Scratch in Nav Plastic

When the sun hit the plastic nav screen in my car this morning I noticed a scratch about an inch long. It wouldn't rub out with a microcloth or, er, spit.

Also, I can't even feel it and am wondering if it might be on the inside! Anyone ever run across a situation like this or have a suggestion on how to either fix or tell on which surface it is? I would think the dealer would fix it if it's on the inside since that's a quality control issue. I'm pretty sure it wasn't anything I did either as I haven't even had to clean the interior yet.

It's not a big deal, but once you know something is there it can be hard to ignore ..

Thanks!

If it's on the outside you should be able to feel it with your finger nail. If it is then get yourself some polish they sell for polishing out scratches on a cell phone screen.

Yeah, that's what I thought and I can't feel anything so I bet it's on the inside. I'll ask the dealer about it. Though, not sure I would want the dash disassembled for this.. but it looks there are some screws above the plastic that would allow the cover to be replaced pretty easily.
