slide out 7" nav screen for Defender 110

Does anyone know the actual angle of the dash mounted radio (head unit) in the early 110's ? I'm looking to install a Nav unit with a pop out 7" screen that supports Satellite radio and a back up camera, (like these)

http://www.crutchfield.com/p_020NZ50...7cFFSingle-DIN

http://www.crutchfield.com/p_700KV51...7cFFSingle-DIN

but the early Defender dash mounted radios stock mount is at an angle, and I want to make sure what ever unit I buy the pop out screen can be adjusted to the proper angle , usually they have a 4 or 5 adjustment positions(and it does not face the headliner) . I would have like to put a simple double din unit but so far I cant find anyone that makes a dash modification that holds a full size double din head unit for the early 110's

i shopped around for these a while back and was really disappointed in the GPS performance and speed of calculation. My 150 garmin was faster and more accurate than the kenwood i was looking at

So i ended up putting in a astandard stereo and buying my wife a nicer garmin for 1/2 the coin

The end goal for the head unit is really a back up camera and although we have several portable Garmin GPS units none take a back camera input , and I'd like to have one screen in the dash instead of 2 or 3 units all over the place (there are also way too many car brake-in even here in VT of kids Trying to support their drug habits to keep nice units on top of dash or windshield mounted )

understood, The kenwood rear camera i saw worked well. The user interface was too complex for the limited HP they had in the unit, so the navi and OSD were laggy. kinda a bummer

Nuvi 5000, https://buy.garmin.com/shop/shop.do?pID=11547. Discontinued, but you probably still find them. Lovely large high res screen, backup camera input, auto dimming.

Or a newer option is the Nuvi 1490TV, https://buy.garmin.com/shop/shop.do?pID=68763 Lower res screen, but a little more modern.

Referrence my set-up. 90 not 110 but identical dash.

I have an Eclpise AVN7000. It's been discontinued but it has all the goodies that the newer units have so I'm still very happy with it.

My dash mount has it sitting at 35 degree down angle of elevation. The installation guide says not to exceed 30 degree or you might experience skipping, but I never have. I've had movies going for my passengers while driving and the maps are all on the built in hard drive. This <35 degree parameter would most likely be somewhat universal for optimal operation.

The screen tilt option would be the most important factor when deciding between two comparable head units. Mine has 2 slide out positions and 7 tilt angles. The more the merrier. Mine seemed to motor out and up to the first tilt angle and stop. I could have adjusted it theoretically at that point but I was nearly out of room so I left it at this position which is about 77 degrees. This angle is set as primary in the memory, but it could be adjust further back on the fly if I had more room. I can't tip it any more forward however since I am at the first functioning tilt angle. I guess I got lucky.

All in all, I think the number you're looking for is 77 degrees minimum tilt angle (which would be your maximum relative to the head unit before it hits the crash pad) from a stock dash mount kit that holds the head unit at a 35 degree down angle.

Do you seriously put on headsets when you drive your 90?

Here is a picture of the double din style installed. The only problem I have noticed is that it is a little low and the shifter, in fifth, is in the way a little. The Built in Garmin GPS is fantastic as well as the Sirius.

"Do you seriously put on headsets when you drive your 90? " - mgreenspan


I only wear the headsets when I'm blazing down the road under the surrey, or less, and I have someone else with me that actually wants to talk. Rediculous, I know, the whole wanting to talk thing! Sheesh. Ha! No, really. They are actually just for that. Intercom. They work quite well, too. They noise cancel and all. I rewired them for an extra set of speakers inside the cups so that now we can listen to music without the Vox cutting it out. Its nice to just talk parallel to the music, no yelling required. They make cell phone calls easy too!

Any extra brackets or anything needed to support the unit?
