Before, even with tinted windows I had to use the brightest setting when I stopped for a while to perform work on my laptop in car. Now with these shades I can use a dimmer setting and save battery charge.

First I could not figure how to fold them up, even with the written directions, and finally found a youtube video and I learned. Now it's easy. Also, they came with a kind of "oily" smell, so I hand washed them with Tide and soft brush, rinsed well and that solved that problem very well.

I specifically ordered this item as I wanted two separate panels like the picture shows. However, when I went to the store to pick it up, it was one long panel. That design seems to require you to use your visors to hold it up; I do not like doing that. The two separate panels are much easier to operate, and can be put in place easier. We checked the part number against the website, and it matched, so that was not the problem. I guess the website is out of date? Anyway, buyer be warned! Not only that, but when I went to return it 5 minutes later after trying it out in my car, and waiting in line again to do so, the store told me "you have to wait at least 15 minutes to do a return. you aren't in the computer yet." Are you kidding me? What a pain.

Good so far...

Comments about AutoCraft Basix Magic Shade - Jumbo:

So far so good. Only just got this so it's hard to tell for sure. It is meant to replace a previous shade which I absolutely loved, until one year later when the black fabric around the edges literally started disintegrating. A real deal-breaker considering my car has a light colored interior and this fabric turns into a fibrous dust. Not as big a fan of the two piece system, but time will tell if it holds up to the blazing Florida sun. If it can last more than a year or two and not pollute my cars interior, it will be a success.

Not as described - no longer two separate rectangular panels

By 

from Huntsville AL

Verified Buyer

Comments about AutoCraft Basix Magic Shade - Jumbo:

This product is no longer comprised of two separate rectangular panels as pictured, but instead a large swath of fabric with two curcular spines. As such it can no longer be used without flipping down the visors, which I'd rather not do any more than necessary to avoid additional wear on them. This might work for some people, but not for me. The product description and pictures need to be updated.

Comments about AutoCraft Basix Magic Shade - Jumbo:

I have only had for 2 days...it is lightweight and easy to open. It covers the entire windshield of my Hyundai Tucson. Folding it up is a bit of a challenge, but the compact nature of the folded state makes it easier to store in a small crevice between the front seat and center console.

    It is a good size and fits well a 2013 camry. However it is thin (thinner than the two I have owned before). It has worked well so far (2 days), will see how it holds up in the middle of summer.

      The windshield in my car is very long and it would be nice if the shades were longer. I am still able to use them by manipulating them around the mirror.

        I love this product, the only thing that would make this better would be if there were a strap on each section, currently there is only one strap for use when it is fold but I make use of this strap on my rear view mirror. If the other side had a strap as well it would improve the stability while in the window. Just my .02c.
