cleaning screen on Lawrance Mark 5.

How do you clean the screen on the color Mark 5? Mine always has water spots and looks like a rainbow. I've tried just a wet paper towel. I heard that you don't want to use windex type cleaners. I just can't get it cleaned. When I do finally get it cleaned, is there a screen protector I can put on it like cell phones have?

vinager and water works great, i have also had good luck with a screen cleaner product cabelas sells it is endorsed by a prof. fisherman but i can not remember his name. i keep the bottle and the nice soft rag it comes with in the boat and wipe clean as needed.

I use Sparkle but for water spots the vinegar mixture should work nicely. I carry a small spray bottle in the boat plus the microfiber towel that came with the Lowrance. I think that works way better than paper towel and worried that a wood based material like paper towel could scratch the screen.
I'm not sure a stick on after market screen protector would help that much. Just best to wipe it down more frequently and don't touch the screen with greasy fingers.

A few yours ago I read this on walleye central and I have been doing it since and it works great. In a small spray bottle I mix up 50% water with 50% Isopropyl Alcohol 99% by volume.http://www.amazon.com/Swan-Isopropyl-Alcohol-99-Pint/dp/B001B5JT8C/ref=pd_sim_bt_2?ie=UTF8&refRID=1XBE8N4QXED1SBSE4EHN
