GARMIN 660 or 665 readable in sunlight?
I'm trying to decide on purchasing a Garmin 665 or 660 Zumo GPS .
Up to this point, I've been trying to save some money and use the Garmin Nuvi from my car with only slight success. Yes, it tracks where I'm going and can give me voice commands for directions but you cannot see the Nuvi GPS in any kind of sunlight even with a GPS hood. I looked at the Numo 550 and for various reasons, do not want that model.
Those who are currently using the Garmin 665 or 660 Zumo models, please let me know if you can comfortably read them in normal sunlight. If you are using either model, do you use a GPS hood and, if so, is that the only way you can see the GPS in sunlight?
I just don't want to spend the bucks if the 660 and 665 are no brighter than the Nuvi.
Thanks in advance,
