    Is there a way to view the screen in the sunlight. There is so much glare, that makes the screen almost invisible?

    Here's a fix:

    I too find that the sun glare makes it tough to read at times too. Some kind of shade/shield should do the trick.

    Just for ha'ha's I Googled 'sun glare gps screen' and came up with this:

    Another option I found on Ebay was the following:

    It doesn't collapse like the glarstomper, but works well for me!

    I would be more interested in a film that is put over the screen to cut down on the glare

    What was this device called on E-Bay? I like how this looks and it looks better because it does not go over the top to make it harder to turn on & off.
