Yes, the motorcycle specific units have a special provision, and a specific instruction sticker that says IN BRIGHT SUNLIGHT, BE PREPARED TO SQUINT WITH ONE HAND SHADING THE SCREEN OF THIS GPS UNIT...AND BE ADVISED THAT THE BIG TRUCK YOU SAW THREE BLOCKS UP IS NOW TURNING LEFT IN FRONT OF YOU.
The value of spoken instructions from a GPS cannot be understated. And the representation that your GPS will be sunlight readable kind of goes out the window anyway when you are wearing sunglasses or have a tinted shield on your helmet.
