That's just our thing.
I must not have expresses myself clearly. I fully agree with everything you just said, and I'm very grateful for your sharing your successful experience with me.
My situation is that I have only three weeks left before we are on the road, with not a single hour to spare for the modifications. Talking to the tech was not an encouraging experience, so hiring it out isn't very promising. In short the upgrade is not going to happen this season, so I had to (not wanted to) find an alternative.
We wanted the tablet anyway for DW. I use the iPhone for all my needs, but she can't read the small screen and that really limits her abilities as a navigator. So instead of a grand for the tablet, and a grand for the upgrade we'll make do with the tablet and will upgrade next season when I can do it right.
I will certainly follow your example when I do it. In a 1999 coach I'm not looking to do expensive cabinet work, and your installation looks great from the pictures. Also being able to angle the screen toward the sofa or recliner is much more desirable than the rigid position of the factory original. Thanks for the advice and pics. They are already saved for next season.
