Scratch Remover???

4 posts in this topic

Has anyone seen or used a product that works to remove scratches from your GPS screen? I've seen a couple just searching on the internet, but most with mixed reviews. Just wondering if anything actually works.

Try Meguiars PlastX polish. Worked perfectly on my H2Oc and a dozen CDs/DVDs that needed help. Got it at Fleet Farm, I think, but should be available in most automotive shops.

If the scratches are not too deep, what I did may work for you. This may sound stupid, but toothpaste worked for me. My GPS had some pretty obvious/irritating scratches in the screen. (due to my own carelessness) I had resigned myself to the fact I was going to have to send it in to be repaired. A friend of mine told me he heard of someone else that had success using it, so I figured what do I have to lose? I must say it took a good deal of time, but with gentle rubbing with a soft damp cloth and renewing the paste as it dried out I was able to bring mine back to an acceptable appearance. No, it isn't perfect, but it is only visible at just the right (or should I say wrong) angles under just the right/wrong lighting. After I finished I put some Rain-X on and polished the screen and it looks good enough now to not bother me anymore.

I applied a "screen protector" to mine. You can buy those off the internet. Works great! No scratches on my H2O and it's 2 years old.

      As far as I know walleyes are native to almost every lake that they are found in up north. Cliff

      How do you fish for the cats on open water?

      Interesting point, BT.  I think our houses caught one perch this year, and I can't say that I knowingly marked one small one (except for when I was down in the bays on the south side).  I have no doubt that they are still in the lake, but I just ain't seeing any.

      Are walleyes even native to vermilion? Pretty much every lake in northeast Minnesota had walleyes introduced to them in the last 50 to 100 years. If walleyes weren't native to vermilion, saugers certainly wouldn't have been native either. Sauger numbers seem to shrink the farther east each lake gets from Rainy Lake.
