My Garmin has lost much of its "touch response" especially the lower lines where the Spell, go-back arrow, and go-down to next options are. Basically useless for all but Map viewing

Take you GPS to a repair service and get recalibrated or repaired the touch-screen. Or do it yourself?{31446910-c3a3-11e4-cd20-000000000000}

Garmin nuvi 350 - broken screen

If the LCD is actually leaking (big stain on the screen) then it cannot be repaired, only replaced.

Replacing an LCD is a relatively simple job on any GPS, it is normally just a case of opening the casing, disconnecting the ribbon cable on the old screen and putting the new one in its place. As long as you are careful and put everything back where you found it then you should have no problems.

You can check all the parts suppliers in your area or online for a new screen, but for the lowest cost solution I would suggest searching ebay for a faulty nuvi 350 with an intact screen. If you can find one you will probably get it for less than the cost of a new part, plus whatever bits you have left you can always resell. There are always people wanting to buy spares for satnavs.

Broken lcd screen

Ifthey 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.

Screen appears to be cracked but glass on the outside not broken.


If the outside panel is intact, then the crack may be on the LCD panel, located beneath the protective glass panel.

If the Sat Nav is less than one year old, then the replacement will be done free of charge.

Contact TomTom at the number listed on manual to arrange repair.
