I just use the big screen detector sheets they sell for dirt cheap and cut to size.

I use a black rubber Minelab CTX 3030 Control Box Protector with a Minelab CTX 3030 Metal Detector Screen and Touch Pad Protector or the top of it. It is a tight squeeze to fit on but works great. I found both on FeeBay and will include the links if TNet will let me. Might not be what you are looking for but works really well for me.

Hope this helps & Happy Hunting,
Scooter

I use an iPad screen protector for the LCD & Keypad.
Its made by Zagg, I cut it down to size to fit.
Its a plastic film.

Works in the water which i use my ctx in most of the time.
Supposed to be self healing.

Nice thing is sort of bonds to plastic as you moisten it before applying but then it dries and grip is supper tight.
Never come off, but easy to peel off if you need to.

I have never used one, and I often hunt several times a week in thick woods. What type of environment would make one needed?

Very easy to scratch the plastic screen.

I use 2 protectors.

I use zagg as well.

1 I cut to fit the LCD screen.
2nd cut to fit the button area.

I use in sea water all the time. Never falls off.

Any type once you scratch your screen badly. They are like coil covers, a lot cheaper to replace the cover than the screen.

Also used this setup on my E-trac and worked like a champ. Probably not the ideal setup for everyone but serves my needs perfect. Very durable and has held up well...

I’ve got the same setup on my Etrac along with a Zagg screen protector. Still looks new.
