    Lilliput Glare

    Has anyone used their Lilliput with out the touchscreen? I was thinking that it might have a better picture with out the milky touchscreen that is on there. Also might help to cut down the glare. What I am thinking of doing is just bag the Touch screen part and use a Touchpad. I just want to know if anyone is using theres with out the touchpad and if the glare is better. Or will I get to be the Guinea pig for this idea?

    You can do a search of course. I recall that this was discussed at length several months ago, and I think that removing the TS did reduce the glare for those that did so, but the drawback is obvious. Others have tried AR films or screen protectors, but I do not recall anything that insipred me. The best thing that you can do IMHO is get a dark tint on the windows and try and cover the screen from glare as much as possible. A light interior is a drawback since it will reflect on the screen as well.

    I have searched to some extent and have read about the extra film people tried nothing seemed to my liking either. I have had my touchscreen off and noticed it was brighter and crisper picture wise but was curious about glare on the screen if that was reduced. I am going to get the windows tinted as well on my truck.

    Damn. That is big lol! I was thinking it was the size of a notebook touchpad. Is it still going to fit?

    Ok I finally did it. The glare is much much better without the touch screen. When I took the screen off I was standing under a light in my house. Immediatly you could tell the touchscreen was putting off way more glare than the LCD, it was like a mirror standing under the light. I reinstalled the LCD with the usb touchpad and can now see perfectly clear in daylight, as where I could see almost nothing before. I am still hunting for a better touchscreen, I do miss being able to reach over and just tap the screen (well at night when I could see it!). Haveing very little use with a laptop before and their touchpads this will just take some time to get use to using.

    I still think this is a personal opinion on which is better with touch screen or touch pad. I personally will put a vote in for the touchpad way of life. Until they can find a way to get the glare down on that touchscreen.
