    I just wanted to say thanks for coming up with this wonderful product! This is the 3rd one I have puurchased over last year and now use them on all my GPS units. One ona motorcycle and 2 in family cars. I'll never use a GPS without a glaresomper on it. Especially the motorcycle. Keep up the good work!

    Wy TomTom was all but useless in bright sunlight until I fitted a Glare Stomper. Now I can use it in all conditions.

    I bought the glare-shield with great expectations that it would cure all my problems. It did not, until I realized that my polarized sunglasses were the problem. I bought a pair of Photohromic or otherwise known as Transitional sunglasses and now I can see my screen perfectly. Photochromic or Transitional sunglasses are the kind that darken automatically when you go out into the sunlight and lighten up when you go back inside again. Most cars mimic being inside, so the darkening effect doesn't work as it should very well, but out on a motorcycle, they work instantly. For anybody still having issues with seeing their screen, have a look at what kind of glasses you own. Now that I have the sunglasses thing figured out, the Glarestomper works great.

    I eagerly installed the Glare Stomper over my Tom Tom 730 on my motorcycle as soon as it arrived last week and promptly went out for a ride during a very very sunny and hot day.
    The Glare Stomper reduced the glare on the screen by only about 25% at the most regardless of the angle I turned . I was somewhat disappointed in the "final results" however it is 25% better than what I had!! This item was very inexpensive at $17.00 and shipped for free in only a few days - $17 is well worth it... until one can find a truely good Glare reducer!

    Great product and a good "bang-for-the-buck" as they say. I had to do a bit of fitting to get it to securely fit the Garmin Nuvi and the associated Ram-mount on my motorcycle. But all is well. Although the screen contrast is not as great as what is shown on the Glare Stomper webpage, there is a significant improvement. Very pleased. I especially like the wire that is sewn in the leading edge of the cover to give it some rigidity. My concern is the number of time it can be folded and unfolded before the wire gives out. However, I'm sure I'll get my money's worth over one long trip. Thanks, Glare Stomper.

    this product is one of those rare solutions that is simple, cheap, easy to use and works exactly as advertized if not better.have them on my 4 motorcycles and pickup. ride the bikes coast to coast, north/south, east/west, these visors are great. they even do yeomen's duty in the rain, with the gps behind a wind screen all but the heaviest rains are no problem. heavy rain = visor with pipecleaner (did this to all my visors) and ziplock bag and I keep going. simple is always best, $200 gps with this visor vs. a $1000 one, with anti glare screen and waterproof case. thanx for a great product

    I had bought one of these a few years ago for my One XL & introduced my uncle to this product too & he purchased one & now since I just bought a new GPS I am glad to purchase another one! Great product, it does the trick!

    Hey Larry! You don't need a 'pipe-cleaner' anymore! All of our visors now have a wire built into the front edge.

    'Had a chance to do a short 200 mile loop using the GlareStomper this past weekend. What a difference! No more "wash-outs" like I used to get, where I was reduced to merely listening to my GPS directions at times. The GlareStomper will DEFINITELY be accompanying us on our run down to the National Victory Rally this coming weekend! (And anywhere else we take our bike to!)

    Thanks for a great product backed by even greater service

    I belong to a riding club and saw one of your shades on another guys ride. I ordered one for myself and after using it for several weeks was thrilled. Since then, we have purchased at least 7 of your products for various GPS units. Wanted to say what a great product and thanks for your excellent customer service. Job well done!

    Works as advertised. I purchased this item for my Garmin Zumo 660 for use on my motorcycle, but I even use it the car. Took it a road trip, everyone thought that the GlareStomper was the greatest add-on for a GPS they have ever seen.

    When I first opened the package I thought this was a JOKE! It sat on my desk for weeks before I call your company to ask for a refund. You convinced me to TRY IT! So I decided what the hell, I'd better give it a try. I was AMAZED! What a difference! I can clearly see the my Garmin even when I'm wearing sun glasses in my open convertable. Thanks Glarestomper for coming up with this nifty simple device. I'll be telling my friends for sure. Thanks again.

