    I have one and it does help. Usually, if I do get bug splats, I get them higher up the windshield. I typically don't get them much though.

    Where we live, probably every other truck or every third truck has one on. Also bugs are aplenty around here. When I visited San Diego some years ago, I did not see too many vehicles with one on. I would think bugs are not as big of a problem there. I think it really depends on where you live.

    My AVS's work pretty good up to a point. If you come across a bug swarm, then not much help. Just a lot of bug splats up high. Doesn't happen too often around here. Definitely worth the money. (Not much $ either)
