  • T-View T700VGA in direct sun light action - second thought - now recommended

    reference to my project here i was not please with the brightness of this vga monitor because i thought that it would not be possible to view it in direct sunlight.

    however, the sun came out today, and i had a chance to play with it in direct sunlight. i thought glare or viewing in sunlight would be a big problem or impossible, however, the screen was design to be used outdoor, so it doesnt reflect as much light. it looks pretty good in sunlight actually, and it look better, and brighter than my laptop display, but indoor, my laptop is still brighter.


    here is a pic where the sun hit the screen at about 60 degree angle. it actually look pretty good.

            i think thats the route im going to go. the 700vga and in-dash housing. I assume I could put a TSK on anytime in the future or would I have to take it apart again?

              Yourbigfun,

              Do you have a touchscreen overlay on your screen? Also, how does it look from the driver's viewing angle?

                it looks okay from the driver angle. it doesnt look great, and it doesnt look bad. with the limited choices out there, this will have to do for the momment. this time last year, we didnt really have any choices at all, so i think this time next year, there should be many small vga out, and we will have many choices. the tview do not come with touch.
