Also, in this build, I used female header pins to make the LCD detachable from the PCB, which added another centimeter to the depth of the case. The back has slots to engage various mounts:
In the location above, it’s up high enough to see easily, without obstructing the view out the windowshield, and the A-pillar helps to shield it from the sun. The only problem is figuring out the mount. I’m going to try a print a holder to allow me to suction cup it to the corner window next.
The natural ABS gives it a cool glow at night. The photo below only shows the glow on the right, but it actually glows all around.
Although my vision is good enough that I can read the LCD comfortably, even in bright sunlight, I can understand how some people would find it hard to read. I’m going to look into other displays, but at about $8, these 16×2 LCDs are hard to beat.
