Problem with cradle
Forget the tape provided. Sun Visor must be installed on Nav 5 after being put in the cradle. Bottom clips cannot grip bottom edge while on the cradle which makes the sun visor not as secure as it should be.
Nav 5 Sun Visor
Fits like a glove to the unit and makes a big difference in direct sunlight, no matter what time of the year.
Should be standard equipment
The Nav V in overhead sunlight is very difficult to see clearly due to glare. Which is a problem in the backcountry for me. This thing snaps right on. Simple. And should help a lot.

This glare shield is important for all Nav units prior to Nav-VI. It doesn't solve all viewability problems, but it is a great help.
Better visual on the NAV 5
She clips right on and i work mostly nights and i noticed that the highway lights don't give me glare and i can read my display better and i can acquire what i'm looking for faster enabling safer driving

Excelente producto, para cuando el sol esta a plomo ayuda a poder leer el Gps
I have a R1200RS so the screen was always in the sun. I didn't use tape to install as I like to remove at night on long trips. Great during middle of the day when sun is primarily overhead.
Perfect fit and finish.
I'm trying very hard NOT to add anything to my current R1200GS. Less is More, but I couldn't help but purchase the
visor for the GPS... in full sunshine my tires old eyes don't get all the details all of the time. The fit and finish is perfect, but the overall effect is not absolute. There is still a lot of glare to contend with and I am going to have to consider the overall effectiveness over the few thousand miles. No doubt about it - the visor is an excellent product. Perhaps it will just need some getting used to.
Nav 5 sun shade
Minimal benefit, better than without but screen still washes out depending on where the sun is (behind is obviously the worst).
BMW Nav 5 Sun Visor
Easy to install but the double-sided tape does not keep it secure, even installed as per the instructions. Had to acquire and use more tape. No big deal, but at the price, it should have arrived complete.
Worth the investment
I have an R1200GS and I use my navigation all the time, especially for watching my SPEED. The visor really is helpful and the install in super easy and does NOT get in the way of anything.
Easy install, adds shade to Nav V
A little pricey for what it is, but it is the best solution available. This visor fits perfectly, and is made out of the same type of ABS plastic as the GPS mount. Once installed, it looks like it is OEM equipment on the bike.
BMW Nav V sun glare no more!
This visor is a must have for BMW's Nav V. It greatly improves sun glare during day riding and make navigating much easier! Wish I had found this sooner!
