Nav screen fix

So i had a pretty nasty nav screen and it was really bugging me.

Ended up ordering the film and it fit PERFECTLY.

Took me 5 minutes to do...looks brand new

Did you only put film on and it fixed it? Mine looks like picture 1, what film did you get? I may have to do this myself.

Hey buddy!

Yup ... literally 5 minutes of work and $30 later you have a screen that looks better than new.

All i did was clean it, and used scotch tape to make sure any little particles are off the screen then i applied it.

Its a product from NUSHIELD and it fit exactly as advertised (you can pick your x3 and year and it will come as you need it)

Make sure you get the DayVue one.


Keep me posted!

Looks good! But how does a Nav screen get that bad? Mine isnt touch enabled.

I did the same thing after seeing this and while it made it look a bit better I can still see the imperfections of the screen that were there before.

Yea the screen is pretty sensitive to hard surfaces, I left my phone sideways against the screen sometimes for googlemaps or to watch videos and then noticed it leaves scratches on the screen when the phone moves around a bit in curves etc.

It definately doesn't make the screen perfect, but it improved it by about 80-90 percent from what it was before.

Also i bought the car like this i didn't personally make the scratches.
