    Hi
    I had a Garmin Edge 305, and its LCD is broken due to a crash during a
    race, and the LCD is broken, however everythjing else in the device
    seems fine, so I was wondering if anyone knows what kind if LCD the
    unit uses, and where can I get one..
    Thanks
    Chris

    Unless you can get one from Garmin, you're probably out of luck. Most of
    these sorts of things are custom made for the manufacture. You might get
    lucky and find a broken GPS with a good screen on ebay.

    Can I not use a different LCD to display the same thing??

    If you want to re-engineer the display interface portion of the circuit and
    somehow manage to disassemble, modify and reassemble the firmware code to
    drive it then yes, but realistically no, it's all custom designed.

    It can be bought from Garmin only, if they will sell one to you.
    Normaly, they are the only ones to do the service on their GPS's.
    These displays are custom made for them.
