I have no experience with the motorized screens, so this may not be a real concern at all. But I get the feeling these units are designed for road use rather than trail use. But if you have no room for a biggie monitor with touchscreen ability, the motorized screens may be your only choice.

As an alternative to the $3,000 Alpine system you linked to, here's a motorized screen unit from Pioneer with MSRP of $1,800:

This unit has all of the gizmo expandability features.
