Sat nav computer screen

Hi all
Recently decided to clean the dashboard and ended up also cleaning the (lcd?) screen of the computer. The screen still works but is fuller and distorted, flickers a bit. Cleaning solution must have damaged the screen. Asked if the screen could be replaced was told Ä1500 for new unit(which still works fine). Does anyone have any experience of this, is there a way to replace the screen? And yes Iím a dope wasnít thinking. Ta.

Re: Sat nav computer screen

This is a very new unit, and only made by one company which as I recall is not a major manufacturer.

As a result your only option could well be a total replacement of the unit.

You could seek out a company that might repair it, but I wouldn’t keep your hopes up.

Replace it with an aftermarket unit, would cost a lot less than 1500EUR

Re: Sat nav computer screen

Do you have anything like Halfords in Austria? They're certinaly not considered the best in this country, but they have the advantage of having the ability to do the install for you if you're not confident doing it yourself. An independent car audio specialist would be better of course

Re: Sat nav computer screen

Iím not sure Iím English and not Austrian so Iíd have to have a look around for a Halfords type shop. To be honest Iím not that pleased with the build quietly of this thing but there you go.

Thereís lots of different aftermarket ones that are powered by android. These are ~£200. You can use one of these in your Punto in place of the original Dachi one. If you want a dachi one youíll be talking a lot lot more than £200, itís 1500EU as you said. If I were you Iíd just scrap the original system since the screen is knackered and buy an android one like the one Andy posted a link to. Have a look round and get the model you want as there are a few different designs.

Maybe look for one of the original units by Daichi online thatís used and taken from a damaged car?
