Precautionary pain (scratched screen)


Making a quick stop at a gas station I didn’t put my Garmin in its protective case to slide it under my seat to keep it out of view. When I pulled it back out it has a short but deep scratch on the screen. Anyone know of some way to make the scratch less visible, like filling in the scratch? Or does the screen have a protective cover that I could buy and replace myself?

Scratched Screen

You can remove scratched Anti-Reflective (AR) coatings by using "Armor Etch" or equivalent from Crafts stores!
GLASS eyeglasses will be destroyed - only for PLASTIC!

I am not sure if Garmin uses plastic or glass.

Thanks for adding (scratched screen)

Adding scratched screen will make it easier when someone else has the same problem. I didn't think that far ahead.

It feels like plastic when you move your fingernail across it but I'm not sure.

I bet someone out there knows.

You can send your unit to

You can send your unit to Garmin for repair for few dollars.

Give them a call or e-mail and you will have your answer.



Maybe a place like Lenscrafters (eyeglass wear) may have something that will help with scratches on glass/plastic.

Touch screens are very

Touch screens are very different from other 'normal' non touch screens, I would be careful and probably send it in as stated above.
