OLED 2din stereo

Recommended Posts

Hi there - wondering if anyone here knows why it is so hard (impossible?) to find a 2din car stereo with an OLED screen. Sure, call me old (I am?) but a traditional LED screen is rather bright at night, even when its displaying mostly black. An OLED screen has the big advantage of "true blacks" - where it doesn't illuminate when displaying blacks. OLEDs are in a variety of products nowadays, including phones and some tablets.

So, why not car stereos? Sure OLEDs are more expensive, but car stereos are expensive too...

only way to do this currently is to build your own with a raspberry pi and a raw oled. But i agree with the previous statement 100%, if you want oled in your car, you should have it for passengers only. The brigtness factor can be mitigated with a wire from the car used for dimming decks to engage night mode on the double din lcd. I have the mod to make it to where movies can play without the parking brake, but im self controlled enough to not watch them. If you have screens in your car, its a strictly required thing to have had porn showing on them while driving at least once for more than 60 seconds or youre doing it wrong

Ha, weird - you both took that exactly the opposite of how I meant it. Sure OLED gives a better display - what I'm really after is a screen which doesn't generate light when it displays black. My existing 2din screen is, in my opinion even with the dimming, still too bright when displaying mostly black. I find the backlight distracting. Sure, I can turn it completely off, its a hassle. Even when the screen is just displaying what station or song I happen to be listening to, I find it an obnoxious distraction as the driver. When its on that display, 90% of the screen is black, but with a traditional LED that's still 100% backlit. With OLED the actual light produced would be much lower.

What I'm after is an OLED screen because when displaying a black background it will generate less ambient light. I'm really just curious why no one seems to make one, perhaps I have my answer given your replies...

i cant speak for the other responder to this thread, but i definitely understood what you were driving at irrespective of why. You want a double din oled display. that doesnt exist yet.
