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

It helps but is not the answer to all sun glare. If you are riding away from the sun it is difficult to get anything to shade.Published 12 days ago by MGG
Bought this for my Garmin Zumo. This shade does not fit well on the GPS and if used on a motorcycle it will fly off.Published 20 months ago by Al

Does have a tendency to slide around and frequently needs readjusting but does do the job of reducing glare on screen.Published on March 27, 2014 by Joseph H. Thomas
Good product but it did not shade as well as I had expected. Although I would buy it again. THANKSPublished on September 22, 2013 by Charles Adkins
the sides where bent inward. I had to heat it with a heat gun so that the side would not touch the screen on my Garmin 665. It kept on popping off while riding down the road.Published on July 6, 2013 by D. Johanson
