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.

      The Rum has been dropping in flow and water level since the 20th from St Francis down if that helps

      Fishing awful this morning. Launched at 8:30. By 12:30 had exactly two small pike. Finally found some walleyes and ended up with 22 fish - NO BASS! bummer. Water cold - only 61-64 degrees. Weather man blew it again. Walleyes in about 20 FOW, best lure Lunker City Fin-S-Fish.   New camera worked well but had troubles with new sonar/GPS. Think I got it fixed once home.   Here is today's video: June 26 video

      We took our annual trip to Rainy Lake in mid-June staying at Taylor's Cove along Bear's Pass.  My dad started going there back in the late 70's and now brings me and my son.  Every year provides great memories, new and old.  Anyhow, fishing was very good, particularly for bass and walleye. Water temps ranged from 62-72 degrees.  Most days were about 75 degrees, overcast and breezy.  Our biggest smallmouth was 22" and biggest walleye was 30".  In fact we boated ten walleye 25" or larger.  We caught pike up to 37".  We found walleyes in weedy bays around 6-10' deep.  Bass were in 5-8'.  Most of the fish were spitting up perch so I imagine that's what kept them shallow.  A few pics to share.  Wish I could be there more often...

      You can't find one? How much do they cost? Try Cabela's for starters.All the I-Pilot and I-Pilot Link models have Spot-lock.   http://www.cabelas.com/browse.cmd?categoryId=734095080&CQ_search=terrova   https://www.minnkotamotors.com/Trolling-Motors/Freshwater-Bow-Mount/New-Terrova/

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.
