The film protector would make mounting on the Garmin 3700 series more accurate if the protector tab end is at the end with the microphone aperture. This would mean that initial placement would ensure correct alignment because at present slight misalignment currently starting film attachment to the Garmin at the other end will not clear mic' aperture. Simple modification, reverse protector at the factory.

Having just acquired a new Garmin Nüvi 3790T sat nav which shuttles between two vehicles, I decided it would make sense to protect the unit from accidental scratches by applying a film over the screen. I already use such products on camera back screens so was familiar with the way they work and the need to keep everything dust free.

I applied the Vikuiti film in accordance with the instructions, making sure to do the job in as clean an environment as is possible outside a laboratory. Despite this, I found that several tiny pieces of dust managed to get between the film and the screen, leaving annoying little 'blisters, where the film would not lay flat. These did not go away as the film settled over 48 hours and eventually, I decided to start again with another film. Sadly, I have to report that I still experienced the same problem although I just have the one stubborn spot remaining, near the microphone slit.

The film itself seems excellent although time alone will tell if it repels scratches satisfactorily. My only caveat is that it is VERY sensitive to any impurities coming between the film and the screen surface and, if your experience is anything like mine, you will need a great deal of patience and ultra clean atmosphere in your room to position the film accurately and without blemishes. For that reason, I can only rate it four stars.

Incidentally, I noted the comments from other users that it is difficult to ensure the microphone slit is correctly aligned when starting the application process from the opposite end. I started with the microphone end, carefully peeling away the backing paper using a craft knife blade to get it started. Thereafter, follow the instructions as printed.

Protective Film arrived promptly in envelope, well protected in cardboard sleeve.
Instructions were fairly clear.
Bubbling was inevitable, but, with some gentle and patient application of pressure, disappeared.
It does make one feel slightly safer with protection for an expensive SatNav.
One does wonder why the manufacturers don't include, as Palm did for its Treo devices.

Got this for a Nuvi 3760T. Was very easy to apply with the help of a credit card (my worries about trapping dust or air bubbles were unfounded) and fits so well you wouldn't know that it wasn't factory fitted!
Since this is the first screen protector I've ever bought I can't make any comparisons but as far as I'm concerned it's very good and I would recommend it.

As i have already owned a Sat nav before i purchased my new one,i never got a Screen Protector for my old device.This device(old)has ended up with a couple of Scratch marks around the screen,which took away some of the graphic's in the background and was a little awkward to see places on the screen.This is the reason why i decided to purchase the Vikuiti Sreen Protector for my New device.The product is (as it say's)Premium Quality!!
The Quality once applied onto the Screen,is perfect.No problems either with the Touch Screen nav once applied,as you wouldn't even know that the Protector has been applied.
One thing though,when APPLYING,TAKE YOUR TIME!! as airpockets/bubbles could appear,if not applied CORRECTLY.

I bought this for my new Garmin Nuvi 3760T Europe with Premium Traffic - it fits perfectly and you would never know it is attached.

The instructions for application are reasonably clear; however I do agree with the other reviewer who suggested the protector should be made so as the application process starts at the end where the microphone is - this would make it easier to line up.

Why only 4 stars? Personally, I think it's a bit expensive, but perhaps it will demonstrate its worth by providing all the protection it promises - only time will tell!

When I received the Vikuiti DOC160 Screen Proector in the post (sent from Germany), I found it was defective with 3 small dents. I thought fitting it on the Garmin nuvi would get rid of the dents and bulbles trapped in it but it did not. Hence I was very disappointed. If the Screen Protector was in good condition, it would have been a perfect fit.

What more can I say, GET ONE!! A must for any device. Hard to tell it's on and no more finger prints. Crystal clear, easily the best screen protector for your device. I've tried a few different ones and next to the Zagg ones this comes out clearer. Don't get me wrong, the Zagg ones are good, but they didn't do one for my Garmin device.

I have had generic and/or flimsy screen protectors in the past, but this one is a good thickness, crystal clear and cut to exactly fit the device (which makes aligning it easier too), even including the small hole for the microphone. Reccommended.

By far the best screen protector available.
Clear instructions enable easy application - no bubbles and virtually no interference with touch screen operation.
I will only consider Vikuiti screen protectors from now on!
