    Make Touchscreen sun-readable??

    I have a 10.4 inch touchscreen that came with a kiosk PC and have tried it in a beta test in my car.

    It didn't came to my mind that the unit might not be sun redeable... I cannot read most things in daylight inside the car unless its very high contrast.

    can I do anything about it?

    I haven't found a solution so far.

    I know you probably don't want to hear this but the best thing that you can do is get a reflective TFT LCD

    You could try to play with the gamma control within mediacar also

    Removing the touch overlay would work wonders, but then you wouldn't have a touch screen anymore.

    Yea thats not really an option

    You can get a capacitive or acustic wave touchscreen. These are less prone to glare then that resistive touchpanels.

    Priorities man..... got to set correct priorities.... See what is going to hit you or seeing the screen, I know where my priorities lye and as soon as I get my car back from the body shop and my license in un-suspended I will be living those priorities again....

    In short no

    there is less glare with other types of touchscreens though but becasue there is a small gap between the touchpanel and the lcd glare is imminent and unavoidable

    acustic wave touchscreens are on solid peice of glass on the front so there is a lot less glare plus there isn't that resistive coating as in resitive touchscreens
