View Full Version : Virtual cockpit in direct sunlight

18-01-2016, 08:57 AM
I'm wondering if is there any visibility issues with new virtual cockpit when sun shines directly to it. Or slightly from left? Local dealer, unfortunately, does not have any demo cars with VP at the moment, so can't try by myself.

Can't say I have noticed anything...but not really looked out for it in particular if that makes sense

No issues with the virtual cockpit I can recall. The heads up display became a little hard to see in extremely bright light and dirty windows but no problem with the cockpit display.

I drove a new TT with VC earlier this week in very sunny late afternoon conditions. No issue whatsoever beyond the reflections you'd get in any other car.

I think they specifically angled the virtual cockpit display tilt forward which is different that the analogue version to avoid any glare issue. Personally i prefer the analogue mixed digital set up.

I have had direct sunlight on the VP driving down the motorway and it was fine.

Polarized sunglasses and the HUD is not a good combination though...
