Question for Tesla re Screens

Anyone know if the Model S screens are visible through polarized sunglasses? I know that my phone screen goes black - this is actually somewhat important to those of us that buy expensive progressive prescription glasses - (any youngsters won't have a clue what I'm talking about - but they will eventually!)

Thanks...

You should add this question to the NAIAS thread.

....and ask about the panoramic roof while you're at it please.

Funny, but I had my polarized Oakleys on when were at Freemont and I could see the display fine.

Also, my 2003 MINI Cooper S has a nav screen that I cannot see very well with these same polarized glasses on. Turning my head slightly makes it all disappear.

Most modern displays have the polarization at 45 degrees to prevent the polarized sunglasses problem. You should end up with about half the screen brightness I think.

AH! Great question, I use polarized progressives myself.