    Love It! Love It! Love It!
    I had one of these on my Gamin Nuvi on my motorcycle. I decided to get a motorcycle specific TomTom and order the Glarestomper the same day as I ordered my GPS. The Glarestomper arrived the next day. I had to wait several days for my GPS to arrive to get it all set up!
    Great Product!
    Great Price!
    Excellent Customer Service

    I must admit I was a bit of a skeptic. After riding 1500 plus miles on a recent motorcycle ride I am sold. The Shade is mounted to my ram mount that holds my Gamin GPS and worked as advertised. It's one of those type things that are so simple, I wish I had thought of it first. You have a great product and I doubt I'll every ride without it again. GREAT JOB!

    This will be our 3rd glare stomper. Have a new unit that needs protection. This unit is dedicated for our motorcycle. Have used in the past and just love these things. Really work well in our vehicles too.

    Hi, We have Glarestompers on our two Garmin Nuvi GPS units, and they work great blocking out unwanted sunlight. I also wanted to mention to you another use I found for a Glarestomper. A while back I installed a new garage door opener in our condo's garage. The unit has an electric eye that stops the door from closing if something is under the door as it comes down. It turned out that the rising early morning sunbeams would hit the electric eye sensor and the door would not close. After I figured out the cause of the problem, I purchased a Glarestomper and installed it on the electric eye sensor to shield the sensor from the morning sun's rays. Problem solved! Our garage door opener has worked perfectly ever since. Glarestompers can be used on more things than just GPS's...

    Had purchased for a Nuvi 705 but I never thought that the Ram holder was larger, therefore it did not fit very well. I have repurchased by measuring the height and width and purchased a # 322 with the hopes that is large enough.

    I bought the Glare Stomper after reading negative reports about other GPS hoods (loose; falling-off; poor performance). I have a Garmin 660 and the supplied Glare Stomper fits perfectly and, by hooding a good 6-7cms to the front and sides of the GPS, works excellently. A plus point is that when off the mount, and with the Glare Stomper folded flat, the GPS still fits in my zip-up storage case so I can store it out of sight.

    Ordered my glarestomper on Friday, arrived in Michigan on Tuesday. Tried the unit in the sun today on my motorcycle and it works great. Thank you very much! I will be sure to recommend it to others.

    Ordered mine about a week ago. It arrived in 2 days. Like Jim C. I tried it on my motorcycle and it works great! Made a big difference. Well worth the money spent. Highly recommended!

    I love the idea of your product. I have a factory navigation system in my toyota Sequoia and cannot see the screen during the day due to glare. The screen is slightly angled up. Terrible design, but I've searched the web high and low and cannot find a solution. Your design is awesome for the portable GPS market. Since you would have zero competition, I suggest you figure out a way to modify your design so that it could be incorporated onto the dash of a new vehicle to eliminate the glare problems. I would love to be your test driver for it.

    My families reaction, when they saw it, was 'did you make yourself?' However, it does work and is worth fitting.

    Prior to adding a GlareStomper to my Garvin Zumo 660, I was simply not able to rely on being able to see my GPS while riding my VStrom. Frankly, it was very annoying and no matter how I repositioned the GPS, I couldn't see it when the sun was shining on it. To my good fortune, another satisfied VStrom-riding GlareStomper user recommended your product and it has solved all the issues I had around "seeing" my GPS. Super easy to install, the Zumo power button still works reliably when depressed "through" the GlareStomper material AND the product remains rigid even at fast highways speeds. Two enthusiastic thumbs up!

    I love the idea of the GlareStomper as it does enable me to see my GPS in the bright sunlight. However, I am having to reattached constantly as the glue holding the Velcro strips to my GPS melts in the sun causing the shade to fall off.

  • #32

    GlareStomper (Thursday, 30 April 2015 04:08)

    To Alison and All! We use the highest rated temp adhesive Velco Makes. But still, it's only good up to 150-170 degrees. DO NOT use Velcro available at most stores. It will melt at 130 degrees. We well provide Velcro to you for FREE if you just contact us via the contact page.

    If you leave your (mostly black) GPS on the dash in your car, temperatures can easily exceed this. Don't do it. This VERY bad for your GPS.
