How to Protect Your In-Car GPS Navigation System

The experience of driving down unfamiliar roads and highways suddenly became a whole lot simpler in the mid-2000s, which was roughly when in-car GPS navigation devices began catching on en masse. Almost overnight, the days of pulling onto the shoulder to wrestle with an enormous paper map were over.

In fact, thanks to the ever-increasing popularity of navigation consoles, even MapQuest and similar map-based websites have lately begun falling out of favor. Indeed, a vehicle without an LCD display command center today is practically considered suspect.

Your In-Car Navigation System Has a Potentially Expensive and Dangerous Downside

There is a downside, however, to having GPS navigation displays installed in just about every motor vehicle on the market today: The graphics on the displays can occasionally be very hard to see.

On some screens, excessive glare from the sun can nearly drown out any text or graphics, which can potentially be very dangerous. And there’s definitely nothing safe about squinting at your GPS display while you’re supposed to be concentrating on the road.

That’s not all: Drivers who wear glare-reducing polarized sunglasses while they’re behind the wheel frequently complain about the difficulty of reading their navigation display screens. Polarized sunglasses have become increasing popular over the past few years, and for good reason: they do a great job of reducing the sun’s reflected glare. Still, it’s a known fact that polarized lenses significantly reduce the visibility of images produced by LCD or LED displays. (Your in-car navigation system almost certainly has an LCD display.)

What’s the Solution to Your Navigation System’s Glare Issue?

So, what can be done? Quite a lot, in fact. NuShield’s DayVue antireflective film can permanently (and affordably) solve any glare or sight issues you might be having with your car’s navigation display. It allows drivers who wear polarized sunglasses, for instance, to easily and clearly see their displays.

And because  it can be customized for nearly any in-car navigation display on the market today, there’s no need to worry about us not having your specific model in stock.

For drivers who don’t wear polarized sunglasses but still have issues with the glare of the sun washing out their system’s display, we suggest NuShield’s Triple A antiglare film. Aside from the fact that it’s able to transform a nearly-impossible-to-read screen back into a usable display, the anti-fingerprint film technology of the Triple A will also keep unsightly fingerprints from covering your display’s screen.

NuShield’s Protective Films Can Save You Thousands

Both the Triple A and the DayVue films, by the way, come with one more major advantage: They protect a vehicle’s display from scratches. That can be a big plus if your car happens to be leased, since you’ll ultimately be held responsible for any screen damage.

If you own your car and find that your navigation display has become so dark or washed out that it’s nearly impossible to read, NuShield’s DayVue film can save you thousands, literally. In fact, take a look at this story from a Mercedes car owner who wrote to us last year, explaining how the DayVue film saved him a total of $12,000.
