Topic: Serial Graphic LCD in bright sunlight (Read 1 time) previous topic - next topic


I want to purchase this LCD https://www.sparkfun.com/products/710, but it needs to be VERY readable in bright sunlight.  I will use big letters on the display, so, I should be able to get good contrast.

Thanks in advance.

A graphics LCD would be nice, but the above would just have to do.
