Question Question about screen dimensions (8.4AN)

Hi,

I'm currently looking for screen-protectors for the 8.4AN and located a product.

I entered the vehicle info and they list a protector with a size of 165 x 120 mm. However, these dimension match a 8" diameter and not 8.4". So my question is: Is this the right size (about 6.5" x 4.75") or is the 8.4AN-screen indeed 8.4" and not just 8" as suggested by this particular company?

It could also be that there are only 8" visible and that that's the reason for this smaller protector but since I obviously don't have my car (yet), I simply don't have a clue.

Would be great if somebody could jump into the garage and check that out...

Thanks in advance!

Re: Question about screen dimensions (8.4AN)

C'mon, folks....75 views and nobody is able to take a tape-measure and check out if the screen is 8.0 or 8.4"? That can't be too difficult...Pleeeeease....

I have the 8.4AN. The physical touch screen area measures 6.5" wide x 5.0" high.

Thank you very much! That's exactly what I needed to know. This confirms that the actual diagonal is indeed slightly bigger than 8.0".

I will.

I already have a similar protector on my current Lincoln MKZ and it works great. My screen used to be a fingerprint-magnet and the slightly matt version I picked helps a lot.

Re: Question about screen dimensions (8.4AN)

I've actually been very surprised at the lack of visible fingerprints on my touch screen. The matte finish seems to work very well in that regard.

Re: Question about screen dimensions (8.4AN)

That's good to know. It was terrible on my Lincoln.
