>Does anyone know if you buy the refurb model will Garmin transfer the lifetime map upgrades over to it?
Don't know. Call Garmin and wait on hold for 45 minutes, and then report back to us.
>As for the digitizer screen, so this is the guy to buy from for the correct size:
The "mingxing200808" link on eBay worked for me.
> Did the screen have the necessary adhesives on it to mount it to the frame?
Mine was in the frame already. If you read the first two tutorials, others have indicated that their digitizers had adhesive on the digitizer, and you have one shot at positioning it correctly.
>Any one know how long it would take to get this part to the US?
He quotes 2-3 weeks. My second one got here in about two weeks.
