  • Lcd Brightness!

    Hi Guys!

    looking to install a lilliput 7" touchscreen in my montero but Ive noticed that all monitors have buttons either at the bottom or side of screen.

    Here is the question: Is there a way of controlling the brightness after the monitor goes in to the dashboard and they are no longer within reach? Is there a way via XP which is the OS Im planning to use? Can it be linked to the vehicle auto dimming when night comes and lighs are on?

    Thanks in advace for the help...

    use a program called Gamma Control. it has a part that auto dims depending on the time of day, sunrise, sunset and the like

      RR front end does it itself, it can also set when it does it via GPS so it changes depending where you are in the world. It isn't bang on but it isn't bad.

            RR = Road runner have a look over in the front ends section of the forum.

            @ All things end: Why would you use gamma control on its own when roadrunner has it built in?

                  Don't know if this would help but maybe you could put GC in the startup folder. So everytime it bootup, it will load GC.
