Help!
Accidently stepped on my garmin 255W nuvi.
Now there is a black ovular object running
diagonaly on one side.
The face screen is not cracked, and when I touch the screen it still beeps, but alas, no pic.
Is it possible I only broke the LCD, and not the touch screen?
Tom

Yes...the black indicates the LCD is damaged. If there are no cracks in the outerglass and the screen beeps when you touch it, your touchscreen is probably OK and you just need the LCD part.

I think my LCD is crack. I dropped it in the parking lot and I only saw it when I was leaving the lot. I was parked for 6 hours so I would assume the GPS(Nuvi 255W) was also in the ground for that amount of time. The face screen is not cracked and when I touch the screen it also still beeps except there is no picture. I could see some cracks inside though and the screen is white with some black spotches. Does sharcnet able to replace LCD screens for this unit and how much? I would appreciate it if you could email me on how I could have it repair asap. Thanks

We would need to know the serial number, which will tell us what type of LCD display is used inside. By what your describe, the LCD would appear to be damaged.

My Garmin Nuvi 255W's touch screen is cracked in top right corner and it is effecting the whole touch screen. I can not type in anything that I am trying to because when I press one letter on the keyboard comes up as another letter. It is a pretty beat up gps but Im pretty sure the only thing wrong with it is the touch screen part.
