Do you remember taking cross-country road trips with your family as a child, and tracing the highways in an oversized road atlas with your finger? Maybe you remember taking those same trips as a young adult, and having to pull onto the side of the road to locate your route on a paper map.
Even if neither of those auto-navigation remembrances ring a bell, there’s a good chance you can still recall the experience of logging onto the MapQuest or Google Maps websites for your driving directions, and then printing them out before leaving the house.
Don’t get us wrong: We definitely believe that there’s something to be said for the nostalgic memories of auto travel. But the truth is that when it comes to maps, directions, and auto navigation in general, technology has made the process of getting from point A to point B in a vehicle an almost foolproof experience.
We’re referring, of course, to the modern GPS navigation device.
If you drive a vehicle that was manufactured at any point within the last five years or so, you probably get around town with the help of a GPS system. In-car navigation systems have become so popular, in fact, that many auto manufacturers are now selling cars with the devices already built in. A number of higher-end manufacturers are even beginning to deliver cars with multiple in-dash navigation devices pre-installed. And portable GPS units, perhaps not surprisingly, are more popular than ever. A perfectly competent portable GPS device can now be had from popular manufacturers like Garmin, TomTom, or Magellan for as little as $100.
Is this a good a thing? Well, in our opinion: yes and no. Yes, because in theory, at least, navigation devices make unfamiliar journeys easier and quicker. But also no, because when the screen of a GPS device is obscured by the harsh glare of the sun, it’s essentially rendered useless. What’s more, a navigation screen washed out by sun glare can be a very dangerous thing: In the miniscule amount of time a motorist takes his eyes off the road to squint at his unreadable screen, a deadly accident can happen.
We’ve seen this time and time again with motorists who’ve been reading or writing text messages while driving. And with the growing proliferation of in-car navigation devices, it’s only a matter of time before a deadly accident occurs as a result of a screen that’s been rendered illegible by the sun.
So what’s the solution?
Here at NuShield, we offer an incredibly wide array of screen protection products for consumer electronic devices of all shapes, sizes, makes and models. The anti-reflective screen films we offer for both in-dash and portable GPS units have recently become especially popular, which tells us two things: The days of the paper map are truly numbered. And modern-day drivers are clearly taking their personal safety seriously. That’s certainly a good thing.
The NuShield DayView film is easily the most durable anti-reflective and anti-glare screen protector film available on the market today for your car’s navigation display. And aside from significantly reducing sun glare, the DayView film will provide long-lasting protection to keep your navigation display safe from scratches and fingerprints.
Here’s an interesting fact about vehicle warranties that you may not be aware of: Most car warranties and lease agreements do not cover damage to a vehicle’s navigation display. Even worse, a replacement display can cost up to $2,000. Which is yet another reason NuShield overlay films are an absolute must-have accessory: Along with protecting you from potential harm, they protect your car’s very expensive display screen from harm as well. They’re also surprisingly easy to install. Should ever wish to remove your screen display protector—perhaps to clean it, for instance—they’re just as easy to remove and reinstall.
