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.
PS NO!!! I am not a stockholder.
Thanks. I really needed one.
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.
My 2720 hasn't suffered from glare issues - excellent readability in full Texas sun!
C530 better antiglare
Then my nuvi 350.
Thanks for the Web site I am go ing to get 2 of them for my GPS'S Thanks Again
Mine Is Same way no glare only my c530 and my nuvi has glare and hard to see in the sun The SP2720 Is a OK
That is the major thing that I miss with my c530, the antiglare!!!!!!!!!!!
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.
Which unit would you recommend for the least glare?
Only drive at night.
Yeah, I'm a smart-arse.
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.

Do you still have this available?
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.
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.
Very helpful info - thanks.
Thanks I have been wondering if there was something for the Nuvi's.
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
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.
From the site:

I wouldn't even go to the trouble of painting it black -
Charlie,I have a Magellan roadmate 5045LM and would like to have your glare stopper. Do you still have it?
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.
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.

Thanks for this information. I need one.
Glare - what glare??
I was thinking the same thing myself.
If the glare is real bad, I put my Cubs hat over it.
my 855 is actually very good in the bright Texas sun.
glare, I just tilt it up toward the ceiling. No more glare.
Thanks for the tip. I need one.
Five years later and I am still using it..
Thanks for the info! Looks like a simple but great solution to an annoying problem.
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.
For years, I have been using cardboard and tape that provides the same solution. It is inexpensive and easy to replace.
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.
The polarized glasses would look odd.
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.)
Should be fairly easy to rig something up
How do you know until you have tried it?
Going to look into these. Thanks!
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.
My Frontier has a flip tray for the Garmin, depending on Sun angle we just adjust the angle, no glare and its free
