Anti-Glare for GPS?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have a solution for glare on a GPS screen?  I finally created a mount that works to put the GPS above the screen but the sun glare kills the effectiveness.  Any solutions?

@jdavis - I have a 2" and 3" ram mount arm, currently using the 2" arm and just angled it as upright as possible, I will play around with the 3" arm and see if can get any more angle.   Thanks for the suggestion.

anti glare screen protector? Works for the Dash why not a GPS?

That is what I am asking.  Do you know of any products that actually work?

With as many anti-glare films on the market, there as many product reviews that claim that they don't actually work.

oh my bad, just woke up and thought you were asking for anti glare fixes not products. 

don't personally own a GPS (Use my phone and Google maps), but i use the "Speedo Angels" anti glare on my dash and love it. 

Looks like they have some to fit Garmin units on their site https://www.speedo-angels.com/product-category/garmin/

I have an anti-glare screen protector for my Tomtom Rider. It works to some extent, by having a matt finish the screen is less prone to direct reflection, but in full sunlight I think your only bet is something like this @betoney

I was going to suggest the same thing.  There are plenty around in various sizes and are used in the drone game for the remote controller.  As long as they can stand a bit of wind!

This is what I use;

It works OK, not great but for most situations it's pretty good. This was when I first put it on. The angle is different in real usage. It is turned down a bit.
