    The screen brightness is listed at 350cd/cm2...pretty dim and might be difficult to see in anything but a real cloudy day, My Nexus 5 which I use on my Vision is listed at 430 nits and it is still even hard to see. I would shoot for something around 500 if I you want a decent capability in sunlight

    Thank Fizz, any suggestions, who makes something like that, I do like the no blue screen feature with the M500

    Don't take any notice of the quoted brightness figures....

    I have one and it is more than bright enough even in brilliant sunshine. Obviously you need to have the supplied sunshade attached but I think that's a given.

    I have used the M500 with the sun directly behind me and it is not a problem.
