Stopping Sun Glare

 

I just purchased and used the sun visor I bought from: www.glarestomper.com. It is well worth the price which was under $18. Go to the above website and see all the different models they make. From glare to no glare was easy as 1 2 3.

Any questions, please email me.

Thanks. I really needed one.

Thanks.

I am now suffering from glare since I moved my nuvi from the windshield to the center console. However, it is coming in from the rear window, so I don't think this will block it.

sun glare

Thanks for the tip-my c340 has glare (not a total washout, but still bothersome), even though I perch it on the far left dash in the friction mount.

I just bought the sun visor on eBay-glarestomper has an eBay store.

I also like the idea that the unit will be a bit more concealed when driving, especially at night.

I have a new glarestopper

Model # 316 that fits several Garmins, Tom-Toms, Magellan etc. Check at www.glarestopper.com to see if model 316 fits your unit. I have no use for it as I no longer own the Tom-Tom it was purchased for. I would be happy to send it free of charge to anyone that wants it. I'll even throw in the postage if in the USA. If your not in the USA we can still probably work some thing out. Contact me through this page if interested. First come first serve.

Charlie

I will pay the postage

Do you still have this available?

glare

Are there any other options to help stop glare? I bought a clear film that sticks to the screen of the gps. It works a little but it is still very difficult to read during the day.

Hmmmm.....

I wonder if some cardboard, like from a shoe box, painted black and some double-sided tape would work? Kind of expensive for a sun shade.

Thanks for the info

I never noticed glare on my 765t in the windshield, but this could be good. I just ordered a cheap scratch cover from dealextreme. If it adds glare, I can switch to an anti-glare cover.

It is a good idea. Thanks

Alternate anti-glare site for many nuvi models

Available for many models. I'm in the process of aquiring. I'll followup for feedback, as I have also some anti-glare filters significantly reduce visibility. This advertises itself as maximizing clarity, so we'll see.

I wouldn't even go to the trouble of painting it black -

GLARE STOPPER

Charlie,I have a Magellan roadmate 5045LM and would like to have your glare stopper. Do you still have it?

white posterboard--

I made a cheezy hood from white posterboard - I think it was the white board from a new shirt. It shades both the front and rear of my Nuvi, and being white, things don't get as hot during the summer. I suppose I could do the front inside part in black to reduce reflections a bit more, but it works just fine as is.

however you do it, it's a good idea. making one out of white material definitely made a difference in unit temperature!

Auggie. Where can I see more photo's of your Street Rod? Looks like a "39 Chevy?

Just realized this is a long forgotten thread so maybe Auggie isn't watching this thread any longer.

Sunshades for Garmin

On eBay they come in all different screen sizes 4.3" to 7" and even some shades are deeper than others. I have been using one for a few years and would not be without one now.

Sunglasses?

Do polarized sunglasses stop the glare?

As another option I use a product like the one noted above called True Vue made by Lexerd which works pretty good. Available directly from them or from Amazon.

I didn't realize there was a product for reducing glare. I had taken a small cardboard box and cut off one of the ends to create a shield, but it slipped around a bit.

Polarized sunglasses--

Not only will they stop the glare, at the right angle, they'll stop you from seeing the LCD!

Polarized sunglasses are one reason many automakers still use electroluminescent displays of various kinds -- displays which do not have internal polarizers, and will work with polarized sunglasses no matter what the angle. (Many EL style displays also have wider operating temperature ranges than LCDs, which slow down when they get really cold.)

You have a very good point. A few years ago I bought my first LCD watch. I took a look at it while wearing polarized sunglasses and thought it had died! Rotating my arm a few degrees "revived" it. Man, I was nearly mega-peeved about the new watch breaking. smile
