    Hey guys, thought I would share what I found on Amazon. Finally, a tempered glass screen protector for those easily scratched 2020+ displays. I tried one of the custom films some are using and could not get the bubbles out of it, I just got this tempered protector in and it fit perfectly and actually makes the display look sharper. I couldn't find where someone has posted this already, hopefully this isn't a duplicate thread!

    Nice find. I have have one made for a fire pad and works fine but has a whole for a speaker or something.
    Does this one go on easy?
    Also here's a running thread if you wanted to post for others to find

    Yes it went on very easily, makes it easier too if you just line it up against the top bezel that is notched.

    I installed the Wonderfulhz one linked in the first post a couple hours ago. It seems fine. I haven't driven around with it yet, but it seems fine. Touch controls still work okay. It also came with a little alcohol pad, a little cloth, and some weird rectangular thing that I have no idea what it's for. I tossed the cloth and the rectangular thing in the glasses holder in case I need them.

    If I have any problems, I'll be back to complain. I'm not expecting any problems, though. It went on much like my cell phone and Nintendo Switch tempered glass screen protectors. I followed e_alvarez91's advice about the top bezel, too. It was a little awkward to apply the screen protector in the wide orientation, but it was fine.

    Oh yeah, it's definitely for the 8 inch display. Are there actually any 2020 4runners with the smaller screen/no navigation out there? Every one I saw in the lot at my dealership had the 8 inch screen.

    Glad it worked out for you! Yes, I believe all 2020+ have the 8" display.

    Thanks for the tip :) And I just went to the Toyota specs page for the 4runner. Yeah, it's 8 inches all around. For some reason I though there was 6.1 inches being used on the ones without GPS on the 2020s.

    It's funny. I went through all the trouble to get a screen protector for my 4Runner, and I don't think I've even touched the screen for a whole month :laugh:

    Thanks! Just ordered one. Like you, I tried the other kind and could not get the bubbles out.

    Wish I had known about this before I noticed all the surface scratches when the sun hits it.

    I read about this issue before I got the pro. Took this ammo to the dealer and sure as heck, the only truck (I wanted) has a scratched screen. Told them I wanted a new radio or I walk. They took me out to the lot and had me look at a screen in a nightshade. It was flawless so they did a swap right on the spot & let me watch in the shop. My mistake? I didn't look close before I drove it home that day. Morons scratched it when they did the swap:annoyed:
