    Those Sat nav screens again

    I ordered a silver sat nav console from vauxhall on Thursday along with lots of other bits and it will be ready for collection on Tuesday this week.

    All I need now, apart from time, is a screen to put in the sat nav screen hole.

    Any suggestions as to what I can fit in there without doing any modifications to the console itself. Where have you guys bought yours from as I know a few people have done this mod now.


    Really need to get the screen on order in the next couple of days so that I can start planning the install.

    Thanks in advance.

    Or you could hook Sat nav upto it. u can get sat nav heads from 600 quid i think...

    I`ve already started building the car pc, I`m one step ahead.

    Just want to buy a cheap screen to put in the sat nav space.

    re: Those Sat nav screens again

    Got my matt silver centre console yesterday and the hole for the screen will just about take a 5" screen.

    Just wondering what you people have put in there and where you got it from.

    Any help would be great as I`m ready to start striping out the front of the car now.

    Regards

    I bought a 5.6" TFT from ebay. Its a little larger than the hole, but with overscan OFF on the TV out of my laptop it fills the area almost perfectly 5.6" TFT's are a lot easier to come across and most were cheaper than 5" TFT's I could find. Took a little bit of fiddling to get it out of its original casing and mount the screen and electronics, but 2 weeks later its still going and fingers crossed it will stay that way

    eeek... invasion of the car pc's.


    be careful buying cheap screens off ebay - the quality can be naff on some of them. check out the make of screens before you buy.
