Having Trouble Seeing Your GPS When Wearing Polarized Sunglasses?

If you have problems with glare while driving, the best solution is to wear polarized sunglasses. The lenses are treated with a film that behaves as an absorptive polarizer, which prevents the transmission of light that’s not in sync with other light waves. While the process behind polarization is esoteric, the end result is a reduction of glare.

Everyone knows that glare from the sun or other light sources makes driving more dangerous. Glare can temporarily blind drivers, causing them to miss important visual cues on the road.

Tractor GPS with DayVue Anti-Reflective Screen Protectors Makes Farming Easier

Increasingly, larger farms are relying on technology to help maximize the crop yield in the field. Whether its a tractor, combine or other large farm equipment you will find GPS devices such as the John Deere 2600, the Edge from AgLeader and the AgGPS Field Manager from Trimble.

By evaluating your sowing density and by properly estimating your fertilizer needs, you can maximize your crop yields while simultaneously keeping fertilization costs down. You really can’t effectively assess local soil and climate conditions without global positioning capabilities. However, you won’t be able to effectively perform your job if you are not able to read your display. When the sun is close to the horizon at sunrise or sunset, you find that glare interferes with your ability to see the display.

How to Protect Your In-Car GPS Navigation System

The experience of driving down unfamiliar roads and highways suddenly became a whole lot simpler in the mid-2000s, which was roughly when in-car GPS navigation devices began catching on en masse. Almost overnight, the days of pulling onto the shoulder to wrestle with an enormous paper map were over.

In fact, thanks to the ever-increasing popularity of navigation consoles, even MapQuest and similar map-based websites have lately begun falling out of favor. Indeed, a vehicle without an LCD display command center today is practically considered suspect.

Your In-Car Navigation System Has a Potentially Expensive and Dangerous Downside

There is a downside, however, to having GPS navigation displays installed in just about every motor vehicle on the market today: The graphics on the displays can occasionally be very hard to see.

On some screens, excessive glare from the sun can nearly drown out any text or graphics, which can potentially be very dangerous. And there’s definitely nothing safe about squinting at your GPS display while you’re supposed to be concentrating on the road.

That’s not all: Drivers who wear glare-reducing polarized sunglasses while they’re behind the wheel frequently complain about the difficulty of reading their navigation display screens. Polarized sunglasses have become increasing popular over the past few years, and for good reason: they do a great job of reducing the sun’s reflected glare. Still, it’s a known fact that polarized lenses significantly reduce the visibility of images produced by LCD or LED displays. (Your in-car navigation system almost certainly has an LCD display.)

Proper Care for your Vehicle’s Navigation Screen

While you’re out traveling and using your vehicle’s navigation screen it’s going to inevitably get dirty and will need to be cleaned.

Most people will probably use a dab of window cleaner or another general purpose cleaning spray on their navigation system in their car with a paper towel or cloth, but unfortunately this can completely ruin the screen and make it unusable.

The alcohol or ammonia found in the cleaning solution will streak and cause damage to the vehicle navigation screen that will be next to impossible to fix unless you take it in to be professionally repaired.

Toyota RAV4 Solution for GPS Daytime Visibility Issues

Frequent complaints have been made regarding the visibility of the Toyota RAV4 navigation screen in daylight, especially from drivers wearing polarized sunglasses. In situations of direct sunlight or where sun glare affects screen visibility, the Toyota RAV4’s navigation screen appears dark, and images and text on the screen are indiscernible. This not only causes drivers discomfort, but it is also a safety hazard. Those who wear prescription sunglasses and cannot remove their glasses to get a good look at their screens face particular dangers due to the visibility of the RAV4’s screen. Owners of the RAV4 often find themselves stuck with this problem after they’ve already purchased the RAV4’s navigation system, and they seek a problem that will allow them to continue using the system while avoiding visibility issues.

Car Screen Protector Beats Replacing Car Navigation Screen

We love hearing from people about their experiences with NuShield. When we hear the kinds of problems people have – we can share the solutions that work for them with others who may have run into similar situations. This story is about a how NuShield car screen protector saved $12,000.

Mercedes SL350 with car screen protector

Recently a Mercedes car owner wrote to us. Here is his NuShield car screen protector story.

Four years ago, I purchased a two-year old Mercedes SL350. During previous ownership or pre-delivery prep, someone used window cleaner on the COMAND satellite navigation screen, which partially removed the anti glare coating from the display.

With a quote of over $6,000.00 for a new COMAND, I looked for an alternate solution – and found NuShield.

When I installed the NuShield film, I thoroughly cleaned the screen to remove the remaining anti glare coating and installed the DayVue anti reflective film. The film fitted perfectly and returned the display to better than original condition — both in clarity and in full sun condition.

My visual experience with the NuShield film has been perfect — even with the roof down and in full bright sun. It was easy to fit and needs very little cleaning.

The film is better than expected. It lasted like new for four years until I recently scratched it accidentally with a vacuum cleaner. I re-ordered another DayVue film and expect it to return the display to perfect condition — saving me $6,000.00, again.
