Cracked Screen 430N
 
Dangit.... cracked the glass in the nav on my 2011:(. Anyone know if I need to replace the glass only, screen only, or the entire head unit?

Let me know, please and thanks!

BTW - The screen itself works fine - only the glass is cracked. There is no touch response, but I think it's just bc the glass is cracked so badly.

Yea, I don't think even the MAX care warranty covers any thing like this.

If the touch screen isn't working then you've cracked more than the glass.

Thanks Josh - going to see how much is covered by my Auto Ins, if any as well... Any clue if I can replace the screen without a whole new head unit?

Heres a link to a guy on Ebay that repairs them. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Replacement-SCREEN-for-Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep-MyGig-Radio-/190696511586?pt=Car_Audio_In_Dash_Receivers&hash=i tem2c6665d862

A few days ago I saw a replacement screen on Ebay too.

On most touchscreens you have a touch overlay, that sits over top of the actual LCD screen. It sounds like this is what you cracked.

Just out of curiosity, how'd you manage to crack it?

The glass is what broke - not sure if that's also the overlay or not, but the LCD is fine. I broke it when I let my temper get the best of me... Not a violent guy, the screen is just more sensitive than I thought it would be ;)

ScreenSurgeons in Troy MI say they can fix the whole "flip out" piece for 400 bucks... Much better than a new unit!

I would check on Ebay first for a used one. I see them selling regulary for $300 - $400.
