Can't see my fish finder

Postby wfish » Mon Dec 05, 2016 6:21 pm

Anyone else have problems seeing their fish finder with polaroid sunglasses. I got a new hook 4 and can hardly see
it with sunnies on. Clear as a bell without them.
Thanks Wfish

Don't have a hook 4, but wonder if the polarisation on the screen is in the wrong direction perhaps. Can you see it when you turn your head sideways?? If so, then you have a conflict with the polarisation direction of screen and sunnies. Not sure if you can fix this - check with other screens at dealer/vendor perhaps to assess if it's an issue across the board, if not, then contact Lowrance?

I had terrible screen/glare issues with my Lowrance. I fixed it though - I bought a Garmin. ...
