Screen glare on smartphone - anti glare screens?
Trying to find a good anti glare screen for my phone so I can use maps and gps while riding. I did a google search and haven't come up with user experiences or reviews about effectiveness or problems. Typically I would just use a good screen protector, but still lots of glare. Just replaced a dead Samsung S4 (RIP) with an iPhone.
Am willing to entertain other options than a glare screen but haven't thought of anything yet. I want my cake and eat it too
so would like the screen protector to not degrade the sharpness of my screen if possible while giving me glare protection.
Not sure about the bike mount either yet, vacillating on top tube bag with window, Quad Lock, or a more generic phone holder.
Any suggestions how I can visually use maps while riding without stopping to check my phone? Or do I just live with the glare and shade it with my hand when needed?
