Sonar screen cleaning?
« on: February 28, 2011, 08:12:09 PM »

What do you use to clean the screens on your sonar units?

Mine has gotten really bad with water spots & finger prints and I cannot find my cleaner or remember the brand name. It came in a small pump spray bottle & came with a small microfiber cloth.

There was a great tip in the tips section about this.  It mentioned vinegar and other things.  It sounded great. Jim

Windex multi-purpose with vinegar.  I don't have it in front of me, it is out in the boat!  I also used a water/vinegar mix.  And get a micro-fiber towel to clean it with.

Windex Multi-Surface with Vinegar is what Humminbird recommends you can get a big bottle for a couple bucks at Big Box Store. It won't damage protective anti-glare coatings on lens.

I just use regular unscented wet wipes/baby wipes followed by drying with a regular tissue. I just did mine yesterday and it's looking good.

A new company (Wave Away) markets a screen cleaner.  Best screen cleaner I've used.

I have also heard the wave away is great but I also use a wet wipe and it works great, and cleans the hands at the same time.

On a show of the bass pros a few months ago, they used plain vinegar to remove the calcium water spots. He soked a towel in vinegar and then just eld it on the screen in more of a dabbing motion so as not to scratch the screen with the calcium. He pre cleaned the screen of dust before but I can't remeber what he used for that, I think it was a regular cleaner

This was what I wass thinking of.  I thought i saw it on UB, but I think you're correct Pro Reel.  The important thing I came away with was to just dab at the screen at first , because tha calcium hard water spots are capable of scratching the screen.

+1 on the windex with vinager...it takes a couple of times but it gets it clean.
i started using vinager and water to wipe the boat down after fishing and it shines like new. our lake is all limestone so the spots can get pretty bad.

 ~cf Go to www.invisashield.com get a cover for the screen and then you can clean it with sandpaper if you want and it will be clear as if nothing is there ~c~

   Proreel and bassindude I think that was Stacey King that did the screen cleaning thing you saw. His formula was two drops of regular dish soap in a two ounce spray bottle then fill with vinegar and yes dabbing was also recomended.
