2014 Chevrolet Silverado: Touchscreen Visibility

December 13, 2013

2014 Chevrolet Silverado

Seeing the touchscreen on our 2014 Chevrolet Silverado is easy. This is notable, because a few of our long-term test cars (such as the Dodge Dart) have great touchscreen interfaces that are wasted by being washed out in the sunlight. Not so with this one.

I can browse and select songs easily and see the Silverado's navigation screen regardless of a rising or setting sun. Chevrolet's MyLink is pretty user-friendly in general, and being able to see the controls, makes it that much easier to use.

    Now this is laudable. They got this right and they got a lot of stuff right with this vehicle, once you get past the ruler-and-protractor styling.

    But how?

    +1 banhugh. Is the screen just many times brighter? Better choice of color scheme?

    @banhugh & hybris: Probably just a good quality anti-glare layer in the screen's construction that helps diffuse the bright sunlight.
