Hello
Expert:  Dustin replied 4 months ago.

My apologies for the delay.

When you say the back screen.. Is it the top, or bottom screen on your 430W Waas unit that is out?

how do I get my $5.00 back?
Expert:  Dustin replied 4 months ago.

Its been 4 minutes since my last response. On my end, I was going over the manual since I dont have that device sitting in front of me at the moment, and I k now the 400w series had slightly different menu / button combinations then the 430.

With that being said, considering the sheer cost of one of those units our cost of 34$ ( not 5$ ) is more then fair considering most GPS repair outlets would charge 125$ Just to look at those units.

So my question before I put forth any suggestions is this, do you want the refund link now? Or do you want to continue?
