E70 Nav - screen protector

Anyone recommend a screen protector for the Nav screen on E70 ?

Someone has taken some strong polish to be secondhand E70 - removed the anti-glare coating and leaving it looking crappie when 'off'.

Any recommendations appreciated..

Bought One...

I bought one from Lexerd last year... $19.95
It works great and looks just like the original coating.

Protector

Cool - I've fired them an email asking if they do the full professional size screen - the image on Amazon looks like the standard screen.

Cheers

I have the Professional Size

FYI, I have the professional size 8.5" system in my X, so I'm certain that they do make them.

You can still install one...

My screen was scratched, actually the protective coating was worn off at the botom along the plastic molding. I used rubbing alcohol and a clean rag to remove the rest of the factory coating. Then I installed one of these screen protectors, and now it looks like new and won't show sctratches/coating flaws again.

Good Luck.

I just got one of these as well and it looks great. I do notice a bit more glare with the screen protector but it isn't too bad.

OK that's an important one.. My screen is pretty glare-free as is.
Not in ALL conditions, but most of them (more so than the Lexus was).

I have a fairly nasty scratch on my screen now but unless the light is shining directly on it, I can't see it. And even then I can't see it unless the display is on - the scratch is only really noticeable in direct light, with the display off.

I know a lot of folks have dissed the NAV but personally.. I LOVE my Professional NAV. Best I've ever had.

The routing can be weird, yes. But NAV routing is ALWAYS weird.
If it's .001 miles shorter, it may pick a weird route, etc.

The display is beautiful, it's large (and the right aspect ratio) and readable in all conditions. Even with a big nasty scratch that I can't see.

I had a scratch on my E90 Nav screen and removed it with polywatch.
Looks like new.
