Being out on the water in a boat is one of the most exhilarating and enjoyable activities that you can enjoy. Whether it’s fishing, water skiing, tubing, cruising, on fresh or salt water, nothing beats the fresh air, water spray and the sun.
Today, most boats are fitted with a wide array of instruments with LCD screen displays ranging from fish locators, depth finders, and GPS navigation systems. Some boaters also use their smartphones and laptops on the water too.
Not the Best Environment
As much as you love being out on the waves, your electronic screen devices don’t. Sure, they are made to function anywhere, but being around and exposed to water splashes, direct sunlight and rocking movements where something can come into contact with the screen, is not the best environment.
Salt water can leave streaks, salt residue and over time erode the protective coating on the display. The sun and reflective glare can make looking and using a screen nearly impossible. And in rocky waters or wave riding, things like keys, eating utensils, change and other knick-knacks can get bounced around and potentially come into contact with the screen. Smudges, scratches or even gouges can occur, and that may cause a major loss of visibility or a loss of performance.
What Can You Do?
Keeping in touch by using cell phones and boat mounted GPS systems are necessary to take with you so leaving these things on shore isn’t going to happen. The ideal solution is the installation of the NuShield DayVue anti-reflective screen protector.
How Do They Work?
NuShield screen protectors work to protect your screens in several different ways. First, NuShield DayVue anti-reflective screens reduce the suns glare to make viewing easier. This is very important on the water when you are under full sunlight most of the time. Plus, using polarized sunglasses turns the screen dark, but with a NuShield screen protector installed, you’ll see the screen clearly because the film was made specifically to work in this type of environment.
NuShield screen protectors are tough. They will protect your screen from scratches and flying or dropped objects damaging the actual screen. Remember, it is far easier and less expensive to replace a damaged NuShield screen protector film than a damaged LCD screen. That’s exactly why the U.S. Military uses NuShield screens too. They are rugged, tough and provide visibility using polarized sunglasses which soldiers wear in places like Iraq and Afghanistan.
NuShield screen protectors are also easy to install. Most films come already cut to fit your specific screen. Just place it on your screen, smooth out the bubbles and that’s all there is to it. It is a dry install. No muss with liquids, no fuss, just solid screen protection in any environment.
Peace of Mind
Perhaps the most important aspect of using NuShield screen protectors is peace of mind. Your devices are not cheap, and they deserve to be protected to avoid damage and give you the type of performance you expect, even in situations where glare, moisture or objects that may come into contact with the screen.
