    Re: double din?

    Hi Blake, welcome to AOC.

    Anything is possible if you put your mind to it :Smile:

    Is that area a double DIN sized (180 x 100 mm) ?

    It depends on how skilled you are as this would involve lots of hacking around.

    Hi Blake

    Yes you can move the climate controls to the lower dash, The Type-V 6th Generation already has this done to make way for the factory Sat Nav double din:Smile:

    When i had my 6th Generation accord i wanted a permanent SatNav so i got a single one where the large screen automatically slides out and flips up. It can play dvds also along with cds and radio. Was great quality and great to watch movies when having to wait about. The face comes off for security also. Worth considering going down that route? I've still got it in storage if you want me to find out the make.

    I know its the worst make ever, however I had a Ripspeed :Smile:Blushing: Can't believe I've just admitted that) DV720 and for what it cost me (£50) it was pretty good, DVD player, 7 inch flip out screen and pretty good sound quality

    You can pick one up cheap as chips nowadays, just make sure the ribbon is ok and that it plays both DVDs and cd's ok
