    Just wondering. If it reflects then it has to reflect somehow or there would be no difference in using one or not.

    Darn! I musta put it on upside down:p I just can't get those pesky air bubbles out. I pushed and pushed with my credit card and just couldn't get them all out. Hopefully they will disappear after some time has elapsed.:D

    I know there was one time when I was driving, and the sun was reflecting super brightly off of the screen to my eyes and it was pretty bad. This would not eliminate that, but hopefully reduce the glare a bit. But it is too bad that this screen is not as clear as some screen protectors are. But cannot complain at that price range.

    The owners manual of the 2017 Prius Prime states that you should not use a screen protector. The surface is pretty hard so I imagine it will be difficult to scratch. I've never had a screen protector on the (much smaller) screens of my other Toyota hybrids and I've never managed to scratch those screens. I hope this one is as robust.

    The best screen protector may be find a way to hang an iPad over the screen in a way that you can change the angle to avoid glare. This would also improve entune and provide a working navigation system...:sneaky: I'm not joking either. I may buy an iPad down the road if it still seems like a good idea.(n)
