Improved Wet and Glove touchscreen profiles
11 Dec 2020
Improved Wet and Glove touchscreen profiles are now available for Mesa 3 Windows model units as well as for newer Mesa 2 units that have the US Micro (MIPI) display change. This is being installed on new Mesa 3 and Mesa 2 units from production. To install this on a previously shipped unit with this display, download and run the relevant patch utility from one of the following web pages.
- Mesa 3 Windows cumulative patch update 20330
- Mesa 3 Android OS release 1.0.1-20201210
- Mesa 2 Windows cumulative patch update 20330
Even with the improved touch profile update, we still recommend using a bare finger or the soft-tipped stylus (or our modified grounded tether version) in wet and/or cold conditions, and not the on-board fine hard-tipped stylus (as is warned against in the manual). The unit must be at a 30 degree or more angle from horizontal to prevent water accumulation on screen. Screen protector sheets can cause less accurate responses in such conditions. In extreme conditions, applying Rain-X or a similar hydrophobic coating can help. If further suggestions are needed, please see the following web pages.
