How to choose an LCD display for in-car use

A car has many wild requirements that normal electronic products do not. Your LCD display panel will suffer from dust, particles, water, coke spoils, misuses, vibrations and small hits… the list in endless. Almost no household LCD display is designed to support this. And this is the reason why most car dashboard projects are bad projects and do not last for even a couple of years before many topics arise.

So, How to choose an LCD display replacement for in-car use?

First of all, just do not try anything that has not been validated for in-car use.
Then, go to an aftermarket that focuses on automotive products. Or better, try contacting the big makers from car infotainment and find out who is providing them with the panels. Buy those panels for your car project. It will be much more expensive and you even may not be able to buy them.

And I know because I work for a work leader in car displays and work with the major European car makes as the customers. And I can honestly tell you that a common LCD panel and an automotive LCD panel are absolutely different. OK, here is an ideal replacement choice for you.
