Question Nav Screen...one more time

Ok guys, I know this has been a topic before, but I had to try it again. I've noticed a lot of new faces around here, so I thought I would give them a shot at this burning issue. Has anyone found a product besides eyeglass cleaner or compressed air to clean their nav screen? These screens seem to attract a lot of dust. I have very minor scratches on mine so I want to be careful so I don't add more. I think I am going to try a product that is used to clean "Big Screen" TV's. C'mon guys, there are far too many intelligent minds on this forum to not have a real solution to this problem. I think I read somewhere about someone trying a light coat of plastic polish...whatcha think....Phil

dood....why overcomplicate things. A clean MicroFiber Cloth and very light mist of water.

There's dust everywhere....you're just noticing it more on that area. Similar to black car vs. white + pollen ;-)

YEP. Works like a charm. I keep one right in the drivers side door pocket. Costco sells them yellow microfibre things by the bag.
