Yea I guess so. To each their own, but putting a 55inch TV in a studio apartment is quite rediculous.
I’m planning to do something similar, but ordered an 8.8” ultra wide screen system (that shouldn’t really block the HVAC vents or controls). I decided that navigating with my phone on my lap wasn’t really safe and I detest phone mounts. Hopefully it will look like a factory install and at a minimum, it will be safer having CarPlay right at my fingertips.

It is frustrating though because nowadays it’s hard to find a single din CarPlay compatible systems without comically oversized screens (look at Crutchfield lol).

I just learned about this one few seconds ago. I’m quite intrigued....

Haha! I ordered this:

The height and width are almost a perfect fit for the space too. I ordered it 2 weeks ago and am hoping it arrives next week.

I’d like to see that installed. If it fits the area without covering up the hvac and vents this may look great
Once it arrives I will create an install thread to help others! Unfortunately it’s taking forever to arrive...
