    Hi, Homemender. I'd like one of your spare screens, if they will fit a TomTom ONE v2 (rectangular but not wide screen). I'm not sure how we arrange this, but perhaps you could email me at john.bevan@virgin.net if you don't want everyone to see!

Hi, Unfortunatly , the cost of a screen means it is not cost effective to fit a new one. However , if you can obtain another tomtom ( but faulty ) the same as yours it might then be worthwhile doing as the cost of a used but broken tomtom is often less than a new screen. You can buy faulty TomToms off Ebay. Provided you make sure that the one you buy has a ' good screen ' you can remove it and fit the used screen into your own TomTom. It's fiddly and you need special screwdrivers to remove the torx screws holding it all together. A person who is experienced with repairing small items like mobile phones etc should be able to complete this task easily but someone with no experience might get themselves into more trouble and make things even worse. There can be many parts to remove and disassemble just to get to the screen. Removing the screen is also delicate as it is held in place with little plastic lugs and great care has to be taken not to break these lugs off or in fact break the screen whilst doing so . Hope this helps , if you are in UK , let me know and I might be able to help , I do have some spare screens here but it depends on model . good luck .

Cracked Screen


yes it can be fixed and its neither expensive or complicated and the Garmin 265 is definitely worth fixing especialy if its a 265w.

do not recycle your gps like was previously advised...you can ether buy the part or have it repaired HERE fixya.com/users/sharcnet

there are two totally different parts to the screen, one is the lcd part (thats what shows you the images on the screen)..the other is the digitizer (thats what allows you navigate your screen and menu) it probably only needs the digitizer and not the lcd unless the screen is blank

the fellow in the link actually works on these everyday, same as i do and we do not have to guess at whats wrong with it or whether its worth fixing or not ...thanks to some dubious experts here on fixya i can not link you to me directly or id fix it for you for free, excluding parts and shipping.




good luck

I have TomTom 730 not 720 but still I need the screen fixed


hey wendy...sorry about the screen but it is the truth....you might be able to find some places on the internet, but the price for the screen alone,might not be worth it....I have not seen too many places where it is successful.

Our Nuvi 200w was dropped and the screen is cracked. Suggestions and where to send it for repair .. thanks


i don`t know how true this is the guy at the source
told my wife that even if it get`s repaired under warranty if you live in Canada you have to send it to the U S for repairs when they ship it back you
are charged custom fees depending on how much
you paid for it probably not worth it, if you paid for
it with your gold mc card you are covered for damages good luck
