Does anyone know what navi system or monitor coordinates well with this frame set? I'm talking about the Monitor Frame set at http://www.koreanautoimports.com/store/product_info.php?cPath=30_310_312&products_id=3468
First of all.....this was MUCH cheaper at SharkRacing (I'm still waiting for mine)
Watch THIS thread for anything "I" find out about this enclosure.....but I'm not gonna be doing a GPS system in mine. I'll be custom mounting a 7" (or whatever I can get in there) VGA touchscreen.
I know this is MUCH more a project than your inquiry, but to date, I seem to be the only other one talking about this enclosure.
They show actual opening measurements on SharkRacing of:
157mm (15.7cm) wide
96mm (9.6cm) tall
When this thing shows up, you'll see me at least fitting this thing to the dash at first (or I'll see you do YOURS first)...I won't be looking for a monitor until I see this thing up close. I want to get as big an LCD touchscreen in there as I can without doing something ridiculous to the housing.
I will go as far as carefully cutting out the opening if it means I can get the next "standard size" LCD panel in there. I'll also likely be painting SOME part of it to match the molten, currently just my caliper paint comes pretty close...but it'll match my custom painted KIWI either way. I'm EXTREMELY likely to do something about the cheesy looking front grill if that part actually shows.
I'm still not quite sure how this thing mounts until I see it. We will very likely lose the (useless to me) sunglass storage, but it might go as far as to require REMOVING that pocket from behind the trim as well (just a few phillips screws). I saw some pics of a Soul that actually had a "dish" in place of the center speaker, so now I'm REALLY curious how this mounts.
Cool...just went to the KAI link. Nicer pics...and one "in situ" pic. I can see ONE thing I will have to pay attention to when looking for my VGA touchscreen. This enclosure is a "standard ratio" monitor, so 7" is gonna be different than the usual "7 inch widescreen" you see when looking at little VGA monitors. I'll have to pay closer attention to WxH measurements to keep me from "buying a bunch of monitors". The term "seven inch gps" sorta has me wondering....since most gps I see are "chunkier" than an LCD monitor, so I may end up with alot more or less flexibility with size. There MAY even be enough space to put some other gear behind the monitor within that enclosure (USB hubs, different card reader,etc)
Well, it would depend what you searched for, I go to the Korean tuning sites all the time. It is a shame companies that import parts from Korea, like Shark Racing and such, never put up ALL that is available. The scene would be so much more fun here.Just by doing a google search. Don't know anything about these guys or their reputation. Can anyone else read/speak Korean?
