What is a single din radio and a double din radio?
The US standard for a DIN radio is 2" x 7" (although the actual 180 mm width converts to something like 7-3/32" so most people use 7-1/8" to allow for clearance) and the Double DIN sized radio is a 4" x 7". You can watch a dvd on a double din but can not on a single din. Most double din radios are touch screen.
