Protecting the touch screen on the RNS 310, RCD 510 and RNS 510 headunits

Adding a screen protector to protect the touch screen on the RNS 310, RCD 510 and RNS 510 from scratches, chemicals and general wear and tear is easily performed.

Size of screen (can also be fitted to non touch screen models as well):

  • RNS 310 – please email me the size of the screen height and width
  • RCD 510 – please email me the size of the screen height and width
  • RNS 510 – 79mm x 145mm (order size 78mm x 144mm and delivered size is 76mm x 142mm)

I order most screen protectors through Clarivue, the quality of the product is excellent and delivery is prompt.

To order the custom sizes go to their custom ordering page.

Enter the order size, the price of USD$19.99, a quantity of 2 and enter the discount code on the next page reducing the price to USD$17.99.

Clarivue 10% discount code (valid until 31st of July 2009): 107099745

If you have any questions or problems with the ordering process you have to discuss with Clarivue as I am only a customer.

Fitting the screen is somewhat difficult because of the amount of dust in the car, I find wetting the screen carefully makes the installation easier and you will end up with no bubbles or dust. The protectors can be removed, cleaned and reused.

    HI, MY NAME IS ANTONIS FROM THESSALONIKI GREECE. I HAVE 2 QUENTIONS FOR YOU. FIRST, CAN YOU SEND THIS TO GREECE?
    AND THE SECOND, IF YOU OK FOR THE PLACE TO SEND, I HAVE THE VW GOLF VI, AND THE SCREEN RCD510, YOU NEED THE DIMENSIONS OR NOT?

    • Maverick

      They will send them anywhere in the world at no additional cost. And you have to send the screen dimensions (minus 1-2 mm) to them when you order (they will take off another 2 mm automatically).

    Hi, Did you get the ultra clear or the anti-glare protectors?

    • Maverick

      I didn’t specify so they send out the ultra clear ones standard. Not sure how well the anti glare one would go as the screen is already pretty good.

  • MKVIowner

    My only concern is will the ultra-clear protectors produce glare in the sunlight? i don’t want to compromise the screen quality with the anti-glare protectors.

  • spiff

    why do you have to send them dimensions that are minus 1-2mm?
    and, why do they take off another 2mm?

    i have the rns510. if the dimensions are as above – 79mm x 145mm – shouldn’t i order something that size?
    or, if they take off 2mm, shouldn’t i be ordering 81mm x 147mm?

    thanks.

      The screen size (visible) is 79 x 145. The order size is 78 x 144 and the delivered size is 76 x 142. It clearly states on the order page that they remove 2mm from your supplied screen size. If you ordered one that was the same size as the screen how would you remove it without having to use a knife or similar to lift it from the screen? You have to leave a border around the outside to allow positioning of the protector and easy removal. Your finger cannot touch that area that is exposed around the outside (1.5mm all around) and there are no problems with leaving this gap visible as the purpose is to protect against wear and tear along with accidental scratches.

    I ordered one of these from Clarivue after finding this posting (thanks Maverick) and the delivery to Melbourne was only a few days, the product was simple to apply, non glare, is utterly invisible, doesn’t affect the touch screen response, is cut perfectly to size and is very easy to clean with a microfibre cloth. All up $20 very well spent.

  • […] the dash so maintenance is minimal and the same as you would do for a non touch screen. I have a screen protector on my RNS 510 which reduces the brightness of the screen by a fraction and changes the properties […]

    Are there anyone that has the size for RNS 310 in [mm]???

  • Erik

    I want order a custom fit screen protector, but the size for the RNS 310 can not be ordered. It goes up to 95mm.
    The size I want is 10.8 x 6.6 mm.
    Is there another page on the website where I can order this exact size?

  • Erik

    The exact size is, according to my friend the given size is too small, 10.9 mm x 6.6 mm.
    Are the screen protectors with rounded edges ? Because I need the nicely rouded edges

  • Erik

    I wanted to order the screen protector for the RNS 310, but they want to charge me an outragous $40 for 1 protector only. This really is insane. This is a bad, bad company for screenprotectors for your RNS 310.

  • Erik

    They changed the layout now, it is $ 20 for 1 protector.

  • Ron

    Buy a Ipad screen protector for $15 You can cut it up and get three out of it
