    What about some simple screen protectors? Both 'normal' and anti reflective ones. I use them on my phone and motorcycle display. Why not the Beeline?

    im going to get myself done in town later , and cut them out .

    would be good if Beeline put a few of each in the box.

    There are tempered glass screen protectors for the Beeline Moto already on eBay.

    Your missing the point Travis , at that price it should come with toughened glass or screen protection of some kind.

    seeing as there already on eBay suggests there is a problem with scratching , that could of been rectified bu Beeline already.

    Hey guys! Just spoken to our designer Sam on this. He says that the Beeline Moto screen is made from toughened glass, like that which is used in most phone screens. We've never heard from a customer that their Beeline Moto or Beeline Velo has been scratched so we would say that it shouldn't be a big cause for concern :). 

    We've spotted the screen protectors too and they look like they'll give a good extra layer of security if you are worried!

     

    Cheers,

    Kate.

    please go back to who you spoke to , and tell them not to talk rubbish , just so happens, ive just come back doing a bit of off road Green Lane riding .

    i got a bit of muddy water on my Beeline Moto screen , wiped it clean with my thumb .

    got home cleaning everything, the glass on the Beeline is scratched badly , if I knew how to post you the photos of the scratches I’d show the world .

    so please don’t tell me it’s toughened glass .

    be warned people the glass does scratch easily, just with a wipe of the thumb.

    Had a response back from Beeline 

    there looking into the scratches , I have explained what type of water was on the screen when I wiped it off.

    just for the community at large , it was water of the trees , road water , and general stuff , rain that I wiped off with a gloved thumb.

    as for the gloves , I explained they were the finest Rokker Grifter gloves , made from the finest calf skin costing close to £120 a pair ,so I doubt it’s them.

    they said they would see me right.

    I’ll keep you posted

    Sand particles can be the hardest things around (stuff you get from the road). Especially wiping with a (leather) glove with a lot of grip will make sure you get scratches. Can't remember exactly where, but I've read even the kevlar stitching could lead to scratches on some surfaces.

    If you ask me it should be a no brainer that wiping dirty road stuff with a leather glove is a big no-no.. therefore: screen protector! A lot cheaper to replace.

    Further to my last , top end brads for motorcycle gloves are now fitting micro fleece or chamois  leather on the thumbs of their gloves for that exact purpose of wiping water off you visor and dials whilst on the move.

    the gloves I use are Rokker  Grifters costing £120 a pair can highly recommend.
