Have any of you applied a protective film to the screen on your bike? Please let me know what you think of the result of you have, and what brand you used.

 

Thank you.

I purchased protective film from Wunderlich USA for the instrument panel and the NAV6 GPS on my 16 R1200RS. Both do a good job and stop some of the glare I had on the instrument  panel. Overall I am pleased with this film.

Thank you for the help. Went to Speedo Angels and bought the product advertised by Wunderlich for a little over half.

 

Thanks again.

Ditto on the Speedo Angels product. Have them on my R1250RT and on my wife's F800GT.

 

I too had bought it from Wunderlich not realizing they were reselling someone else's product for a ridiculous markup.

041100s....I see Speedo offers this protector in plastic and something they call nano glass.  Im not worried too much about protections but would like the benefit of anti-glare which they say is only on their plastic version.  Do you recall which one you installed?

To Skywagon, sorry just got back to this. I installed the anti-glare on both the instrument panel and the NAV6. It does a good job and I am able to see the instrument panel better in sunlight. My NAV6 is mounted higher and at an angle so glare was not a big problem but i do see an improvement.

I've not found a need for any protective film. It doesn't seem to scratch at all.

Andy... I agree not a scratch issue, but the glare with Texas sun makes it pretty unusable.  Going to wait and see if  Del above gets his.

That's weird. The NAV5 used to have reflection issues and difficulty to read the display in bright sunshine, but the NAV6 seems to have resolved that (for me).

I received and installed mine. It went on easily, though I practiced a few times before removing the backing and attaching. I can barely tell the difference after installing, and even bright sun doesn't cause any issues. 

 

I installed mine because of concern that I might absent mindedly were some grit of the screen and scratch it. Now if I do scratch the film, and it becomes noticable enough, I can just replace it.
