+subsystem Posted February 20, 2006 Share Posted February 20, 2006 I have seen ads for GPS screen protectors on geocaching.com and i would like to add an alternative. I have a Pocket PC and when I got my GPS i decided to cut one of the screen protectors for my Pocket PC down to fit my GPS screen, I clip the sides and top down leaving the bottom edge of the screen protectors backing to hold on too, then I took a stiff peice of paperboard or one of those fake credit cards that you get in the mail and cut it down to the size of my GPS screen, Slowly roll the screen protector off the backing, making sure not to touch the exposed sticky side, stick the edge to the bottom of the screen and take the edge of the card, place it on the bottom off the screen protector that is stuck and slowly push the card up, transfering the screen protector from the backing onto the screen, if done right. there will be no bubbles. if there is use the card to push the bubbles to the edges and tuck the edges down. you can take the screen off and replace it when it gets dirty or scratched and put a new one on. most packs of screen protectors come with 12. get the bigger size screen protectors for the older palms work the best. I have tried the mate finished ones to reduce glare, but they seem to make it harder to see. i prefer the regular clear ones. There are instructions on how to put the screen protectors on a Pocket PC or Palm, you can fallow them, it is the same thing. maybe easier to understand than my crude instructions.. hope this saves you some time and money.
