Now let's not spread malicious FUD. My Jetbook, a reflective LCD, works as well as paper or e-ink in bright sunlight, perhaps even better as some e-ink devices (we won't mention names, will we SONY?) are known to fade in sunlight. The PDN is not reflective so is does not do well. All LCDs are not created equal.DigitalAutoPilot;43203 said:LCDs do not work well in bright sunlight.

I saw it in a boating magazine -- the "new and cool gear" page or something like that.Supposed to make LCD fishfinder and chartplotter screens daylight viewable. Looks like you'd have to order one for something with a 10" screen and cut it down. I checked for the Hummingbird 1199C (a 10.4" unit) and they wanted $17 for it.
Saw that as well and was tempted, but with shipping, the price gets up to ~$20, and since I paid < $100 each for my Novels after all coupons and rebates, this seemed a bit much. Any other clever options? The PDN screen doesn't seem to scratch (even though I mostly use a homemade wooden stylus made out of a cut down and sanded/dulled shish-kabob skewer), but it is entirely unreadable outside in the sun. I'm willing to cut whatever material would work myself.And, as to cutting material, I found that laying the PDN face down on my home all-in-one printer/copier/scanner and making a copy of it is a great way to getting a 100% accurate outline of the screen. All you have to do is have good scissor or Exacto knife skills after the copy is made and a sheet of transparent material is taped to it. I just need to find the right (cheap) material.balineseplease;43660 said:If you click the green Custom Size Product List box you will find Pandigital and then the Novel in the selections.
