    Just as I have a clear protector on my smart phone, I would like to have a screen protector for the Tesla's giant screen. Has anyone found a high quality screen protector? I also find the screen just out of finger reach, has anyone used a touch screen stylus? Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks, RNG

    I have the nushield but haven't put it on yet. Doesn't really seem necessary but I may use it yet.

    I love the touch functionality on the Tesla main screen. Light touch only, works perfectly. Any screen protector will IMHO reduce that level of comfort, and I don't see my main screen as being too at-risk for damage. I won't drop it or put it in my pocket with other stuff. So I'm going to skip the protector.

    I know this doesn't specifically address your question, but I just wanted to offer up a different perspective. My phone and my car's main screen have entirely different risk profiles.

    I have a stylus (actually 2)in my car. I never use it. It does work though. They were like a dozen for $6 on amazon, with free Prime shipping.

    I installed the Nushield protector, it was exceptionally easy, and does not seem to reduce the sensitivity of the screen at all.

    Does it reduce the fatty finger marks? I really do not need a protector for damage, but the finger marks are annoying.

    I think it does, I honestly hardly ever see any finger marks from the driving position. They are still a little more obvious from the passenger side, but I think it's an improvement.

    As I mentioned in the other thread listed above, I have been very happy with the NuShield screen protector however IMHO it does not significantly reduce glare nor fingerprint visibility.
