I think its better to buy a new TomTom, then going for the replacement of the screen. Replacement of the screen would cost you more rather than going for the new TomTom. As a broken screen or scratch screen doesn't have any warranty and as per the rules and regulation TomTom will not assist you for the above issue.

Re: How do i replace the screen on my TomTom

If you are having the TomTom splash screen, then just follow the below steps mention.

1. Select the image or photograph you want to have displayed on your TomTom.
2. Then open an image editing program (Paint, Microsoft Office Picture Manager, etc.) and try to rotate the selected image let say for 90 degrees clockwise.
3. Re-size the image to 320 pixels high x 240 pixels wide. (For TomTom Navigator the image needs to be resized to 320 pixels HIGH and 240 pixels WIDE.)
4. Then try to save the image as a 24-bit Bitmap file named ?splash.bmp?.
5. Plug Your TomTom GO into your computer via the USB cable.
6. Then open your TomTom GO ?hard drive? within My Computer.
7. Locate the original splash file which is called ?splash.bmp? and rename it to ?splash1.bmp? (this naming allows you keep the original TomTom splash screen)
8. Try to copy your image (splash.bmp) from your computer to the same TomTom GO directory.
9. Disconnect and boot up your TomTom GO. Your personalized picture
would be there as soon as you try to turn it on.
