    Fiat Ducato early 2006 clipboard on dash model
    this dash only has a single DIN radio mount.
    I would like a single din radio with pop up touch screen
    On first inspection it would appear this can't be done.

    1. A pop up flip out screen that deploys out then up will foul the clipboard over hang and display will still be pointing down.

    2. A screen that deploys out and then down will fail also as it appears this will foul the dash and remain point up
    neither option it seem will give the driver a normal view of the screen

    Has anyone come up with a solution to this or found a media player that is capable of over coming this problem.

    Has any one perhaps found a dash converter panel that will allow a standard double din unit to be fitted?

    Will the tablet holder move out of the way when up? If so, short term solution...(y) If not, back to the drawing board...:cautious:

    I had a single DIN Alpine with a slide out, pop up touch screen that did not foul the dashboard, and had some adjustment for the angle when in use. I still have it in the shed, complete with cabling and the remote central processor box, which was originally mounted under the driver's seat. It was installed in a [correction:] 2008 Fiat Ducato and I don't know whether the dash is different to a 2006 model.

    Unfortunately it is, the problem is perhaps better described as the single DIN Radio is set back into the dash by 2" so a standard flip out is out the question
    and i was hoping some one had found a fix I could re model the Dash but was hoping not to

    i have a flip screen in a fiat ducato 2005 single Din touch screen you mount the radio out with the brackets supplied and halfords does a extention cover so it misses the clip board and looks finished
