Another in my diary of learning the RT. A trip to the dealer to fix a scratched wing mirror, with reflections on managing glare from the winter sun, negotiating roundabouts with HGV's, and chatting about the satnav. Simple stuff.
Here's the link ... https://youtu.be/6f8WKRxobL8

      Enjoying your vids!  Quick question on the Garmin app:  Does it drain the phone battery quickly?
      Cheers

      No. doesn't seem to. It runs all the time on my Lg G5 Android and I haven't noticed any higher drain. I don't use all of the apps features, but it provides a useful conduit for the SatNav to access traffic and weather.

        Again nice video . Regards winter sun cant really do much about it but try dropping sun visor down a little way (if your helmet allows) also try tilting head forward, depending on helmet and how high sun is, you may find you can use  the helmet shell above visor aperture as sun shield if that makes sense. similar to your suggestion of putting chin bar up but a lot warmer!!

        Cheers for that. I think it rather shocked me the first time it happened as i lost my view so suddenly. Maybe we just ride west in the morning and east in the afternoon?

          That would depend on where you live. Not ideal from lands end.
