Re: Cracked glass

If you're handy with small tools, you can make a new screen using Lexan, a Dremel tool to shape it, and then glue it into place. You'll have to dismantle the unit first to get the broken screen out.

Either that, or send it in to Garmin for replacement.

Replacement glass for Garmin etrex vista c

I'm halfway down replacing my cracked glass. With a sharp fine knife with rounded tip it was easy to lift slowly and gently the original glass from its seat. Working from the outside only. Not opening at all the GPS unit. Then removed the remainders of the adhesive tape. The cell phone shop around the corner had plenty replacement glasses. He gave me a Samsung which had proper width already and was slightly to tall. With a file a trimmed it to almost exact shape. I intend to place using aquarium silicone glue. Should do it.
Best of luck, Johannes

Cracked glass

It will have to be returned to Garmin. They have a very good program to repair or replace your GPS for a flat fee. It seems to be a very good way to have your GPS fixed. Save your waypoints before you send it to them.

Garmin nuvi screen cracked

If they don't give you a new one under warranty, are third party Garmin repair services that will fix it for cheap. Also, I found an DYI GPS repair guide,so you can do it yourself too, not that difficult.

Using a DGPS on a 76csx

there is no possibility to use DGPS with 76csx... due to the fact that 76csx receivers use chipset the 'sirf star III' series and this chipsets don't allow use any RTCM data.
