Sunshade for a Nexus 7

I've recently installed a RAM Tab-Lock Universal Locking Cradle for the Nexus 7 and nexus 7 as a GPS using Richland Rick's excellent over the dash ram ball mount. I used the WebBikeWorld article:Using a Tablet as a Motorcycle GPS - webBikeWorld.

I used it as a GPS successfully this weekend on a trip thru the NC mountains, except for some times when the sun would wash out the display. Has anyone else used this set up and if so, what do you use for a sunshade?

Wow, that takes up a lot of real estate behind the screen, but I'll bet it's like watching TV :-)
