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 -

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.

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.

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 $$$$$

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.

Don't bother with this. The overhang is not sufficient to provide any significant reduction in glare. In addition, the location of the clips causes interference with the standard Garmin mount for the 665, causing the screen to tilt slightly to the side. The tilt results in a vertical edge pressing into the screen that periodically causes the Garmin to flip to the next mode, responding to the "screen press."

So. A lot of money for a few pennies of plastic that doesn't work and interferes with the functioning of the 665.

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.

This did not supply enough shade for my Garmin when using it on very sunny days. I had been using a folded piece of paper or my husbands baseball hat to shade the screen and knew the small bill on this would not work BUT it did work for attaching the GlareStomper 320 Sun Shade Visor to my gps unit. By sticking the velcro tape from the GlareStomper to this I am now able to cover or uncover the gps unit very quickly and have enough shade to stop the sun from my abllity to see the gps screen. Alone, it didn't do what was needed, with the GlareStomper it is fantastic!
