Does anyone know where I can send this to be fixed? The unit will power up and will work, but the touch screen won't recognize any touches, so it's pretty much useless. Lowrance won't touch it...they'll only replace it at my expense.

I prefer somewhere in/around the Houston area.

Thank you

Why would Lowrance not service their own product?

Good question! They offer to sell you another unit that is highly discounted!

They'll swap out my broken one for a refurbed one for $725.00, but they won't fix my current one. Granted that's a lot cheaper than a new one, but it's still more than I can pay.

Humminbird will fix a touch screen that I broke for less than $725?

They're providing a new one at less cost than it would be for them to repair his product. Isn't a new unit for $725 better than them offering him a screen replacement for $1000?

Try one of the cell phone/tablet repair places that deal with cracked screens. You never know!

That screen must have a VERY realistic picture of the water column for you to want to throw a crankbait into it!bolt

Just kidding. I know that's gotta suck.

I did the exact same thing about a year but with 10XD, Lowrance 7 hdi it was about an hour old. Called Lowrance, nothing they can do, only found one guy on ebay that would mess with it. I replaced the glass myself, lights come on, but no display. Makes a great paperweight.

I have never owned anything but a Lowrance and their service does suck! I think I'm done with them.
