navigation screen protector

I find the navi screen very susceptible to scratches. Has anyone found a screen protector for their new F10?

it's not a touch screen so the only way you would scratch it is by using old rags and some improper cleaner. Use a quality microfiber towel and some plexus and don't touch the screen otherwise.

Or clean it with Mequiars Interior Detailer. Totally safe for GPS screens and guages. No residue at all. I was impressed with how well it cleaned and ease of use.

Clear plastic cleaner, best for Nav screens

Megs still leaves a residue that you can only see when the sun hits the screen in a certain way, like when the sunroof is open

There are both generic size screen protectors and pre-cut for 10.2" screens.
Take a look at this seller on Ebay.
Screen protector made in US.

I never touch my screen, did you scratch it through improper cleaning? I only use a slightly dampened cotton towel once in a while. Never wipe it dry and don't use a paper-based product.
