Hi, I just got back from three weeks in Nova Scotia and my Nav II (2610) screen delamed about a week into the trip. First some small bubbles about the size of a pin head appeared and aprox. two days later I walked out to the Lt in the morning and the entire top layer was bubbled and cracked. The screen surface underneath is VERY sensitive and scratches easily. I had previously done some goggling on the problem and it appeared to happen with some regularity. I called Garmin and the tech was GREAT, the GPS is covered under the BMW 3 year warranty. Thanks for the warranty. Frankly, I have had more warranty work on my 05 Lt, than all the other Japanese and Ducatis I have owned in the last 34 years combined. Anyway, my GPS is currently at Garmin. The tech said if my unit could not be repaired in a "reasonable amount of time" it would be replaced with a "REFURBISHED" unit.
On a side note, Nova Scotia is great. Prince Edward Island is a tourist trap (IMO), similar to door county in Wisconsin. There is a $15.00 fee to access the beaches. All the Canadian border crossing guards were friendly and helpful (my wife is British – resident alien), ALL their US counter parts where RUDE and INDIGNENT ASSES! The US tool booths where the ONLY places we got ripped off (20%) on currency exchange also. I needed to say that. Thanks
