    G4 NOT Transflexsive! Wheres G5 ?

    When will a transflexive screen be added to the G4 setup. The G4 would be perfect if it had that one thing

    The G4 already has a better then average screen. The G5 isn't coming out anytime soon. Probably not until sometime in 2008. I don't know what type of screen it will have, but based on what little information I have seen from Infill, it will probably have the same screen as the G4.

    It still comes down to this if the G4 is trying to hit the market for people who want to install and go a sunlight readable screen will be on there list.

    Although that may be true, I guarantee that once that day comes (G5, G6, or whatever it is called) that there will be some other future feature that will make it perfect . So I'll enjoy my G4 in the meantime, and if I should be blessed enough with another new car with a lonely double-din in the dash I'll take a look at the new "latest and greatest".

    Would you be willing to pay an additional $500 for a trans screen on a product that already retails for $2200?

    my ghetto-but-smart answer to this would be to tint your windows. I have always run limo-wrap on my cars... 1) to prevent the heat from destroying my air inside the car, 2) to keep people from seeing what is inside (GREAT anti-theft issue as well), and 3) makes it darker in there - sun is less invasive.

    i currently have limo wrap on my car and have no issues seeing my NON-transflexive screen even in the middle of the day.

    2) It is proven that tinted windows actually scream "rob me" because you wouldnt tint them if there wasnt something there. I dont see too many Daewoos with tint.

    3) 5% is illegal in most places for a full wrap. Sometime 5% is illegal for anypart sometimes 5% is ok as long as the front has no tint, it varies. But 5% all around is illegal in pretty much all cases except for show cars.

    my response:

    * Limo tint doesn't scream "rob me"... having graphics, stickers, wings, rims, and things of that nature do. If you have a Kia or Hyundai with limo tint, i highly doubt you will be targeted by thieves. If you have an "alpine" sticker or "kicker" sticker on your car, your risk just shot up through the roof. I've had numerous cars with limo tint (3 VW GTIs, 2 Honda Civics, a Chevy Avalanche, a Mini Cooper S, and now an Audi....) and i've never been broken into... each vehicle had one heck of a system. I never put stickers on my cars.

    * I know limo tint is illegal. There are many things that are illegal, but if you don't draw attention to yourself, you won't be bothered by the cops. In big urban areas, cops won't mess with your tint unless you go in "cruising" zones or look suspicious. If you're a stock car just driving around and don't have any warrants, you'll be ok. I'll re-iterate... i've had limo tint on every car i've owned for the last 14 years, and i've lived in 5 states in that time, never once gotten a ticket for tint.

    EDIT: You could put the darkest LEGAL tint on and still get the desired effect of my post.... it would just reduce sun entry into your interior.
