    Really the only 2 things i dont like about it for the price i paid are:

    1) Glare. Cant stand it. Even with tints it still glares pretty bad. Overcast weather and past sunset this monitor is just perfect thou.

    2) In fluctuating weather, the touchscreen becomes inaccurate. Anytime the weather changes more than so many degrees, i find myself recalibrating the touch. Not sure if this is a normal thing between most touchscreens or not, but mine does it. Its not a big deal since i do have a handheld trackball device i use since its usually more accurate than the touch anyways.

    sorry my post also relates to the above, and from a fellow wrx owner, i live in australia and a couple of people are considering car pcs here but we dont have a local seller of screens, down the track is the k90 still working out for you ? most of my application for the k90 is night time so glare wouldnt bother me as much, im just a bit hesitant because the product will be shipped here and once thats done theres no turning back

    Yea, the screen still works great. The touch screen is a little touchy and needs recalibration from time to time, but you cant expect such a budget screen to be flawless. I have a wireless pointer i use most of the time when interacting anyways, so its not even that big a deal to me. And of course the glare does make it a bit difficult to see at midday, but again, its nothing i cant live without, i set music, then flip back to navi, and just let it do its thing.

    Id say if you can get a deal (under 300 usd shipped) it would be worth it.

    I also have the K90, gives my truck a nice clean look to it, when closed. All the other units had buttons, which I did not like. I am having issues with touchscreen jumping around, thought it was a RF interference issue, but it may be the drivers. I found replacement drivers, will install today, hope this fixes it. I think the k90 is worth it, I guess it depends on how the unit sits in the car. In my car it is readable in daytime and night. Glare is very minimal.
