    I never touch my screen. Just use the joystick.

    That’s as helpful as suggesting someone use search tabs. Thanks for your workaround solution.

    I have no idea if it would work but first thing that comes to me is a computer touch screen protector. They make them for laptops that have touch screens so should be big enough to trim for the connext screen I'd think. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Are you thinking like the previous model connext that has the rubber "gasket" type cover?

    You can try reaching out to Will over @JetBoatPilot he might be working on one, or can chime in here on a recommendation.

    On a side note, how do you like the new screens with the Chart plotter and all the upgrades?

    Oh I guess I assumed you meant a screen protector like on a phone screen, but if you mean a screen "cover" ignore my post. :)

    Sorry man, I’m at work and a little cranky. Plus I don’t really care for touch screens. Carry on and I hope you find what you’re looking for. Are the newest screens smooth and glassy? My connext is more of a matte finish to the screen so I’m not sure how a screen protector would adhere.
