Rear camera monitor suggestions

Bought a Tadi Brothers rear camera system. Fairly good quality and image but has a real problem, I can't see the screen while wearing my sunglasses! Talked to customer support and they said that all their monitor screens are polarized to make them easier to see in bright sunlight. The problem is that they have polarized their screens vertically, the same direction as ALL sunglasses. That means the screen is essentially black while viewing with sunglasses on.

Does anyone have a recommendation for a 7" monitor that is either non-polarized or polarized horizontally so that I can see it while driving. I hate to waste money on another one, but having to take my glasses off every time I want to see to screen is just a pain.

Surprised that no one has come up with any suggestions! I can't be the only one with this problem!

I changed out my Voyager camera controller and went with a 7' monitor form RVS which is Rear View Safety. Monitors and cameras for the trucking industry. Works great.

Actually, it's cross polarization that causes blackout (e.g., the first only let's one direction through, the second only lets the other direction through, so together they let nothing through).

My only, not directly helpful, suggestion is to NOT get the Garmin GPS with integrated camera. Every time it briefly loses wireless connection, then comes back on, it switches from GPS to the camera. So annoying that I don't use the camera anymore. And I've got a pretty small trailer, can't imagine it with a longer distance for the signal to travel.
