NOTE: The touch screen of the SolarSystem controller is made of a thin sheet of glass, and it is very fragile - a small crack or break will make the entire screen unusable. Don't drop or roughly handle the controller. When pressing the touch screen, you should be able to use the tips of our fingers. If you find the buttons to be too small for your finger, you can use rounded stylus. DO NOT press HARD on the screen. It will crack and this NOT COVERED by the warranty.
