If your eyeballs can take the glare from the sun - try non-polarized sunglasses. Works pretty good for me.

The problem is that the polarizers on the LCD screen are at the wrong orientation for polarized sun glasses. I brought this to their attention about a year and a half ago. They are aware of the issue but I'm guessing that we're out of luck in getting our display updated. I am currently using non-polarized sun glasses for driving.

Same here. Non-polarized sunglasses work fine. Alternatively, you can tilt your head to right or left as much as your neck can stretch, as close to 90 degrees as you can, to line up the polarization planes of your glasses and the display to see it better.

I did exactly what you said, tilting my neck close to 90 degrees, and now the GPS roads do not match the actual driving roads.

I'd love to see pictures that show that. The standards I've seen look just like the other trim levels.
