    Just talked to nathan (nmbenson) and im going down there on 4/28 to view a unit that they have modified with the same technique that they will use for ones we send them. ill take pics and compare in direct sunlight and write a complete review for everyone here. Im hopeful that this will be the best solution to the "cant see jack on my screen!" problem.

    Nameeri, Is it possible to, say, take side by side pics of your Xenarc in direct sunlight in comparison to their modded model? I know it wouldn't be a complete apples to apples comparison due to different LCDs, but it would atleast give a reference point.

    Thats what ill try to do. My xenarc is inside my dash, so ill see if they can bring their setup into the car and place it reasonably close to my screen, with the same lighting conditions. Ill take the pic then. Hopefully, this will provide the best basis for comparison. Ill tell you this, you cant see anything on the xenarc with bright, direct sunlight hitting it. The screen has a bright reflection off it, sort of like a diffused bright white light that blocks out everything. Its such a shame.

    If these pics look good then I'm in. I've been looking for a solution to my screen problem for quite a while now.

    Try and get it so your Xenarc is in direct sun so its not too readable and then place thier upgraded panel right next to it. So when you choose a parking space keep that in mind.

    I would bet that if there is a large difference in viewability many "lurkers" of these "LCD viewability upgrade" threads will all of a sudden pop up with found resources to purchase the upgrade.

    I'm also very interested in the pics..
    If it makes your screen truely readable, it would be worth the price..
    Besides the fact that I can't read my screen in day-time, I also have a really annoying scratch on the touchscreen of my lilliput..
    So in my case this upgrade would be extra helpfull

    nameeri, what kind of camera do you have access to?

    Is there someone here that could give a little coaching on how to take a good picture of a LCD in reflecting sunlight to exploit the angles that will show us the best and worst case scenarios?

    I know from shooting a few pics of LCDs there are conditions that help make a good pic and bad one. Lighting angle and flash on/off ect. can easily be used to manipulate a pic to look like the screen is very readable or completely washed out.


    Really hoping this will work well and we can get a reasonably prices “real” solution.to sunlight readability.

    Thanks for coming on here and supplying the knowhow and technology nmbenson, this has been a long time waiting IMO.
