I am glad to HELP YOU!

Definitely after the impact your device became LESS SENSITIVE on the lower left side.
So as a replacement you will need
FIRST - the digitizer
SECOND - the display [but ONLY if the older display has cracks or other damages].

GOOD LUCK!

Glass front broken on Magellan GPS unit. This


Hello. My recommendation is for you to call Magellan directly, get an estimate and then if you choose to, send it in for repair. You may ask a technical support question or request a repair and get a Return Authorization (RA) number by phone. An RA number is required prior to shipping your product to Magellan for repair. Hours: Monday through Friday, 6:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. PST/PDT
Telephone: 800 707 9971 Please rate my answer as very helpful. Thanks, Joe

Not touch sensative


In 90% of the cases it's the digitizer (the touch sensor that is mounted in front of the screen). You can try to replace it yourself or send it to a third party gps repair service.

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.

Cracked screen


The only way to repair it is to send it to Garmin for service. They recently told me the flat rate to repair my streetpilot 550c was $250. (!)

I have a Garmin Nuvi 660 and the suction cup fell off the inside of the windshield and broke the screen on the GPS. I believe it is only the touch screen portion because the picture looks and acts fine. ...


If the unit is under warranty, then send it back to the manufacturer. I had one customer that had the same thing happen and the manufacture offered to replace her unit free of charge.

If the unit is out of warranty, the manufacturer will not sell you a replacement screen. You can find them on eBay, but unless you know how to take the Nuvi apart, you face damaging the unit further.

If the touch screen is bad, the Nuvi will not recognize any presses on the screen. Having worked on many of these units, there is really nothing to go bad on a touch screen unless its physically damaged or has become disconnected from being dropped. If it appears that the glass is cracked, then it is the LCD display that is bad. The touch screen is a clear film layer that lays over the LCD display.

I would strongly suggest that you purchase a Garmin friction mount and no longer use the window mount. With a friction mount, your Nuvi will not fall and the friction mount is legal in all 50 states, whereas a window mount may not be.

Garmin c330 cracked screen


You can buy a new C330 now for $125 - $175. It would probably cost that much to repair the old one, I would replace it.
