Has anyone replaced their touchscreen on the NAV/Radio unit? Mine cracked and I would like to fix it myself. Do you know where I can purchase the digitizer (plastic face)?

Also, I have removed the radio from the dash but don't see how to removed the black face-plate (bezel) from it... I have removed 4 small screws and see where there are tabs holding it in place, but something else has it locked down. I think it is the vol/channel selector controls. Any information on how to remove this would be appreciate!

Sorry, should have said it is in my 2011 F-350. If I can't find one cheap I will just get an iPad Mini and stick it in front of the Radio/NAV head. Ford's nav system sucks compared to the ones you get with smart phones and tablets. Plus free updates, but not from Ford.

That is the "brick" nav/radio with hard drive. Check eBay to see if there are any there at a reasonable price. Not sure the screen is available as a replaceable unit like the smartphones.

Thanks, Larry. I looked on eBay but so many to browse through I couldn't be sure of what I needed. The store you recommended wants $299 to change it. I don't think the Ford NAV is worth it. Probably the worst navigation system I have ever used, not to mention the outrageous cost to update from Ford (maps & outdated POIs).

Guess I may have to install an iPad mini in it's place.

The one thing good about this nav/radio you have is that it does have a DVD...2013 and up trucks only have a CD player...Many on the websites have replaced the standard radio with an aftermarket nav/radio....many of the aftermarkets do let you use the steering wheel controls also...
