Very nice. Where can we get one. Is it possible to place an order for this.

There is a how to on here that shows step by step how to do it with actuators. all in all I thikn cost runs about 150 or so unless you got a hook up. The pain is the fact that yo uare chopping shit up s oyou don't want to screw up. and it'd be a good idea to do it to a spare map pocket incase you do screw up.

i dont know if that was an actuator. looks more like a servo motor. servo motor would be the way to go.

A long time ago when I was first looking/starting this project I came across this installation. It's the same idea just a little different. I didn't use the servo and went with a actuator, but I'll share the wealth to all.

Parts needed:
Astro Flight Servo tester: http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti00...LXVK79&P=ML

Futaba S3801 Servo Heavy Duty Arm Type Sail Control
http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LXH294

Servo controller board

How-To can be found here: http://www.dellabarba.com/ibug/Install/ser...nstallation.htm
Not hard to make it work for a Mazda6 ;) Since the project appears dead, this was pretty much what Dave and Lapis were doing, similar parts if not the same.

Great pics. I really think you should show off your hard work.

Can you make a short shopping list of the parts you used, and where you bought them. If I send you $40USD can you build/purchase the parts for me? Namely the mounting bracket and the white craddle?

For example what is that white block, and where did you get it? How does the lid stay closed? What kind of display did you use (make, dimensions etc.)? What kind of motor did you use, how many volts? Are you use a Servo controller? Did you have to write any driver software. What kind of power source are you using, are you using a power inverter etc.

Checkout:

Can you provide a short write-up/summary/description of what you did:

I know it will be a little time consuming, however, it would be very helpful to all. If you like myself or a group of can even pitch in to get you something for your troubles.

Nice, but I can't make a whole lot of it.

Alan from what I can see these are my assumptions:

Hardware:
  • 1 map pocket
  • 1 front plate from actual display
  • 1 white craddle for the display to rest upon
  • 1 bracket used to swivel the display open and closed
  • 1 servo motor
  • 1 controller switch
Procedure:
Cut a hole into the base of the map pocket to accomodate the swivel bracket.
Mount the swivel bracket onto the map pocket via the 3 holes on either side.
Assemble the craddle display assembly as seen in the diagram.
Fasten the craddle display assembly to the swivel bracket.
Motor placement (see assumptions below)

Assumptions:
I assume that the spring loading mechanism of the map pocket lid has been disabled, and the force of the screen pushing upwards pops the lid open. To keep it closed, I suppose you can use magnets (similar to a medicine chest).

Given the limited amount of space, I can only assume that the motor has been mounted inside the white craddle. If you look closely, you will notice little compartments within the craddle. I assume that the shaft from the motor sticks out on one side, and it is used to connect the craddle/display assembly to the swivel bracket.

At first glance, I admit the picture are not that intuitive, however, with a little effort, you can piece things together. However, I do agree some additional information would certainly be helpful (see my post below).

The key to this project is that white cradle and the black bracket, without a link to buy those or at least some detailed plans/pictures, this isn't really any help. The first post says "price 20usd" if anyone can read japanese and figure out how to buy those two parts, that's what we need, I will put up some cash to buy a block of these and offer them on an English website if someone can get me too the "buy now" button on that page.

hi, I'M A CHINESE,NOT JAPANESE!

This project is DIY,NO LINK, SORRY!

This LCD is LILLIPUT 7"(619,with touch screen,WEB:http://www.gdsun.com/eng/content_products.asp?ID=163)

probably a dumb question but here goes

why not use the MazdaSpeed 6 parts and build one ? Unless it is not motorized or the parts are not compatible with our reg. 6 , maybe parts are too expensive ?
anybody yet contemplate this ?

Very expensive
