Default Garmin 178 coating

Does anyone know if the 178C has the coating and fogging issues the 2110C had? I sent my 2110C back 2X for screen replacment due to fogging and the coating coming off. I just bought a used BW which has a 178C and I'm wondering what I'm in store for?

I had a 178C and the coating did come off in patches. I used Windex with ammonia and took it ALL off. Then applied a Nav Protector screen cover and it was fine from then on. I currently have a 2210 on my new boat and put a Nav Protector on it right out of the box.
