Screen protectors are very useful, and while protecting your screen from scratches, they also make the screen a little easier to see in bright sunlight but there has been at least one instance of the touch screen on the Montana breaking when a screen protector, in this case the ZAGG version, was removed incorrectly. Some instructions suggest removing the protector by pulling straight up at a right angle to the screen, but DO NOT PULL STRAIGHT UP ON A MONTANA.

If you're careful, and pull forward, in the direction of removal, you should be ok.

The Garmin brand protectors which are included with the Rugged Mount are less likely to cause problems but exercise caution anyway. Getting Garmin to cover the damaged touch screen is possible, but not necessarily something they feel obligated to do.

If you want to discuss the Montana, go to the humungous thread called Laying Down Tracks/New Garmin Montana.

Please do not reply in this thread...
