    Can anyone comment on these two screens? The 590 can be tough to see in both bright light and even in overcast despite turning the brightness level to max.

    I have seen a recent YouTube between the Nav V & VI and it appears that there's an improvement in the VI.

    I can’t specifically compare those 2, but I can say the Nav VI is a quantum improvement over a Zumo 660 in terms of visibility in all conditions.

    Wow it sure is....I went with the Nav VI and the difference is remarkable, I can now see the screen in bright sunlight and overcast. More like looking at an iPad screen.
