I'm more in favor to the idea of replacing the factory flippy screen with something like the AVIN unit. It would be nice to have a fixed touch screen and no moving parts (lack of flippy action means less things break). I'm not sure how the screen will affect visibility though.

I have previously considered doing a flippy screen delete, and then installing something like the Pioneer AVH-3400NEX.
Problem with touch screen is that it’s not very accessible in the factory location. Well at least with my build I know I wouldn’t be able to reach once my seatbelts on.

I really like the way you guys are thinking. I also have a factory nav system.
The screen works fine, but the nav really isnt all that useful, and I need the screen for radio tuning, mode selection, etc.

Id LOVE to find a high-res replacement that keeps the essential non-nav functions, and adds iPhone mirroring for nav and other functionality.

Consider me IN if we come across a potential solution that requires a group buy to get the designer/manufacturer to custom-make the parts, wiring harnesses, trim pieces, etc.

Also subscribed - I've been thinking about trying to track down a non-nav dash and head unit and converting to nav-less - but if there was a way to do a quality retrofit to the current flip up, I'd be down.

Same here, would love to swap out the factory screen. Looking at doing the same on my S4 and it has a much more modern and useful setup than the M does.

For the S4 you should look at RSNAV units.
