Hey, i have had my h2oc gps for about a year now and it has a scratch the size of a penny-nickel the the front screen. It is somewhat readable but can be a nuisance when the backlight isn't on. Could the screen ultimately be replaced or am i stuck with a scratch on the screen? Does anyone has any thoughts on what to do?

Talk to Lowrance and see what they recommend. I had some scratches on one of my Lowrance units in my boat and they recommended a plastic polish that really took care of the problem. The screen on your h2oc is a different screen though so I wouldn't use the plastic polish on it unless they tell you too.

I ended up putting one of the stick on screen covers that people use to cover PDA screens to help minimize the scratching as the screen seems to be easily scratched. It's worked well so far.

mjr - grab some Maguire's PlastX cleaner/polish at Fleet Farm or any auto parts place. Spread some on and rub lightly and consistently with a soft, clean rag. Took a ton of scratches out of my H2Oc and made the finish good as new last fall. Also works well on CDs/DVDs. Best $5 I've spent in a while.

I got my screen protector online from what used to be called shieldzone. It is now called Zagg. About 9 bucks with free lifetime replacement IF it ever gets scratched. I have had mine on for about a year with no problems yet. I am happy with it.

Meguires is also what I used, although like I said in my previous post that was with a different screen than is on the H2O.

Just go to Target or Walmart and buy the protectors for the Nintendo Gameboy ;\)

I got mine at Best Buy, but as dtro said they can be found pretty much anywhere that sells electronics.

If you want to protect the whole unit, a neoprean case that was designed for the H2Os - comes with clear window for the screen/buttons and belt clip. Works pretty good, but it adds a little bulk and harder to press the on/off/light button. But at least if I drop it, it is less likely to get damaged.

I got mine from Reeds, think I paid $15-30.

I picked up a Sony PSP protector today at Target for 9.99 (2). I will let you know how they fit.

      You were in the right area, maybe just the wrong time.  I went out late this afternoon to see if the house my Dad has been using came through the "flood" OK and decided to drop a line when I was there. When I first dropped the hook down the hole a walleye screamed up off the bottom and slammed it 5 feet off the bottom. So out of curiosity I just sat there and jigged 4 to 5 feet off the bottom and they kept coming up and slamming it. They never touched the dead stick that was set 1 foot off the bottom.  All I can think of is that with the snow cover gone they could really see something up against the sunlight. I hadn't seen the walleyes that aggressive all winter.  maybe it was because I was fishing in a hole about 20 inches wide due to the water running down it.   No I don't think so cuz I have a big roll of duct tape and a bunch of white sheets. I'll wrap me, the Jeep and the dog in white sheets. We'll be just like ghosts.  OOPS, just remembered that the snow is all gone. I really think that after all the years we each could stick a pin in a lake  map guessing where the other one would be and we would each be within 1/4 mile. From his description fishing tech was right on the eastern edge of your favorite area.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.
