Yep, it is angled so the screen is tilted directly into the sun.

Needs 2 fixes, 1st it needs to be flat rather than tilted and 2nd it will still need a bit of a hood.

All my bike GPS units suffer a bit from it but the early ones had an optional hood and the newer ones have screens better suited.

The Parrot system I had in my S4 Aero was mounted flush so was OK with the roof off.

Looking at the unit it appears to be an ODM Parrot unit.
Is it true ? I just have to pop out to the garage and check again, see you in an hour (or three)

Such an obvious design fault. I really can't understand how it was allowed!

A couple of pics from the Ireland trip.
The first is on Sheep's Head near the lighthouse looking west across Bantry Bay - with no rain!

and the second is on the Ring of Kerry - poured all day!

What a glorious country! Great walking, food, drink, and quiet roads, although the surface in towns was often very poor.
Can't wait to go back.

Drove to Prescott via Taunton and picked up NigelP, roof down all the way causing up the M5 and then via Cheltenham after a pit stop at the Gloucester services for a coffee and p break. Then arrive a Prescott just before 10:00, 130 mile drive, parked up above the paddock and when I got out realised the slope was quite steep ooo scared. After a hour wandering about and taking pictures, some great cars there, decided it would be wise to try and move the Aero in case it rained and then we would never get out, going up. The car in front had gone so move forward and up and got half way and then lost traction. scared Luckily 2 kind gents offered to push and I made it to the top JUST! ooo After what felt like a 10 point giggle at the top to avoid the bank infront I gingerly went down and around into the upper paddock and asked very nicely if I could park my car on the flat where I could get out, luckily I was allowed to.

Left mid afternoon and went cross country via Cheltenham and Cirencester and down to Shepton Mallet, roof off, then we had to stop because of impending thunder storm. I chucked it down after I dropped Nigel off and I am pleased to say only 2 small drops of water came in joy, and no misting up. Dropped hood back down for last 15 miles.

Just checked the MPG after fill up and averaged 26.69, excellent I think, considering we had a few blasts and overtakes.

Off to the local Pecorama Car show tomorrow, so up early to wash of Rosie in Blue and hopefully will not have rain.

By the way I have discovered she if Jaguar Flag Blue Metallic which was the colours of the Ecurie Eccose race team in the 50's and 60's.

Similar thing happened to me at Prescott Adrian. Parked on the grass facing slightly down hill and when it came to reversing back up to the tarmac the rear end crabbed sideways towards the car parked next door. Nailbiting but luckily it just gripped in time.

How do you manage 27mpg? I got 16 mpg on the last tank full and thats driving like Mother Teresa. OK there's a bit more power but not that much to account for the difference.

10k km - best of 8.6l/100km - worst of 14.2l/100km - average of 10.5l/100km. And I enjoy the car's full 370ps on a regular basis!

That doesn't really help does it smile
