I used my 690SE today for the first time on a 250 mile trip. The RD is mounted on my dash in the center of the car against the windshield. For a significant portion of the trip I could not see the display or had to make an effort to make out what was displayed on the display when the sun was shining on it, which was most of the trip here in sunny SoCal. This was despite the level set to the max brightness.
That annoys me as I ordered the 690SE over the 695SE as I thought the red LED display would be easier to see in day or night.
Is the 695SE or 78SE clearly visible in the sun? I'm planning to return my 690SE for either a Pro 78SE or 695SE but I want something that is visibly with the sun hitting the unit on the dash.
