So I've got my XSE arriving in a week or so and starting to make a list of accessories I want to get. Nothing too crazy - mainly some Husky floor liners, maybe a cargo net and mat for the trunk, and definitely a good sunshade (I'm in Texas). My Camry will have the technology package which includes lane departure warning.

I got a heavy-duty folding sunshade for my wife's Subaru about a year ago from AutoAnything, this one:

I was going to order the same for the Camry, but noticed it doesn't differentiate between cars with Lane Departure vs. without.

The similar sunshade from Covercraft *does* let you specify if you have LDW:

So how different is the windshield with/without LDW? Is the area around the rear view mirror just slightly bigger because of a camera there?

I guess I should just play it safe and get the Covercraft but figured I would ask.

Thanks!

I can't answer your question but I did buy the Covercraft UVS100 shade for my XSE without the lane departure warning. I like the fit and the way it goes into place but two things about the shade bother me. First, the silver side can get extremely hot, almost to the point that it feels like it's burning your hand if you touch that side when you're folding it up. Second, it's somewhat heavy and I wonder if that could eventually loosen the mechanism that keeps the sun visors in a fixed position.

Geez, I have to start keeping get up more... Never realized they made car specific sunshades, always thought they were generic Universal fit that came in one or two sizes.

You are kidding aren't you? You have a sunshade in the direct sun in a car that may have over 120 degree air temperature and you want it to be cool to the touch? The one I use is always very hot. Mine is 1/4" thick,silver colored on one side, not light, and hasn't bothered my Avalon's sun visors in three years. I'm lucky, I got mine when I had a '10 Fusion and it fit my '12 Camry too.

No, I'm not kidding. I don't expect it to be cool to the touch but this shade gets much hotter than any other that I've ever used. They're always hot but this one was shockingly hot the first time I touched it and the car wasn't even out in the sun that long. The previous shade I used in my former car had a much more reflective surface and didn't get nearly as hot. Too bad it didn't fit in the Camry.

This is the sun shade I use.

Works really well and not too hot to the touch on a very hot day.

I want to see that with the headlights up, bet it looks absolutely adorable.
Haha, it's not my car, just reference in how my sun shade looks like.

It looked like this with my Genesis Coupe.
