I've never seen a G series screen in a F10. Are you confusing it with this retrofit?

There's several threads on retrofitting a G-series touch display along with NBT Evo headunit on the F10 chassis.

I've been considering it myself since I tried the Android HU route from the link you posted and didn't like how it worked, quite clunky with the integration into the OEM system.

So my concern is that not all G series screens are the same dimensions. G30 and G01 have been used/retrofitted successfully. My question is specifically about the G11/G12 7 series screen. I was just looking to see if someone indeed had done this and had tips...since its not a straightforward swap (bracket and overall dimensions are different)

Yes, most likely as the bracket/mounting holes are in a different location.

If you can DIY it, please let me know how you did it. I'm interested in doing it too.

I bought NBT Evo retofit a few years ago and seller claims it's G11 screen.

It looks pretty simple, you would just take off the F10 screen, remove screen but keep housing. Then remove back of G11 screen and attach the front on top of F10 screen bezel.

Looks pretty stock, only downside to this setup is pressing buttons at the bottom of the screen is slightly awkward but you get used to it.
