      Well It's been 90-95 Degrees here in PA. I've had my 6.4" TFT working great even during the hottest time of day. For more info on my display, visit my website.

          i live in vermont, it's been ~90 degress F the past week here (10 times worse in my car). My car sits in a parking lot that has the sun coming right in my front window for a large portion of they day. when i go out to my car after work the steering wheel is too hot to even touch. The has still worked find though (its a 5.6" TFT). BTW, it's located right on top of my dash in the sun

            I'm in Chicago's suburbs and it gets hot! I don't know about a TFT, but my 40x4 is alright. One time it was blue when I got back to my car it was so hot! So I just detatched it and brought it inside and put it next to the air conditioning vent. I also dropped it on cement and it works fine still!
