That's weird cause the one I purchased did absolutely nothing for glare. I'd argue it might of even made it worse. I kept it on cause it does prevent scratches but for sun shielding and glare resistance it does zero :(

Maybe I got a defective one?

Maybe it's working better since I had installed the small black PUIG windshield that helps stop all the front sunlight from hitting the display. Did you get the Matt finished one??

Yes I got the exact model # listed here. It's a matte finish. It's just utterly useless except for protection of the screen itself. Like I said mine (and maybe it's defective) is at least as hard to see in sun glare (maybe harder) than the bare screen itself!

I also put it on. I rode Bear mountain Saturday 6 1/2 hours. Whenever the sun was behind me zero vis of the screen. Luckily i really dont need to look so much anymore.

Must get the matte finish to reduce glare. I spent 3.99 from Hong Kong. Perfect

Lee, would you say that there's a substantial difference or...? Could you post a link of the one you got ?

Thanks ;)

PS : If anyone could post some pics showing the difference with one installed i'd really appreciate it ;)

Absolutly it makes a difference, I mainly got it to protect the plastic screen from scratches. As simply wiping dirt off with gloves leaves permanent scratches in it. Ill post some pics tomorrow for you

Gents, i'm ready to pull the trigger on one but i know [email protected] all which one to get - and it's not about the friggin' 10€ either, it's just that i'd hate to buy and install something which it might prove worthless at the end of the day especially after waiting 10 days for it to arrive from the intrawebs...

There's one from Speedo Angels and another one from Brotect amongst other ones, most are offered in clear and matte finishes, what say you ? I mean, Lee says it works and JosephHanna says it does jack and [email protected]

If the sun is high and shines directly into the screen then yep, you still cant see ****. evrn with the matte finish. but in saying that, it reduces glare in every other situation. Def dont go gloss or it will be just as bad as stock!
It never bothered me that bad anyway, i put it on more to stop scratching the screen just like my mobile phone screen😎

I will be installing a carbon 1/4 fairing soon anyway, so that should eliminate glare?

So, i installed the matte one from Speedo angels (good, straight-up/no bullshit packaging and fast delivery btw) and...It does improve readability - you still have to put the display into night-mode though for better results.

What i don't like - and this is just a pet peeve of mine - is that the screen is more blurry now - typical of matte protectors really (same thing on smartphone screens) and that - for the life of me - was never able to install these friggin' things without A) leaving air bubbles underneath them and B) aligning them properly :grin

Anyway, for 10€, and just for the fact that it protects the easily scratch-able display made from haribo jelly AND also helping with the readability (somewhat) i'm happy ;)

In the future i'll be also trying the ultra-clear non-matte one as to see if there's any noticeable difference between them.

Cheers

Maybe we have had different experience, I also had the Speedo Angels in matte finish installed on my last ride, in some situations I actually found it worse than without the screen protector. Maybe it's the blurry effect that Rosso mentioned. So now I'm considering removing it, I don't know, I might keep it for scratch protection though.

I think it's because it's indeed blurrier compared to stock, still, it's definitely better (not by much though) compared to not having it installed.

Give the ultra-clear a try if the matte one isn't to your liking - just have something put on it to avoid the damned scratches ;)

I believe the ultra clear will be quite glossy, I have it on my phone. :laugh
