Re: Sunvisor for Zumo 550?
The Zumo's display is supposed to be designed for use outside, that is, brighter than the Streetpilot models that are designed for use inside a car. I have read that the Zumo display not quite as bright as the marine models but I've not seen them side by side.
When the sun is behind me shining directly on the Zumo it washes out a little but is still visible. I don't have trouble seeing the display when the sun is overhead.
That said, I was surprised to find that the display reflects off the inside of the windshield at night. I thought about making a hood for it, or maybe putting some spacers in the upper screws in the cradle to angle it down a little. Only a minor annoyance so I've not gotten to it yet.
