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.

      Let the cold begin! Though, now I am seeing snow in the forecast for Sat evening and Sunday. Boy, hopefully that misses.

      With the high wind's this week I really dont see much ice forming until at least the weekend.  Looking like I will be planning on hauling the ATV or sled up for the trip between Xmas and New Years again this year.

      I went and looked at a couple smaller 'early ice" lakes in the Cloquet area on sunday afternoon and there is nothing going on, and even tho the temps are gonna get colder, the wind this week will most likely not allow any of them to cap off til at least the weekend. Looking like its gonna be closer to Xmas before I'll be walking out for early ice this year (that's 6" for me LOL)

      I asked my sales guys that question a couple weeks back, when I picked up mine and he told me 4-6 hrs, I'm guessing that can change depending on the temps and stuff

      I am guessing he is using the vexilar edge or whatever the open water graph is called since he said he has fish alarm Personally I never use fish alarm or fish id on electronics   I am no expert either but here are some images that may help you
