    Love the new 4Runner, hate the fingerprints on the touch screen. Anybody using a screen protector to keep the prints off of the screen? Any advice? I carry a microfiber, but getting sick of cleaning the screen every day. I know it's a personal thing, but OCD rules my life sometimes.

    Thanks.

    I still get fingerprints, especially when my fingers are not clean. But nothing like before.

    screen protech dot com.. for some odd reson the link does not work when I added it..

    solves the fingerprints, also I like that it goes all around, even around the buttons to give your navi screen full coverage..

    comes in a pakcage deal 1 nav1 and 1 dash gauge screen protector which does take a lot more time and effort to apply.. but the navi screen is a breeze..

    I did go with the Amazon one but still got the fingerprints then changed to screen protech..

    I don't seem to have that problem. I rarely have to clean my screen, but when I do, I use Turtle Wax Dash & Glass. Even says; safe on tech screens. Maybe my fingers are just extra dry. I cuss trying to open the plastic bags at the grocery store.

    never thought about the turtle wax, that might help also. Appreciate all the replies.

    You could sear your fingertips on a griddle and permanently remove your fingerprints.

    I don’t touch my screen. Honestly I can’t remember the last time I used the stereo. Side note, I was thrilled when I finally discovered how to turn the screen off in the setup page. This helped my driving comfort immensely when driving at night.
