Hi,

Cobra SPX 7800 BT - Radar Detector

Does anyone know where could I purchase or look for a replacement screen for a Cobra SPX 7800 Bt detector, mine came with several cracks on the bottom right hand corner. It works, beeps ok, no color screen display and therefore unable to change settings.

Thanks
