Default garmin screen protector

Just got in the mail today a screen protector for my garmin 320C. I have used the thin film protectors for PDA's and this one is a little different. It feels more like a stiff mylar film - that goes on easier that some PDA protectors I have used. It is much easier to get out the bubbles than others - goes on in 5 secs and is completely transparent to the display. They give you 6 for 15 bucks or so..Looks like if you scratch one, you can put another on...also does not lift up on corners like others I've used..

website is www.purplemoo.com

Id be interested to know how it affects your screens viewability in direct sunlight, if possible.

it's completely transparent - hard to tell you have it on unless you look from the side for edge - with the great illumination that garmin color screens have, sunlight will not be a problem..

I have the Garmin 178C which I don't see on their website. Is the screen protector a material you could easily cut to fit a smaller screen. I'd consider ordering for the 188 model and cut to size.

I think you would have no problem cutting it with a razor blade to fit - just find something they sell that's larger - maybe the 2006 film...
