Screen Protector's

 

Does anyone have an idea what type of screen protector is best for a widescreen 4x3 I think they are? I bought one before and it did not cover the whole thing the way I thought it would.

ZAGG

AFAIK, ZAGG offers full-body coverage for around $30.

tried and gave up

I tried a few different types on my 660, but had problems with glare, bubbles, that kind of thing.

Gave up and just keep the screen clean, cleaning it as needed the same way and with the same materials I'd use for my eyeglasses or LCDs at home or on my laptop -- I use a spray cleaner called "Ultra Clarity" and a microfiber cloth.

Recently there was another thread discussing IClean Screen Cleaner. This may be a stupid question but which is better the plastic screen protector or the IClean. I am not worried about scratches b/c I have a case.

Thank You

I went to Radio Shack it

I went to Radio Shack it cost me about $9.00 for a pack, you just have to cut it to fit. Its been on my 660 for about a year now with no problem at all. They have two kinds. The more expensive ones put out to much of a glare and are a pain to put on without bubbles, the cheaper ones have NO glare and where ez to install. the cheaper ones came in a green package and called Universal Screen Protectors. I now use them on my 885T.

Don't Think I Need One

I have not felt like I need one for my GO 930. It is probably waaaay too late for my trusty GPSmap 60CS. grin

zagg

the ones who tried Zagg... are you satisfied? do you recommend it?

+1 on that for me too. I

+1 on that for me too. I have found that generally, the screen protectors cause more problems than they solve. I guess if I used a stylus for touch screen use I might think differently.

Yup

I bought one from Zagg for my Honda Navi screen, which is larger than any portable screen. Came in a nifty kit with squeege and a spray liquid, which made it very easy to apply. Went on easily, and squeege removed all the air bubbles. Works great. Only problem I've seen thus far is that polorized sun glasses tend to turn the screen a bit darker, but it is still readable.

screen protector

i should've got one. u never know what happens in the glove. mine got scratched.

Good to have

Screen Protectors save the screens from scratches and also help prevent the screen from breaking or cracking when the GPS is dropped or hit with an object.

What is the best screen

What is the best screen layer option for reducing glare?

.

i HATE zagg's return/lifetime policy bs. they make it so difficult for you so you end up buying a new one. its such a hassle to go through shipping n all that.

I do not know if you guys have heard of boxwave protectors.

I have used them on my iPod Touch, Instinct Phone, now on my Palm Pre and most recently order the one for the Garmin 4.3 size.

They have several protectors, buy my favorite is the Crystal Touch. It installs dry, (no wet mess), looks and feels like glass! No air bubbles! IT IS UNBELIEVABLE! Everyone I have recommended agrees with me, these are the best screen protectors ever!

At $12.95 may seem expensive, but once you try them, you will be sold!

One last thing... no, I do not work for them! I am just extremely satisfied with their product!

Have the Zagg protector on my Zumo and my Nikon camera and really like them. A bit pricey, but very good quality.

I use these on my iQue3600. They DO protect well, but scratch a bit when writing w/ the stylus. If I simply used my fingers to push "buttons" on a touch screen, this would also be the product of choice.

At a mall near you …… lol

This is so popular now for phones, ipod’s, GPS units and PDA’s.
At my local mall there is a kiosk that does it for you for a charge.

Boxwave protectrs

Thanks for the comment. I never use a stylus with my Crystal Touch protectors and never had a problem with them. But that is the beauty of them, they look great and they protect, after 1 or 2 years, you can always get a new one and your unit will be unblemished!

Didn't care for the Zagg

I use a film that I started using to protect my iPhone, Power Support's Anti Glare screen protector available at an Apple Store or at www.powersupportusa.com I bought one made for a small laptop & had enough to cover two 765t's, my kid's Palm Pilot & have enough left over to replace them all when they wear out.

The Anti Glare film is it's thick, has a matte/anti glare finish, holds well but leaves no residue when removed, is extremely durable (had the same piece on my iPhone for over a year & still looks new), it's easy to apply without getting any air bubbles & the best part is that it DOESN'T SHOW ANY FINGERPRINTS.

I recently tried the Zagg Invisible Sheild but didn't like it as much as it's soft & rubbery, almost sticky.

I bought an anti-glare protector for my Magellan. It doesn't really help reduce glare a lot. I would recommend looking at other types of products to reduce glare.

Fellowes PDA scrren protectors

I have had good luck with these as well

if you like the fellowes...

you will love the boxwave crystal touch. try them.

Boswave

screen protectors

I have seen on ebay some of those 99c screen protectors for phones and mp3 players. do those work or are they too thick so touching the screen doesn't work? i have a nuvi 255w.

Thanks

Only One to Buy, Only one worth buying.

I have been using protectors for years. Belkin, HP, Palm and others. Then I tried the Invisible Shield from Zagg. Nothing even comes close, especially since they made the protector a bit thinner. Xlnt product. Watch the videos. They are true.

This thing works. Clean the screen well. Spray this watery solution on the protector and your hands, wipe the excess off with the included squeegie, and you are done. Screen protector only is around $12. Perfect.

screen protector

i have used one for three plus years on my 660. no problems and highly recommend youo use one

+1 for Zagg

I'm currently using the Zagg invisible shield and can safely say that its betting than nothing, and it works great too.

Screen Protectors

Over the past ten or so years I have been buying screen protectors from the big boys, usually paying anywhere from $15-20.00 per protector. A while back I was in Dollar Tree and, lo and behold, they have these things for $1.00 for two. They sell everything from the I-Pad size down to I-Phone size. Sometimes you have to cut them down to size but a dollar is a whole lot better than $15. I have the 3590 and the Galaxy phone size works for me. It doesn't completely cover the entire screen but it does cover the touch portion of the screen and that's what I'm concerned with. I no longer have to worry about fingerprints since the protector doesn't show prints as readily as the screen itself does. If you want to save money, this may be the way to do it.
