I went out yesterday, and the glare on my tablet screen is horrible, using the DJI Go 4 app (really doesn't matter what app, but just for reference).  I tried an "anti-glare" shield (cheapie off ebay), and that didn't help.  Also got a "universal" shield for 7-8" tablets - and it's just a bit too big (another cheapie off ebay).  My tablet is a Galaxy Tab 4 7.0.  Brightness just won't go up all that much on the tablet itself.

So - have others just made their own glare shields?  Or have you found something that helps better.  Brands/links would be appreciated.

TIA

The best sunshield is a shady tree.

  I'd agree - but this is Kansas.  Not many trees, and many of those are hedge trees, or thick crap only a buck can go through.

Here's three, don't have any of these myself. Mine is a cheapo, it's ok but not as good as these.

Thanks - I'll check them out.  Seriously considering just making one that is an "exact" fit.

That's also a pretty good cure for seasickness. Especially if the tree i in Texas.

Hi, I went another way..  I use a screen protector that is rated as anti-glare. It is only the older plastic film type but has a flat sheen to it. You can not get them in the newer glass type and they are very hard to find if your tablet is not so common.
They are easy to find for Ipad so I just cut them down to suit the tablet I use. No reflection off the screen and just turn your brightness up full. My tab is useless in full sun without it. They are usually the same price for whatever model so if you buy a 2 pack to suit the larger Ipad you can cut them in half and end up with 4..
