Does anyone else have a difficult time seeing the graph on the depth finders while wearing polarized glasses? I have a pair of Costa's, but suffer the same problem when using cheap polarized glasses. Any way around this?

This is a problem that most sonars have with polarized glasses.

The Lowrance HDS Carbon addressed this issue with their screens.

The polarization is not in the same direction. Tilt your head and you will probably be able to read it. I've been lucky that none of mine have ever interfered with my humminbirds. They also have different color palettes to try to help you out. I'm guessing if you turn the glasses 90 degrees to the screen you can then read it. It isn't just FFers. TVs and other things with the same technology have problems.

The newer Garmin's have no issues with that, or sun glare.
