Garmin 590 Transflective screen

Is the transflective screen of the 590 difficult to see wearing polarized sunglasses? The 660 (TFT screen) is hard to see with polarized sunglasses on.

I spoke with Garmin this morning about this. The guy did not know the answer but consulted some other folks at Garmin. They came up with that 590 might be a bit better with polarized glasses than the 660, but not much.

I was hoping a 590 owner with real experience to speak up about this.

Had you posted your query in the rather large zumo 590 thread, you may have had better feedback.
