Whichever one you may have. Have you ever dropped it on a hard surface, and what was the outcome when it hit a hard surface? I accidentally dropped mine on a brick. There is a scratch. But I am wondering if, the crack will get worse. Like with a car's windshield.

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

TIA

If my 200 has scratched, I haven't noticed. It seems pretty tough to me, and I have dropped it.

Is it scratched or cracked. Highly unlikely it will get worse because it's plastic and not glass. Stress cracks caused by and exposed to repetitive stresses can grow, but that's not likely to the be the case here. I had a 705 with a cracked window over the display. I used it for awhile before getting it replaced by Garmin.

This doesn't help you now ... but I cut out a piece of phone screen protector to put on the face of my Garmin.

Silicon sleeve and a screen protector -- small price for bounce and scratch protection.

Heck, for Edge1K, they sell screen protectors for it on Amazon.
