dickie: I've built integral hood/mount for my CF-01 for use on my boat (GPS & charting). The hood helps quite a bit. The display is now readable in the shade. However, it is still hard to read in the direct sunlight. I get around this problem by getting close to the hood where my head and hands can block out most of the sunlight. I wouldn't recommend using this method while you are driving .
I have used both an inverter and a car adapter. Both work without any problems. If you are going to use an inverter, use one that has a sine wave or modified sine wave output. I have read that sometimes there are problems using the adapters with the (cheaper) square wave inverters. HTH.
Electronics run on smoke, if you let the smoke out they won't work
Once when I was trying to use my CF-01 in bright sunlight (unsuccessfully), I took off my sunglasses and placed them over the screen to see what a dark tint would do for readability. It seemed to help, inasmuch as the area behind the lenses were readable wheras the rest of the screen was washed out. Has anyone tried a removable tinted overlay to improve outdoor readability?
