Do these read good in sunlight?

I'm pretty sure that's why VFDs are used in a lot of vehicles, although that may be partially because of the filters they use.  


There are some videos on youtube about readability on their VFDs - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pdFvIwrVRzw&list=PL73C59C74F4C6AA88


Nothing on bright light unfortunately though

VFD were common in automotive because they can operate effectively over a wide temperature range. Passive matrix LCDs typically have problems at temperature extremes. Modern active matrix TFT LCDs with LED backlight are able to handle to automotive temperature range well enough, so they are now widely used in cars.
