MFT screen size?

Anyone have the dimensions of the MFT screen? Is it the same size as the screen in the Edge and Explorer? I'm looking to order a Nushield Dayvue screen protector. They don't make one for the Focus yet, but they can custom fit one if I can get them the dimensions. I've called Ford three times with no luck. I'd do it myself, but I don't have a caliper. Thanks in advance.

It's an 8 inch screen. Should be the same size as edge/explorer/mkx. :)

I installed the NuShield DayVue screen protector last week. Yes, the screen is 8" and uses the same one listed for the '11 Edge.

Part # NU380RA

Pro tip: Thoroughly clean display with LCD cleaner and a lint free cloth, and have a can of compressed air on hand to remove small particles of dust.

I had to reapply mine two or three times trying to get it straight and even. No dust bubbles! You can't even tell it's there.

Hope this helps!

Does it really cut down on the glare? I really only experience glare with the sunroof open or even with the sunshade open, but if this helps, I'd go for it.

They should make one with embedded microbes that live off of and consume human body oils.

I wouldn't say it cuts down on glare despite what was advertised, but it doesn't add glare. It's nothing like my anti-glare screen protector for my iPhone, but I was more concerned about preventing permanent scratches.

By the way, if anyone chooses to order, I was able to Google a 10% off coupon code!

Yes, finger prints on MFT screens are ugly & nasty.

It does motivate one to use more voice commands, though...

I just installed the Nu Shield protector yesterday. It was easy to do and it has cut down on some fingerprints. It is similar to the protector I bought for my iphone.

We'll see how it goes after some more use.
