  • LCD "Night" Skin... IDEA

    Hi there folks,
    Just a quick idea....
    I saw it on a VDO GPS system.
    There is a wire that connects to the headlamp illumination.
    When you switch the headlamps on the screen switches from a bright colourscheme which is good for daytime viewing to a darker one for night which is easier on the eye.
    the only thing is, how would one input this signal to the Carputer.
    I hope this is useful to someone.
    Thanks,
    Gavin

    to incorporate this you could use a PIC or build a circuit to plug into the serial or parallel port. It shouldn't be too hard to do. This sounds like a great idea, any possibility of doing this Carcomp?
    Never let the truth get in the way of a good story

      How about just having a set time when it switches to the night skin? Much simpler.

          I had thought about a simular idea ie raido muting when there is a phone call or external device ( ie my traffic gizzmo ) which is why I knew about them. There must be other units like these out there ?
