    What are those of you who are using the Ipad Mini doing about sun glare? Have any of you tried the anti glare screen protectors?

    I'm also looking for a working hood.

    I purchased a 'Hoodi TM' from Amazon and it doesn't work well at all:

    The concept is great (fabric, foldable, magnet mounted) but in practice the magnets are not strong enough and the flimsy fabric\construction just flops around too much.

    Try this. Get some cardboard and paint it black. Then use velcro or tape to mount it. Worth a shot and does not cost much.

    You first need sun to have any glare. Come to Germany. Problem solved!

    First off,I don't have a Vision and I don't use my phone for FPV,BUT I do use the anti glare screen protectors on my phone and they work fairly well although not completely infallible.
    One thing I've noticed is very small print and similarly small details do become slightly grainy or distorted by the anti glare film.I don't think it would be too much to still use them for FPV applications though.
    They're pretty cheap to buy so worth a try.
