    Dashboard Gauge Glare

    Does anybody have a good solution for reducing or eliminating the glare on the dashboard gauges. I find it very difficult to read the gauges during the day

    Can't help you EX.  I live in LA and the sun is always in my face or at my back.   I don't have any glare issues.  Do you wear sunglasses or have a sun visor in your helmet?   You may want to adjust your seating position/posture.     Cheers B

    Since it is a big flat piece of reflective plastic, I do not think much can be done unless you want to fix a layer of sunscreen/tinting to it.
    Or fashion a sunshade device.

    I'm sure I've seen some anti reflective film somewhere on the net. The sort of thing that goes onto phone/tablet screens and other applications. Never tried on a dash but might be worth looking into.

    If you find some you probably need anti-reflective, not anti-glare, as there is a fundamental optical difference. Think it's expensive though for what you get.

    I remember someone here fabricated a "visor" that sat over the clocks, can't think who it was...

    What Ad said about the phone screen cover, but maybe in a 'tablet' size you can cut to fit? Amazon probably has something like that for very little bank.

    I am actually considering something like it not for glare but as scratch protection when I clean.

     I just found a company called NuShield that advertises anti-glare, anti-rerflective films for gps units. I'm going to order some for my zumo 660 and see if I can get a piece to fit over the gauges.
