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.

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

I can help you fix the satellite problem with your Garmin Nuvi 265WT.

Poor or inaccurate GPS tracking, and taking a long time to acquire satellites, are issues that have been addressed by Nuvi 265WT firmware updates.

There are three steps to take to get your Nuvi 265WT running better than new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin 265WT WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.

The touch screen on our Garwin Nuvi 360 do not function.


Unfortunatly there is a fine wire Grid below the surface of the glass, the grid detects where you are touching on the screen, with the glass being broken, the grid is broken, which will cause dead spots or regions on the touch screen. You will have to replace the Touch screen or the unit which ever is most cost effective.

Hope this is of some help.

It sounds like the ribbon cable that connects the screen to the controller might be seated incorrectly. I would check that.
