BMW X6 Satnav screen

Hi guys, I’ve had a request to clean up the edges of a Sat Nav screen on a BMW X6.

My initial thoughts are that I’ll need something alcohol based but wanted to be sure Incase I cause damage.

Any pointers?

Doubt that will clean up whatever has been used previously looks to have taken the top coat off

I don’t think that will cleanup. Someone used something abrasive on that screen.

It looks like the anti-glare coating has worn/rubbed off.

Definitely the anti-glare screen. It looks like someone has attacked it already, leaving that. I would just remove the rest of the coating at the edges. Trial and error with what will work. Try some furniture polish first as it's so mild.

I had that exact issue on the wife’s X6.

AF Crystal glass cleaner plus a Microfibre and lots of rubbing cleared it all off !

Had no issues since either
