There is that industrial unit.

In reply to: Cell Phone Recommendation - Visible in Bright Sunlight noted it but keep in mind these are not in stores but from harder to procure from sites.

Also, you didn't reveal if this needed to be a smart phone. If not, shop for the old school black and white LCD screens like we had back then. I see a few on the front faces of some flip phones.

Thanks Bob - I will investigate the LCD option. The phone does not need to be "smart" (or even clever).
