Nav screen sun shade? (E53)

I've seen 2 threads on this topic, but they were old and didn't have any good info.

The way the nav screen is angled, and without some type of cover (Like newer BMW's), the sun just beams down on it. It makes the screen difficult to see at times, and could likely be a cause for so many nav screen failure's IMO.

Has anyone found some type of sun shade for the nav screen? Preferrably something that doesn't look like poor quality, or out of place.

Thanks

Not seen anything like that mate, I just added a matte anti glare screen protector and it did the job.
