Default Daylight viewability... which is best?

Looking at lowrance HDS T or Simrad evo and was wondering if one was better than the other as far as viewing in full sunlight? Anyone have any bright day pics of either running?

Give me a few days and I can show both. side by side. The HDS T is slightly brighter than NSS8 IMHO but how it compares to Evo2 I dont know yet. Colors are more saturated on the NSS8 though.

But both HDS T and NSS does great where I am in the Middle East with very high intensity sunlight all year around.

I have all three models and NSS Evo2 is the brightest.

Kaz.. thanks look forward to the pic
Abbor, thanks for that info
On the EVO I was wondering if that shiny type glass might cause glare issues?

Put your polarized sunglasses on and do a test. Not all units like polarized glasses. I know.

I would turn it around and say - not all sunglasses are polarised equally ...

It very much depends on the screen orientation - and the way the put on the polarizing filter on your sunglasses. I have found my Maui Jim's to work ok but not great - since they are very polarised. My Ray Ban Titanium have less issues - but probably cheaper polarizing.
