    Wtf! I was cleaning the screen with a soft microfiber and the thing cracked! Now no matter where I press it always selects what's on the bottom right. Cannot type names or even select maps. What a pos!
    Going tomorrow to the dealership to see if I can exchange it. It should be under warranty since I got it less that 6 months ago and I rarely use it. It sits inside its case most of the time....what a pos! :deal
    Great way to blow $800plus

    Did I mentioned? What a pos.
    New info: just to clear things up, it was the digitizer screen that cracked. I should be under warranty but Garmin "offers" a repair service costing $200! That rounds thing up nicely to about $1100 spent on this pos. including the Touratech mount and adaptor. No wonder they were giving them away with the purchase of a new 1200GS.

    Wow...I've cleaned mine a number of times with no problem. I love mine. It has saved my butt more than once.

    Good luck with that warranty replacement. Screen broke while cleaning with rag.

    I swear,no point in me lying here. But it doesn't matter, the warranty does not cover screen damage anyway so its $160 for them to fix it.
    Btw it's not the screen but the plastic screen over the LCD that cracked.

    Possibly it was cracked just before you went to clean it? Possibly you got a defective one, which is no good. Either way, broken toys suck. Ask me about my last few cell phones :cry
