    Thanks for the kind words on the install. I knew at the time I ordered, that it was an iffy proposition ordering from gooddeals18. The fact that I needed to resolder the lamp wires shows that quality is marginal. It is a very obvious hack of a hack of a hack. (even the lamp driver board has wires soldered on, because they didn't have a cord with the correct plug...) However, it is a samsung screen, and without the touchscreen, it looks fantastic. Bright daylight, no worries, ever. It's never faded. I really mean never. Part is the screen, part is the install location and the shadow bezel.

    Relocating the hvac was the key to a big screen. I'm convinced that the screen makes/breaks this type of project.

    I do feel for you on just trying to cram in a 7" screen. I have a friend with an 04 taurus that wants as much as he can get... Any thoughts are appreciated. All I can see is a metra single din dash kit with a flip out screen. Ford just made it impossible to do anything cool in a taurus. (got to keep up their image, now don't they)

    made a change on FM. Decided against the adstech. Just couldn't pass up going HDradio even though it's slightly more expensive.

    I got a $50 HDZ300 from ebay and a cable from mitch on order.

    also playing with digitalfx3.0 skin...

    Good idea, HD radio is much more reliabe, its also the best FM solution even if you do not have HD radio in your area.

    Got my hdradio today, so I thought I'd snap a couple pictures while it was all torn apart. The moving of the HVAC controls was what made this possible, so here's what it looks like from the back side... Also you can see how the lcd 'frame' allows plenty of room to mount things like the tuner, etc...

    your T5720

    jbell, curious how were you able to hack the default XPE image provided by HP. I attempted to use nlite on my 5720 with no luck. I've also tried to modify the T5720 image provided by HP and its so locked down that i can't do a darn thing.

    just digging this thread up from a couple years ago... I've lived with this basically unchanged in that time.

    Now I think it's time to try to voice interface...
