Question about Furuno GPS
SOURCE: furuno gps gp 32
The only place to get that screen is through a Furuno authorized dealer. The unit is sealed and gas filled to remain waterproof. You're best bet would be to send the unit in to Furuno for repair. You wont save much doing it yourself because the cost of the screen makes up most of the cost of the repair. They will also make sure that all the software is up to date for the new WAAS satellites that recently went on line.
Have you tried adjusting the contrast? On that model I believe you tap the power key while the unit is on and you will see 2 sliding scales on the screen, one for brightness and one for contrast. Up or down arrows select the scale and left or right arrows adjust it. If the contrast and brightmness aren't tied into the power key on that model, they're somewhere in the set up menu.
If adjusting the contrast doesn't help then the screen has most likely failed. This is commonly caused by old age, however repeated exposure to extreme heat or cold can cause premature failure.

I have the connection diagram for the GPS unit below. It should be simple to wire up. You will need a USB to RS-232 converter, which is available in a number of computer shops/Radio Shack.
Hope this helps you out,

If it has a round radar plug in the back then the answer is yes and it already has radar support. However to upgrade your unit to the latest software you will need a dealer for that. It's a very tricky process and if not done properly, you can ruin the bootloader programming that starts the unit. I know of a dealer that does this if you want to check in with them. You can even send them the unit. Try www.mid-shore-electronics.com.
