Display visibility limited depending on your viewing angle. (Attn Honda Owners!)
on December 26, 2012
This stereo's display is unreadable in the daylight if your viewing angle is straight on or less then straight on.
This means if your stereo is mounted high on your dash, like mine - 2002 Honda Civic, and it tilts slightly upward, then you will not see the display in the daylight.
It's like the LCD on a calculator. You can see it better at certain angles. In this case, the display is bright and readable when looking down at it, but if you are below it, or even to it, it is very dim and washed out.
I am hoping I can return this item. I would keep it if the display was readable, but it just does not handle the angle that the radio sits at in a Honda Civic 2002.
Just to be clear - it is not direct sunlight washing it out, just being in daylight is enough to make the display unreadable.
