Is the screen on your cycle-computer or GPS showing its age? If you answered yes, a clearer display is as close as your local hardware or auto parts store.
What you’ll need:
- A microfiber cloth or applicator ($ varies)
- Turtle Wax Renew Rx light/medium polishing compound ($5)
- Flitz metal/plastic polish ($8)
- A soft cloth or rag
Clean the computer’s display with a damp, soft cloth.
Apply a small amount of rubbing compound to the microfiber applicator, and gently polish the device’s screen. Use the compound sparingly, and don’t allow the compound to dry completely.
Wipe off the rubbing compound using a soft cloth.
Apply the polish to a clean section of the applicator, and lightly polish the display. As with the rubbing compound, be careful not to use too much polish, and don’t let it allow the polish to dry completely.
Using a soft cloth, remove any remaining polish and gently buff the screen. If some polish remains, use a soft cloth and isopropyl alcohol to clean any crevices, etc.
It’s important to note that displays often vary in hardness and quality. Using the above technique and materials, I’ve successfully restored Bosch, Bryton, Lezyne, and Polar displays. If you’re unsure whether your device’s screen can be restored, test the materials on a small corner of the display before attempting to polish the entire surface.
