Being absolutely spoiled with current Honda technology and this may be a selfish or isolated issue but I have a difficult time seeing my factory Navi GPS screen during day time riding. I find myself leaning down and having to put a lot of effort into seeing the display due to glare. Could this be just me due to regressing eyesight or the fact that I wear polarized eye-ware? Regardless I find this option to be not so user friendly during daylight operations but an overall wonderful and useful option. It may also possibly be that this could be corrected with a mini sun shield that could be extended or swiveled over the display unit?
Or perhaps future generation Honda options could be a windshield with heads-up display and/or a Honda engineered helmet that would incorporate all existing sound systems including Bluetooth and a heads-up display? (But then there are liability issues that may prohibit and limit these options?) Or perhaps this may be an opportunity for after market enhancements?
In any event this is just my thoughts and by no means does this glare issue hamper my overall wonderful Goldwing experience.
