    hi
    I've had my GO6100 for a few years now, & it was wonderful (in the main!) but it fell on the floor recently & is now sporting a beautiful diagonally cracked screen.
    I was hoping that it was just a crack, as it started up, but unfortunately it no longer functions - I tried typing & just get @@@and other random letters:(

    Help!

    Do I need a new sat nav or can it be repaired??

    I've tried using Waze & google maps etc in the meantime, but it drains the phone battery too much & I can't attach it to a decent holder due to the phone case I use.

    Also, if its a write off, what's a good replacement - I like to have world maps as we travel a fair bit,

    Thanks in advance
    Paula

    Google 'SatNav repair shops in the UK' and do some research.

    thanks, good to know how much it would cost to DIY it....I've sent off for a quote from Sat Nav Repairs, hopefully they are reputable
