My husband dropped his Garmin Nuvi 260W that he got for Christmas and cracked the screen. Is there any way to get this repaired? I live in Pittsburgh.

    Our Garmin screen shattered. We received it as a gift in November 2008. Was purchased at Best Buy in Lafayette, LA. Since there is a one year limited warranty, will Best Buy replace it? Can the screen be changed?

    I've already repaired this unit and it's on its way back to the owner.

    Here's some information from the manufacturer's website:

    As you can see, a cracked screen is NOT covered by the warranty.

If it's not covered by your warranty, there is a site which repairs broken screens on Garmin Nuvi's and their prices are VERY reasonable. They will also update your firmware for free while it's in the shop. Go to http://www.sharc.net/gps_repair.htm and click on the broken screen link.

I am not affiliated with this service centre but I understand they are very good, dependable and prompt.

Did your huband know if they brought it at best buy or where they go it.
chances are it might still be under warranty
If that is the case take it there or call them and see what you can do.
otherwise see if you can locate a garmin shop around your area by going on the garmin
web page garmin.com

Hi - I own a Garmin Nuvi 260w. Is it possible to use the SD card to download a trucker navigation road map and upload this to my Garmin Nuvi 260w? Thanks for your response.


Hello,

It is possible as long as the map is Garmin compatible.
However even with a trucker navigation map installed, the nuvi 260w will not function as a trucking GPS as the routing and IQ of the nuvi 260w does not have the capability to operate in this manner.
The nuvi 260w does not have a trucking mode to allow for the input of specific truck information like truck and trailer length and gross vehicle weight to use as factors on determining the best route for the specific truck/trailer combination.
I would recommend using a GPS specifically designed for trucking like the Garmin Dezl.
