collision warnings from my own Flarm system?

You could try a hood initially made of light cardboard to shade your
phone.¬* I use an iPad in my C-180 and it works just fine given the shade
from the high wing.¬* It's practically useless in direct sunlight.

Thanks Dan, but an phone is just not bright enough in my bright glider cockpit. The traffic displays sold for Flarm would do fine, but they only accept flarm data, which means I'd have to buy a flarm system. I suspect this to be a marketing decision to drive flarm sales. Because I think this, I will definitely not buy any flarm product.

I use an iPhone 6 Plus in my glider to run iGlide. Brightness is adequate to good,
ditto when using Foreflight or similar (I can switch between the applications
while flying). You can buy an iPhone newer iPhone 6, some of which are even
brighter, especially the newest ones.

Instead of being angry with Flarm for displays that work only with Flarm, be angry
at the Scout provider for making it Foreflight/OS only, and not compatible with
some other display.

Hi Eric,
I agree that screen brightness is a personal opinion. My opinion is that iphones are inadequate as flight instruments. But it's true I can see my iphone screen in bright sunlight, by holding it at just the right angle. I do this for non time-critical information, like looking up airport information. But I want traffic information to be immediate.
I am presently angry at Flarm, for my suspicions of their harmful business practice that I mentioned. I might redirect my anger at Scout later.

I installed a cheapo Flarmview display.¬* It cost about $200, is daylight
readable, and displays Flarm, ADS-B, and Mode 3/A and Mode S transponder
equipped aircraft.¬* If I had to complain it would be that it's small,
but it works extremely well.¬* Oh, and it was plug and play.
