    Default Help. Which LCD and setup for City 2012 (waleed80)

    hi there...aoa...so finally last week i installed fog lights in my city , effectively saying bye bye to the electric warranty, but then i thought the warranty period covers two years, and i cant drive the car without internal satisfaction (cause i loved fog lights on City)....anyways, now as warranty is no more an issue, i intend installing the LCD screen in my car. soul purpose is for kids to watch cartoons and stuff when they are riding and also i might be installing reverse camera. i have absolutely no idea about these electronic products, so please guide me which setup/quality/brand to go for.

    i know these things heavily depend upon the budget available, but as i said above i have no idea, i am for now looking for all the options, so please tell me the options i have. i dont want to go for too high or too pathetic a stuff it shud just be a reliable stuff with decent video and audio quality, supporting multiple audio and video interfaces

    Regards

    Since you are not looking for an SQ system, or amazing quality, just grab the OEM Rockmars system available in the market (other chinese variants also available). The sound quality is not excellent, but it will fit your budget and looks good inside the car. It also has a TV, reverse camera options as well as other features (check out the market and get the best price).

    Since it has an OEM fascia, it looks good. A friend just got one in his 2013 city. SHould cost around 14-15k.

    means sound quality( high quality audio stuff) i know ur not that big of an audio fan
    rockmars option is actually pretty decent for u,it does has active gps as well n can support rear view cam,on the other hands how about we look for a used pionner dvd in the same price range or even a lil more,benefits will be alot better quality over all.
    yes in some players u can connect your cell phone via bluetooth

    basic pioneer dvd.
    people used to get 6 cd changers n attach video cards bla bla,thats old school now,no need of such hastle.
    easiest solution is a used dvd or a basic model but brand new one.

    agreed. did market survey and found out the same that branded touch screen with bluetooth and this and that costs 40k-ish and above. to get the lower stuff, like rockmars etc, its of no use (everyone said that). hence, plan cancelled. thanks for the help guys
