The best cleaner I've found for LCD / LED displays is Stoner's Invisible Glass.

Invisible Glass Premium Glass Cleaner | Invisible Glass available just about everywhere. Just spray it on and wipe it off. No foul smells and great for a clear screen. Works on iphones and ipads too.

Britannia - shared your feelings about the touch-screen. I probably would not have opted for the TS version of the 5212 I have - a "button" version was available at the time. However, since mine was a gift, I decided to "put up" with it.

Due to really marginal visibility from the lower helm, I always drive from the FB. Hence, the Garmin is mounted there. The only difficulty I've encountered is during heavy weather where accurate finger pointing becomes challenging. You learn to support your hand on the screen surround proximate to the function you're looking for and then tap with a finger (usually a thumb). Actually works quite well once you get the hang of it. Rain and spray doesn't bother the touchscreen function either.

Wish their was a reasonable way to port the video to wifi or somesuch for use on a larger conventional screen down below.

Like @sunchaser, my main nav screen is a laptop to in my case a 21" monitor. CE on the monitor, BlueIris on the laptop.

Plus Raymarine AP and MFD (w/CHIRP sounder), next to Garmin MFD (and radar). Will probably replace the Garmin with the new Raymarine HD radar in the next year or two. Legacy radar and sounders above. Not really thought out, it just kind of evolved this way. Guests have a decent view, but maybe I should also move to a 32" monitor.
