Cleaning Sat Nav screens

Can anyone recommend a product or a wipe of some kind for cleaning the built in sat-nav screens?

I wouldn't use anything but a damp cloth

Some of these screens have anti glare coatings which are removed and look hideous if a glass cleaner or similiar product is used.

Is yours a touch screen, if not, just a camera lens blower and camera lens brush is all I use

Yes it's a touch screen and it gets finger marks mainly from selecting albums and different tracks more so than the sat-nav.

Autoglym Fast Glass. Spray a small amount on a cloth and wipe over. Autoglym recommend it for use on these screens. Then if needed you can do your windows

OK so my suggestion is not the best offer but be careful if you use an mf cloth as I took the coating off part on my screen on an older Audi from wiping too hard

You can buy dedicated LDC screen cleaners for use on computer monitors

I use it on my touchscreen and works great with the included paper towel things

No idea on what it contains but hasn't caused any damage yet
