How to Replace the Screen on a TomTom
A cracked TomTom screen may need to be replaced. (gps image by AlcelVision from Fotolia.com)

The TomTom portable GPS features maps of the United States, Canada and Europe. Since it is a portable device, the screen can easily be damaged or scratched, which can make it difficult to see. Replace the screen yourself using household tools.

Instructions

    Insert the tip of a small flathead screwdriver in the divet underneath the LCD screen and gently pull up to pry off the plastic bezel. Set the screen aside.

  5. 5

    Insert the new screen inside the TomTom frame.

  6. 6

    Place the bezel over the replacement screen and push down gently until the bezel snaps into place.

  7. 7

    Turn the TomTom over and reconnect the LCD ribbon cable to the main system board and replace the screws.
