Er, a reflection is a reflection.  He's not talking film on the 'screen.

Poor choice of words on my part.  Sorry I confused you.  If the windshield
is clean it doesn't reflect the display.

Of course it does, but you don't get back scatter from the film, which
seems to be the distraction.

Thanks!  I will try that.  Being here at the "top of the world", we do an
awful lot of night driving in the winter (because it is almost always
night).  I don't have the cool cleaning tool but will try with a microfiber
cloth and a spatula or something.

I do a lot of that too and, like you, have been bothered by the reflection.
The film seems to be caused by a combination of outgassing from the plastics
and cigarette smoke.  I quit smoking a year ago and I suppose the outgassing
diminishes with time.  To get rid of it I first wash it with a mild solution
of dish soap and water.  In my smoking days that would turn the cloth
orange.  I did the second washing with Windex.  I'm definitely going to look
for that cool tool.
