Anyone take a Garmin 2720 apart?

My unit functions fine. But it seems as if the USB port doesn't work.

I cannot find any info on replacement parts, Garmin says they won't work on it, I was wondering if it would be possible to buy a unit with a dead touch screen to take apart and see if there was an I.C. I could swap out to get the USB working?

Wonder if the problem might be in the USB cable, Bob? I just looked at the port on my 2720 and even the cover plug is a tight fit into the port. So, could be a pin placement problem?? Dunno.

Come to think of it - you in the market for a rarely used, refurbed 2720? Complete kit with all accessories and CD. I just never ride where mine gets any use anymore. It might have been turned on once last year, butt that's it. If interested, send me a PM and we'll work out sumpthin'.
