Antiglare screen film

Has anyone tried any products like this to make the TV screen easier to read in the sun? Any wins?

Interesting observation and question...on my F4 the (LCD) screen is really hard to read unless the sun is shining directly on it, and being tucked deep behind the front cowl, the sun rarely shine on it unless it's behind the rider. I take it TFT behave in the opposite manner then, ie it's easier to read when the sun isn't shining on it.

I did try cutting down an ipad antiglare screen ptotector, had three goes but was never completely happy with the fit - a few bubbles at the edges. Plus although it did reduce the glare, it also made everything look a bit fuzzy, so I gave up with it.

Tried exactly the same as the last post. Didn't go well so removed it. I was doing it more for the purposes of protection so just resigned myself to being careful, especially when cleaning. I don't find the display that difficult to read unless the sun is reflecting directly.

What if you tint the windscreen (to provide a darker background to the dash)? If that's not enough, you could also see if you can increase the backlight brightness (if there's adjustment, or if not then see if an electronics place can do it). I know with some field laptop you can get the backlight increased by a tech.

I leave my screen on night mode verses daytime mode. I thought the daytime mode at night was way too bright. Occasionally, the screen is hard to read in direct light, but it is in night mode all the time and I do not want to switch back and forth.

Omitted to mention that mine's permanently set on night mode too. Seems to work slightly better for visibility.

The handbook infers that there's an automatic option for switching between the two, either that was never programmed or it was removed as part of a firmware update as it contravened some regulation somewhere.
