Hightower, my 178c, which is only 1.5 years old looks pretty much the same. I can't really get it clean or smear free.

Partof the problem may have been wiping the screen when it had salt on it. But it does make it look tatty, and can make it hard to read too.

My new 498 looks pristine (of course! its new!) but hope it stays like that.

I'm going to send an email and picture to Garmin an let them know. If the screen is glass then wiping it with Acitone might clean the rest of the coating off, however I'm not willing to do that till I've spoken to Garmin first.
