A few years our GPS was stolen from our Tow Vehicle -- a smash and grab. It had been attached to the window, so was quite visible and an easy target.
I bought a new unit, this time got a friction mount so that it sat on the dashboard when in use. When not in use I carefully lifted it down to the floor of the car. This has worked well for more than one year.
But my wife and I both use the car, and the seat sometimes moves forward and backward. On one of its recent moves the digitizer screen on the GPS was cracked so that the unit was no longer serviceable.
The options seemed to be:
- Buy a new unit -- cost around $200
- Try to fix the old unit -- how to do this?
An internet search turned up a company in Minnesota that fixes broken GPS units. I mailed our GPS on Saturday December 21. It was received there yesterday, fixed today and mailed back to us. Wonderful service. Reasonable price. If you have a similar problem, suggest you check out the company: Palm Repair | Palm Sales | Zire | Tungsten | TX Repair | LifeDrive Repair | Palm Service
