Hi Im sorry to hear that. This really needs to be repaired as it can cause a short circuit and destroy your Garmin.

The best place for that is to take it to Best Buy or Sears, both do excellent work and they are both fair priced so it is affordable to have fixed ;-)

I will stick with you until this is complete.
