Anti-Glare screen for iPad?

Bought a new iPad and added iNavX. Works great, in the shade!
Anybody found a anti-glare screen for the iPad that works well?

Re: Anti-Glare screen for iPad?

Our daughter works for Apple. I JUST talked to her about this subject last night. She says the BEST one is from Power Support (iPhone , iPad , iPod & MacBook Accessories | Power Support USA), and that they go on without bubbles, as well. They aren't cheap, but she says they are the best AND Apple does not sell them in the stores.

I just ordered one for myself. She says the "hot dog" technique works best: Hold the screen like a hot dog, lengthwise, and line it up on the button and the camera dot a the other end, then just drop the sides. I'll tell you how this works out...

Got the Power Support anti-glare screen. Installed it using the enclosed instructions. Very easy.
Took it to the boat today and what a difference. Actually usable in direct sunlight and perfectly fine under the Bimini. Best $32 I ever spent.
