I've got a Race Technology DASH2 from the UK. Nothing too fancy and I haven't actually installed it yet, but talks to my autronic and came at under $900AUD shipped. I'll be making my own comms lead though, they wanted 150 quid for that, bullshit.

Be Very Very careful when installing this Dash, as the recessed threads on the back are shallow, with the material at the bottom of the holes very thin.  It is quite easy to bottom out the bolts being used, and punching the bottom of the holes into the underlying circuit board.  When this happens, the screen tends to fail, and the only fix is replacement.

I used to sell these products, I had a number of them come back for that reason.  I used to install short studs on the ones that I sold to resolve this issue.

Thanks for the tip.
I haven't look at mounting solutions yet so will keep this in mind.
