Introduction

GPS may be dropped and the front screen is cracked. Replacement is needed in order to properly see the screen and avoid getting cut from broken glass. When prying do not use metal tool as this can cause static damage. Be careful when removing the screen because the broken glass can cut you. The device can be identified by it's model number which is located under the small panel on the bottom of the device.

Broken doesn't stand a chance.
Pry along the edges with the plastic opening tool to separate the back and front panel. Try not to tear the screen open as you may break the part. Go about this gently but with enough force to remove the screen.

My 1605M has the touch screen attached by a 4 conductor ribbon cable, making the job much more complicated than depicted in this guide.

Place the new front panel (with new screen) on to the back panel. Press firmly along the edges to attach. Only do this step of placing the front panel on if you are completed. If there are still components needed replacing postpone this step until the end. Only do this step of placing the front panel on if you are completed.
