Welcome to Justanswer.com, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to assist you.
You are correct, if you want to send the device into garmin, they will repair it for free. You will be without the device for about 6 weeks though.
You can start that process by using this link http://www8.garmin.com/support/warranty.html
About halfway down the page, the RMA request section will get you going.
With that being said, If you want me to help you repair the device now, there would be a fee. ( unless I was unable to help you fix the device )
Let me know how youd rather proceed.

Did you even read my response at 1:49 pm ?
In that case you may be interested in this link!
Thanks But no?
The link I sent you, was for a refund.. All you had to do was click it and follow the steps to submit your refund request!
