Scratch Remover???

Question

waxworm

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.

      Hockey tape for me.  Bought a roll 10 years ago and probably have another 10 years left in it, unless I go on a shopping spree for rods/reels!

      Finally got out there Saturday after wanting to for almost 10 years! After reading all the pointers on here and looking at maps we gave it a try. Ended up catching around 15 between the 2 of us in about 4 hrs biggest being about 6lbs. Had a blast and will definitely do it again!  Oh and you're not kidding about a lite bite I think only one actually pulled the bobber  under!

      I was on Turtle Lake.  I've always found the clarity good there although I also haven't seen a boatload of pike.  Centerville was awful a couple of weeks ago as was Peltier although they both can change in a few weeks.  Sorry I didn't reply sooner but I was up north seeing almost 50 fish in two days on a small lake west of Bemidji.  Nice clear water there and pike from 10 to 38 inches long.

      Just fished Potato for the first time this winter. Found walleyes in 15 feet of water off the mid lake humps during the day/late afternoon. Had the camera down and saw plenty of eyes but couldn't get them to bite. Was wondering if this lake is more of a night bite.

      Any clue how it started? Really a bummer. Just remembering some of the fun times there.

      Gents, Anyone been to OT lately that could comment on ease of ice travel. Snow depth, drifts and ice.  Would traveling nearly anywhere be acceptable with exception to rivers/creeks?
