is it possible or does anyone have any experience installing aftermarket touch screen headunits, i would assume that you cant take out the 6 cd stacker and i gather you could install said head unit into the double din space at the bottom (in front gear shifter) is it a pain in the a** or nha?

I have put an Alpine double din with 7 inch screen where the cash box was in a BA. II have photos somewhere.. I'll try to dig one up if you wish.

In theory, you could replace the entire ICC with a 14 inch touchscreen and a mini PC like a resperry Pi or even possibly an arduino.

As long as it asks and answers the same questions on the bus that the original did.. it should work fine.

It's on my fairly long todo list. :-)
