I am once again offering my Nomad Screen and Battery Mod Service.

Here is the thread for the Mod's :

I can do this mod for $65 shipped to your door. You would be responsible for shipping the Nomad to me. For $65 I will do the mod and also install a new screen cover. The 3.5" screens I use fill the space entirely, but they do say AV1 briefly when first starting up.


I can also do the Battery mod for $60 shipped to your door. I won't need your Nomad for that mod. This includes 2500mAh batteries and a charger in the Nomad battery pak. The Nomad will last over 9 hours with the new screen and battery mod. Send me your Nomad battery pak for a $5 discount.

PM me for details or questions.

What's the approximate maximum size of LCD and driver board that would fit inside the Nomad?

I'm trying to find my own LCD/driver board on "Chinese eBay" (taobao) to do this mod myself.

I've found that they sell the LCD/driver board for these rearview monitors without the casing; I could get one for under $20 Canadian plus shipping and if it doesn't work as well as I hope, I could just re-purpose it.

There's this one, for example, that has a 75 by 60 by 8 mm screen and a 76.9 by 63.9 by 3.3 mm driver board. Of course, I wouldn't mind chipping away at the board a bit or moving things around if possible. (Those connectors have gotta go and I can move those capacitors.)

And there's another couple, a bit more expensive:

And about the battery, what kind of cells do you normally use?

Does the resolution of the replacement LCD really matter?

Thank you.
Finally: the surface!
