I may try one of these peel and stick Vikuiti products from 3M designed for LCDs. Gets good reviews from the nerd crowd, and is a fraction of what Garmin quoted me. Worth a shot perhaps.

I was planning to put screen protectors on my Garmin 3005's when I got them - wish I had now.

I've just ordered two invisible shields from www.zagg.com - hopefully it will stop them getting any worse.

Those are good ideas .. so long as you can get them applied without any bubbles,... ? and the extra layer doesnt change the refracted light, thereby changing the anti glare effect ? could be worth a shot

The Zagg stuff is really easy to apply without bubbles - it comes with a water based spray you wet the plastic with before applying. IMHO out of all the screen protectors i've tried they are the best.

Not sure about the antiglare effect though or how robust they will be in the marine environment.

Will post results once i've tried them

Just applied one - screen looks like new, all the marks from the salt are hidden, antiglare doesn't appear to have been effected.

Really easy to apply too.

Won't get to try it on the boat for a few weeks though.

There doesn't seem to be any sheets of the stuff for sale on their website, just brand specific kits.

What and where did you get yours DJL?

Andy - they sell a kit for the Garmin GPSMAP 3005C's that I have. If they don't have your device listed they apparently will make a kit for you.

You might be able to get them to send you a sheet - not sure how easy it would be to cut though.

Mine turned up this morning 21.95 inc express delivery for 8" screen cover

They have an agent in Manchester "Envious Ltd"

Box has a screen cover, bottle of liquid and an installation squeegee (bit of rubber)

Instructions
http://www.zagg.com/company/applicat...structions.php

I'll see how I get on with it later

They do kits for laptops - I am sure a sharp scalpel would do the trick.
