it from the display to rule out interference from the housing or tape.

    has anyone else had this problem? What's the fix.

    This is probably because the TS kit was put in the wrong way. All you need to do is load the driver CD and run the calibration and it will correct itself.

    When I first used mine it did the same thing, I had to use a mouse to get the calibration window up and ran it then everything worked fine.

    After starting on the problem fresh today, I found the solution. I had installed a serial port to USB emulator so that my Delorme LT-20 GPS antenna would work with iGuidance. after removing the emulator program, removing and re-installing the touch drivers all started working good. re-calibrated the screen re-loaded the emulator, and everything is working.

    If only I had thought of that before I had taken this thing apart. and spent hours.......
