Screen Glare Fixes

Are there any visors or screen covers that can cut down on the Infotainment screen glare? My apologies but I didn't do a super-thorough <search> on the forum. I was lazy. My bad. Was looking at some bikes the other day and really noticed it in bright sunlight. Figure a fix has to be out there to cut it down a bit.

What are you guys using?

Regards,
Gray

No feedback to provide, but this could solve the issue: Sun Visor Harley-Davidson 6.5 Boom!™ Box Infotainment system

Grayman, if you decide to try that visor please provide a review. Thanks a bunch; pinching pennies here.

I want to order this part but I have never even heard of the company "Robin's Hoods." Has anyone ever dealt with them? This part looks like a cure for the glare problem if it's legit.

Screw it. I ordered one. For $40, if it sucks, I'll throw it away. Once I get it, I'll post some pics and a review. Thanks Beaver!

The glare comes from the sun at your back, that shield isn't gonna do a thing. Other than look cool.

Overtime pays more because of what you're missing, money isn't everything.
