Merely fixing the screen may not result in a reliable functioning unit. And how, exactly, does one crack a screen anyway? That's a failure I've never heard of before.

Your best bet to answer that question is to contact Furuno USA directly. They have great customer service. Support Home

The fact is, many older units are quit functional and robust even though they do not have the latest and greatest features that many claim are must haves but most don't seem to know how to use. Our old Raymarine R 21xx does not have a lot of the new features but it does allow us to spot and track "fast movers" easily, before they are in sight or a threat, track rain squalls and storms and plot positions via ranges and bearings, set up guard-zones, etc. etc. etc.
