    Clean touch screen?

    All joking aside, how do you keep the screen clean?
    Has anyone tried Rain-X, or other products to keep it clean(er)? Or even some window-tint film? I must have greasy fingers, every finger-print shows up.
    It looks horrible, and stopping to clean it tends to leave it smeary unless I make a thorough job of it. Not one of life's biggest problems, but it is driving me nuts!

    I use the little micro fiber cloth that came with the car. Works perfect. I keep it tucked in the recessed area for the console latch.

    Endust for Electronics- it's anti-static, ammonia and alcohol free.
    Use micro fiber cloth.. spray on cloth and wipe.

    Great suggestion - tell me more!
    Is this just a stylus from small hand-held devices, or something more sophisticated?

    I just put on an anti smudge film that is made for an IPAD. I'll let you know how it works.

    I keep one of those micro cloths in the center counsel. It cleans and does not smear the fingerprints. Used it on my last vehicle as well. They are cheap and available at Costco.

    Now that's a real good suggestion! I'll try my wife's Kindle stylus.

    I haven't heard from you, so I thought i would take a gamble and bought a $1 iPad Matte film.
    Looks like the answer! Finger prints are much reduced, and the matte finish makes everything much clearer with no reflections.
    Touch sensitivity is slightly reduced, but not too bad.
    Best advice, thanks.

    First and second generation Kindle screen protectors work too, they fit perfect no trimming needed.
