Customer Reviews

My fingers would hit it and knock it off.
Seth G. Beasley
The shade does not do that very well -- and note again, it's not the advertised function.
James Doughty
It does, however, shade the screen from sun glare.

Advertised as sun visor however, in use it's much to small to make any difference in viewing in bright sunlight. In addition, this unit dose not attach very securely to the GPS and is quite flimsy. I dumped this one and bought a GlareStomper 320 Sun Shade Visor for 4.3" GPS Screens visor which works great and does the job as advertised.

Many issues: This device doesn't fasten securely to the GPS - the main reason I bought it was to stop the reflection of the GPS on my windshield at night and it doesn't have enough overhang to block that reflection - and lastly, the inside is shiny and reflects the top line of my GPS upside down -

A 'glare stomper' is the way to go - it's a 'soft' visor and can sag with time - and attaching sticky back velcro to the GPS can be a bit messy - in spite of those short comings, the glare stomper is large enough to block windshield reflection and reduce sunlight glare on the GPS display - it works -

I tried the Sun Shade, but I 'rejuvenated' my old glare stomper with some cardboard support - works much better -

The extensions on the sides are not long enough to block sunlight entering from the sides and back. It does a little from overhead sunlight in blocking glare. It would be better to make the side shields extendable so that after the routing is done, max out the side shields to block side angle sunlight from glaring the screen.

I used this once and it kept falling off whenever I tried to type in an address. My fingers would hit it and knock it off. Great idea, bad design. Didnt really keep sun out all that much either. Save your money $$$$$

What a waste of money, Amazon pop up said others who bought the Zumo 660 purchased this, seemed like a good idea, however spring clips interfere/are very close to the release button on the motorcycle mount, which was not very comforting. It did not fit as snug as I expected or depicted in the photo, so before a 1,100 mile trip I modified it with some felt on the face that touches the touch screen to keep from scratching and or affecting the touch screen. (which it did once) After about an hour in the mid-day sun I decided I could see the screen just as good without it, removed it and disposed of it, and I will definitely make sure I am more attentive to what Amazon recommends if I shop there again.

I bought this item for use with my Garmin Nuvi 265WT. Any reference I make to "fit" is limited to use with that product.

The shade does secure to the product, but it's more of a friction fit based on the spring clasps in the back. I was hoping for more of a "click-in" custom fit. It's worth noting the product makes no such promise, so don't hold my assumptions against it. Once in place, the shade does conform nicely to the size and position of my Nuvi's display.

This is advertised as a sun shade. I've never really had problems with sun glare on my GPS. What was bothering me, though, is the reflection of the GPS display in the windshield at night. (I mount mine low - if you're one of those "middle of the windshield" people I see on the highway, you probably don't have this problem. But I also don't know how you can stand having this thing in the middle of your field of vision all the time.)

My hope in using the shield was to block that upward reflection. The shade does not do that very well -- and note again, it's not the advertised function. If I tilt the whole GPS down, farther than I'd ordinarily prefer, I get only partial relief from the bright reflection that I see higher on the windshield.

My suggestion would be the creation of a different shield that extends farther forward (and in a straight line, not along a curve) to address the intended use I've described.

Never in my life have I bought a piece of JUNK like this. Product description was NOT as described and turned out to be a FLIMSY piece of plastic that did nothing to shade unit from the sun.

Excdellent product. It could not be simpler. It slips right on, no tools, works fine. I use it on a 755T. In fact, I bought a second one for my daughter.
