Garmin GPSmap 76Cx cracked screen

The polarized clear plastic screen got badly cracked. The LCD display still works, but it's now harder to read and water could get in. I don't want to buy a new unit, so is there a way to purchase a replacement part?

My Garmin GPSMAP 178C screen backlight failed

Backlight problem: Remove the display, remove the light tube from behind the LCD. Buy a led panel from Ebay for around $5 and install it behind the LCD under the drfusing layers. Run the wires out to a 12 VDC source and there you have it.

Garmin Maps

No, Garmin maps will not work on a Magellan Triton.

Yes, you can install Bluechart and CityNavigator onto one SD card. Inside Mapsource, select the Bluechart maps you want, then switch to CityNavigator and select the maps you want from then, and then send all at once to the GPS unit. If you send Bluechart maps, and then CityNavigator, the CityNavigator will overwrite the Bluecharts. This is why it must be done all in one step.
If this solves your question, please remember to come back and rate the answer.

Garmin nuvi 200 wont calibrate

I think I just solved this!
(I had the same problem.)

Hooray for google!
I found the answer here:

"72 Troubleshooting - Screen:
If the touch screen is not responding to your taps properly, calibrate the screen.
Turn the Nuvi off. Then, slide and hold the Power button to the left for about 30 seconds."

After you slide, and hold, the power switch to the left (ON position) for 20-30 seconds, the next screen that comes up should be the calibration screen, telling you to press the dots on the crosshairs.

I recommend using your finger to press the dots, just as you would in your vehicle. I thought I could be more precise using a stylus when I first got the device, but apparently that is what caused the problem in the first place.
Live & Learn!

FWIW -- I have the Garmin Nuvi 200 (not 200W).
I don't know why this problem is listed under 76Cx.
