  • Would this be likely to wash out?

    I'd been planning this for a while, but I hadn't really factored in the sun into my Lilliput plans. Basically I'd like to know if anybody has mounted a screen in a similar position before, and if so, if it washed out the image pretty bad during the daytime (without direct sunlight). I haven't dealt with in car screens before, so I haven't had much experience with fighting the sun on this stuff.

    Here's a couple pictures with the location I was thinking of using.

    Yeah it would wash out like a *****. My screen was placed from where the top of the box (inside the red circle) is to the bottom of your dash and I still could barely see it during the day. Sorry.

          xenarcs may be slightly better, but still suffers during the day.... I wouldn't think it's so much better that an upgrade is worthwhile...maybe for you that little extra is worth it though

          ..... if you had no screen already I could see choosing the xenarc over the lilli though..........
