Display and Polarized Sunglasses
 
In the past, many of my vehicles have not been compatible with polarized sunglasses...meaning I could not easily see the screen. What about the WK2?

If you tilt your head a bit you'll start noticing the effect, otherwise it's no problem at all..

So, when you are sitting normally in the driver's seat you have NO problem seeing the screen?

Not at all.. You have to tilt your head like 45 degrees to start noticing it, so you have to do that intentionally :) I was just playing around when I noticed it..

I just bought a pair of polarized sunglasses. During normal driving conditions the screen is fine, but when in reverse I can barely make out anything on backup camera.

It isn't too bad at all. It's a bigger problem if I have the sun shade open and the sunlight washes out the display. It's also more noticeable when in the backup camera mode.

I was just thinking about this, in my FJ I look like a bobble head trying to see what radio station I'm on with polarized sunglasses.

The WK2 did a much better job than BMW did in my wife's 128i convertible. In that car, the radio display disappears completely. A poor engineering job IMO, since likely all BMW needed to do was rotate the covering glass piece by 90 degrees (so that it would be polarized on the same plane as user sunglasses - it's the cross-polarization that makes stuff disappear)

Thanks for the feedback. On my Infinitis, I had to buy non-polarized driving glasses for all the reasons mentioned above. I could only see the screens if I looked straight on from directly over the arm rest. Nothing was visible from either front seat.
