...such as screens on the chargers that you just can't read when they get a bit of direct sunlight on them!!
You'd think they'd be able to come up with a screen that can handle sunlight - I mean I know it's Britain but come on!!
rant off

Geniepoint screens seem really bad for this. last time we used one it was bright sunshine, shining directly on the screen, and the screen was completely unreadable. As we were having a problem with it (and the app), the only solution was to get a blanket out of the car and use it a bit like the hoods that plate photographers used to use. Shouldn't need to do this, when bright screens have been in use in cars for years, now.

....and trying to work out which you should be looking at, app on the phone screen or charger screen when neither can be read. Often found to be prancing around trying to get phone in shade to hopefully be able to see something useful.....again, ICE drivers pointing and laughing....

So are the old DBT chargers - even at Nissan garages (eg Stoke on Trent) - you would have thought that the installers should have had the sense to install them so that the screen is not facing due South!! (or is common sense too much to ask for these days?)
