Double DIN or flip out?

I'm thinkin of spending a few bucks (nothing major), to get an in-dash DVD but don't know which one would be better, double din or flip out? Any thoughts on which one is better?

Thank you....

I like the flip out, but all that i have seen are more expensive. You also have to consider the insane amount of moving parts in such a small space. That translates to the unit not lasting very long, much like a in dash multi-disc head unit.

Thanks Rentalguy, I orderd a Double Din this morning here's the link JVC Double DIN
I would rather not do any cutting but I don't like the idea either of the flip out against the lip of the dash pad and you make a good point about all the moving parts too - too many things to go wrong.

Now, does anyone know how to connect up the wires so I can view videos while in drive? I think I have an idea but just want to be sure.

Well, I don't know about that, but do you really need to watch videos as you drive down the road?

I DO like the in dash better though since I've been looking at one myself. What did you pay for yours?

There is a wire that you have to ground. when you see the wiring harness and see a wire that says parking something or other, ground that one. It voids the warranty just so you know.

Nice! Be careful watching those "movies" while going down the road! It'll be hard to pay attention with one hand on the wheel, eyes planted on the screen, and the other hand... well, I hate to imagine where THAT'LL be!

Suuuuuuure you will.

You know, you'll go blind if you keep doing that... not to mention the hairy palms!
