I've heard of actual hard water cleaners you can buy at auto parts stores, but my suggestion is windex with a microfiber towel/rag. Just make sure the Windex is the kind WITH AMMONIA. It has seemed to work very well for me, that's all I use around the house now as well.

EDIT: Don't know if I would recommend using the Ammonia based windex on tinted windows though. Be cautious with that.

there's alot of good hard spot remover's out there. you need to do it when the windows are cold and shaded. most spot removers won't work on a hot window. The first one that comes to mind is Duragloss Nu-Glass. you put it on like a wax let it set a minute, then buff it out. you may need to take a high speed buffer to the window to work out the tough spots, if you do just make sure you tape off the windows so you don't burn your seals/trim with the buffer.......but NuGlass is the shit! (sold at autozone i believe-$6-8)

Over time your tint will turn purple if you do.

window cleaner and a steel wool pad should work

I went to a Meguilar's dealer here in town here the exact same issue...the old lady showed me some fine steel wool and some Machine Glaze I should use afterward. Never did get around to trying it as the EX wrecked the car soon after.

majestic solutions in raleigh makes a hard water spot remover. just spray it on let it sit and spray it off. if theyre bad you can razor blade scrape the window while the stuff is on there to remove even more. i can vouch this stuff works great, just do not use it on the actual front windshield as it will turn windshields white and cloudy.
