I'm in the market to install a 7 inch TV screen in my car, and I was wondering if anyone else has done this yet. As of now I'm interested in a motorized in-dash screen, but I dont want to remove my stock stereo system. I also dont wanna buy a flip-down screen because then I'd have to be in the backseat to see it. Any advice?

I've owned my WRX for about a month and the CD player has already crapped out. :( :mad: !!!!

So, I'm looking for a replacement head unit/tuner. I'm also interested in mobile video.... does anyone know of a good LCD/TFT video screen/head unit/tuner/toaster oven that fits in the OEM tuner slot?

Hey, I'm not sure if you're after another stock unit or aftermarket, but if you want stock, I saw a couple on Ebay.

Actually, the dealership is replacing it, free of charge (as they should). But, I don't want this to happen again, and would like to take advantage of this opportunity/excuse to upgrade to something better sounding/cooler looking. I'm sure everyone peepin this site can understand. :rolleyes:

I know I'm starting to sound like a broken record, but if you want an aftermarket CD player for a low low price then PM TeamShiftPoint. William will hook you up. Tell him that I (Fahd) refered you.

I would take the replacement installed. Uninstall it. Reinstall the deck of your choice. Sell the new replacement on Ebay for more mod money!:D

Yeah, that's a pretty cool head unit but it doesn't feature a touch-screen, and, most importantly, I've been trying to find a head unit that fits in the WRX double-din space, features a TFT monitor (not motorized flip-up) and also has the dvd/cd/mp3 player built in. Also... while we're at it, Navigation would be nice. :p

I'm dreaming, right? Nothing like that exists, correct? :rolleyes:

Eclipse is your best bet

I have been working with high end car audio for some time now and have used products and had experience with basically everything else out there. If you have the money I would recommend an Eclipse product hands down. Thier screens are of the highest quality and have the best picture. The reason for this is Eclipse's parent companie is Fujitsu TEN one of the worlds largest electronics corps. Fujitsu is responsible for the creation of the Toshiba high quality laptop and other HD Flat screens which most of us have seen before. Not only are the Screens and Picture quality unmatched the overall quality of the units themselves are unmatched. The attention to detial on these units just scream "I am the cream of the crop". Eclipse has a large product line up when it comes to mobile video. They have a double DIN Wide TFT CD/casset unit called the 7301(last years model it think has changed). They also have the best single DIN fold out units on the market. The new Eclipse fold outs are even better than last years and one of the models feature a DVD player in single DIN.
There are so many options to chose from depending on what you are looking to do. One of the best features of any Eclipse unit is the ESN security system. If you are not fimiliar with it I invite you to check it out ,theres nothing else like it by any other companie to protect your investment.
It may seem like I work for Eclipse but I don't. I do sell them and use them. I have seen them all but nothing has impressed me more than an Eclipses units I strongly recommend you check them out. Visit the Web site for more info at
www.eclipse-web.com and happy hunting :)

in 13 months on this board, that's the first head unit i've heard to crap out. i would at least get the warranty to replace it, then try to ebay sell it. it should go fast, as 2din 6 disc indash changers are hard to come by. then you can atleast subsidize somem of the cost of your new unit.

$0.02

actually eclipse is the way to go, their new head unit (the Touchscreen) runs at like 8 oms where normal stereos run at like 4. This thing will give you rediculously clear sound if you dont mind spending alot of money i wish i had waited to get mine, cuz i deffenently would have boughten this one

There is a new piece out by The Right Connection that is a double din 6.5" screen with built in dvd, tv tuner, radion tuner, plays mp3 cdr etc. built in power. It looks pretty nice but would like to see one in person before saying. Has video input for a rear cam or game system. So that may be an option for you as well.
