I mounted an HD Road Tech 660 on my Glide, and have found the display to be dim and hard to see, even in the shade. I've checked the screen brightness and it's 100%. I've used Garmin Zumo 550's in the past and had no trouble seeing the screen. With my sunglasses on, I can barely read my pricy new Road Tech. Wondering if anyone else has noticed this or if it's just me?

are your sunglasses polarized? with polarized lenses, the screen is about impossible to read, with non-polarized lenses, it isn't too bad.

Same problem with mine. I also have a 665 (not the road tech) and it is plenty bright. I may call Garmin to see if they have a software patch.

Here's a little demo I did with polarized sunglasses. Note that this was done in a dark room. But you can see the screen is darker when the lens is at the same angle as the 660. Garmin should have polarized the screen 90 degrees off from what they did.







It also helps to mount it so you are looking at it at right angles. In other words, straight on, and not at an angle.
