You may luck out and get a great product right away or get stuck getting put off for months until receiving the product if you actually do eventually get it. From the examples given He won't get $1 from me even if his product is the best thing since sliced bread. Just make sure you read the Android thread before you decide to send him any money. Feel free to ignore any of the messages I posted in the thread. The information given speaks on its own. Beyond this I won't comment any more on the Mimics stuff.

    As to the video it was my understanding that the iphones out of the box will only display the video externally if you are displaying a video. The screen its self will not display. Or it was the other way around I don't recall. I don't have an iOS device but there was discussion that the HDMI output isn't active on an iOS device all of the time like they are on an android.

    Wow that's a lot! Not to worried it that I already have the mimic's. kind ironic this thread is about a LCD touch screen that was promised and not delivered on and it wasn't turned in to a bunch of mindless crap. Dave has been more than excellent to work with. This thread has as it should stayed on track! -please let's keep it that way!

    I guess you missed the part about Display out ( only on cyida - JB) Two diffent worlds

    My question is more to do with the 10" and how you get the audio (I did not see a audio out like the 7") in adition the instruction on the 10" are more geared to installing this with a raspberry. I was looking for some feedback from someone IOS/ JB savy running the Dispay Out app and how it would display on this this unit.

    Good luck with the Mimic and I will leave it at that...

    And as far as I know no one trying to order these screens has been misled or made promises to so they can not be compared... If you go to the website mentioned in this thread the website talks about problems and issues they are having. So until they show behavior that looks to be deceiving I wouldn't expect this thread to go anywhere bad.

    Hopefully your questions about the 10" can be answered by the person that just mentioned he bought one and is testing it out. The information given to make the raspberry work with it should work with most other devices as well since it should be a simple HDMI interface assuming you are using that interface. I mentioned about the iOS display because I have seen mention elsewhere that the iOS machines do not display everything to the external display like android devices do.

    Devices such as the raspberry need to be told what the device does where as windows machines and other machines can detect the hardware and set things accordingly automatically assuming the device has compatible hardware.

    As far as I can tell from the specs of the 10.1.it won't do audio.its a hdmi to lvds adapter that interprets the touch screen and outputs it as a hid usb device.nothing more.the 7' is new as does both....I would rather have the 7'screen fitted by now but this is what happens with a preorder.delays happen....at least it wasn't over $500.

    First off, the ambient light sensor is working, I just didn't have it in direct enough light. Reading on their website you can just short the right connections to cause max brightness all the time or hook it up to a potentiometer instead. I think I'm just going to make sure it's placed somewhere in the car that will ensure full brightness during daytime.

    As far as side angle viewing, I would describe it as "full". At a certain point the angle gets so extreme you can't make out the image, but the pixels never stop showing. I took a quick and dirty video to show that to you guys, along with a couple of pictures. The first was straight on and the flash created that bright spot, but it's a better picture in terms of representing image quality compared to the second one.

    One last thing. There is a USB port on the controller board that I'm not sure if it's necesary. I'm using the screen without it because there is a direct USB connection from the screen to the computer. I'm wondering if to get full functionality if I need to hook it up, but touch is working without it. I haven't experimented with multitouch yet though. I really have only tinkered for a few minutes.
    When you have a chance can you look a the ribbon connector coming out of the display and see if its a 4 wire or 5 wire. Also any pictures of the back would be great!

    Thank you

    Nope and that won't happen any time soon either, unfortunately.

    Chalk-Elec have posted a message on their Twitter account.
    There are now problems with the connection between the screen and the controller board.

    We canít keep you waiting anymore, therefore we decided to offer you one of following:

    - we refund your money and provide $15 discount coupon for any current or future purchase in our web-shop
    - alternatively, we can offer our current 10″ bundle as a substitution
    More info in their blog.

    Nobody gave the actual dimensions on the 10, right? I think someone asked a page or 2 back(I'm too lazy and half asleep after a long day to start poking through comments :P )
