Installed a Rear screen in the armrest as i thougth it looked abit plain.

 

Looks good connected to the DVD player, so can play ps2 and dvd with the screen. It also displays what song is playing. Il take a pic soon so you can see, it look nice.

looks different

Works great. It's not touchscreen would have been good if it was. Names songs, play dvds , and play ps2. The remote is in the tray below so people in the back can change tracks.

Looks good, I personally couldnt see me trying to play PS2 on it as its too small, but as far as mods go, its looking good!

 

So how do you hook the PS2 into it? have you got a PS2 sitting wired up?

nazsky786
The front is a screen to but u can detach it. So 8in screen front and a 5in screen back. The ps2 is wired up in the glove. Only put a ps2 in because get bored waiting for people to come out.

i like that Naz! how does the front screen detach? never seen a head unit with a detachable 8" screen!

nazsky786
It's a tab version. You can take the Steen off and it turns into a android tablet. You can go on internet etc. Like a phone but you carnt call. I've got WiFi in the car ,which I use to go on internet from it. You normally get a 7 in thought it was to small so mod it to be 8.

It's a erisin es777a but my new unit is the es815something with captive.

 +1!

 

I would like to know this too. you sound like a techie guy so i might pick your brains...

what powers it/keeps it powered?

have you tried the Torque app on it?

 

what did it cost you Naz?

If its the use of a phone as a wifi hotspot thats pretty impressive, otherwise some people use the likes of MiFi powered by USB so when the car starts, the WiFi starts...

I often use my tablet in my car (not while driving obviously!) and would love WiFi. Other than tethering to my phone, the only options like mifi were a monthly contract, which I'm not prepared for as I won't use it enough to justify it. What do you use Naz?
nazsky786
I use giffgaff with a mifi, connected into the cig lighter to power it. But most time it's off. I only top it up 7.50 per month but I only top up when I need it. Thinking of putting a Xbox 360 in so play games online. But only prob is Xbox ruin disc when moved and a ps3 drains power so I have to stick with ps2. But I also have a bluetooth one connected to the CD player so I get all the info about the car. Latest prob with my car is o2 sensor bank 1 sensor 1 and that was because machanic messed around with it.
nazsky786
I mean Bluetooth obd.

Naz, do me a favour, see if you use the Torque app on it as i'm very interested in getting one if you can.

nazsky786
Il try it as soon as I get home.

Naz, any news mate?
