    Could you clarify as to what exact differences you noticed with the new capacitative overlay and how much better was the visibility? Im assuming you wont get that glaze affect when sunlight is hitting the screen hard at a certain angle. Does it render having a transreflective screen practically uneccesary?

    I wonder if anyone sells a cheap 7" capacitative overlay such that you could just rip out the old resistive overlay and put on the new one.

    I'm really considering buying this screen. The only thing i'm worried about is spending an extra $100 and the accuracy and readability be worse than the resistive screen. I wish someone would buy this and give a review!! Anyone want to chip in $5 for a review?

    i went ahead and bought just the touch panel. i didnt get it from the guy on ebay but it is the same panel that hes selling. i was lucky and a member here had one available. it probally wont be here for a week or so and will take me a bit to get it in but ill let you guys know how it works out.

    does anyone know what the pin out for the usb is on the lillput cable?.

    Awesome! I will be holding off a screen purchase until i hear a review from you! Is there any place online to buy the touch panel? searching leads me nowhere.

    Well the brightness is better, the characters now look a lot sharper (it was is if everything was slightly blurry with the resistive panel) and the yellowing of the whites is completely gone, in other words the color accuracy just went up. The crazy difference (the main reason why we all are considering capacitive) is the sensitivity... I use Streetdeck for the gestures and everything is a lot more natural. sliding the finger over the glass versus "plasticy" surface is way more natural, no need to actually press on the screen, but rather graze it.


    Transflective would be a nice touch but i don't think it's that much of a necessity, i'd rather go for an optical bonding, where the space between the overlay and the LCD is filled with a transparent component, suppressing 2 levels of reflection, take a look at this:




    ...or this

    Anyone interested in a group buy? If we can get maybe 5-10 ppl, maybe we can negotiate a discount.

    I'm game, I think i'm sold on capacitive as long as not having it bonded will make glare worse than a resistive. My dash is already at a bad angle for glare.

    ...?

    bonded increases visibility and decreases the glare dude... resistive has that glazing cover that is horrible in the sunlight, capacitive is pretty much a glass, and having it bonded lowers two levels of reflection allowing more light to be coming from the LCD than bounced back from the outer environment
