    Sun damage to lilliput

    Has anyone experienced damage to a lilliput screen or similar on a hot day parked in a car park? Is this is something I should be worrying about??

    I would like to know the answer to this as well. I not consirned too much about the light because the screen will be cover, I worried about the heat that is created on a hot summer day. Will this have any affect on the screen?

    It doesn't hurt...

    But you know what? I figured out a really good way to cover up the screen from both the sunlight and thieves...

    I bought a ProClip which creates a mount between the dash and the space above the glove box.
    I went to Wal-Mart and spent $1 for one of those really cheap cd holders that go over the visor in your car (with elastic bands). I cut it to fit the Lilliput and now I just slide it on and off the screen. Covers it from the sun, and I leave 2 cds in the cover to make it seem as if I just had the creative idea of placing a cd holder there...

    Cool, except that some day some kid will break into your car to steal the two CDs ;-)
