A couple days ago while on vacation, the joystick to my REC nav unit (2005 4.7 Limited) stopped zooming in and out. It will still turn around in a circle, but instead of zooming in and out, it doesn't do anything. It still moves the cursor when you move the button in the direction you want the cursor to move, it just won't zoom the map when you turn the knob left or right. I have not been harsh with the joystick at all, it just seems to be extremely poorly made - almost as if it's just bound to break.
Can someone PLEASE help me with how to get this fixed?! I have searched and seen that MANY people have had the same problem. There is a post somewhere on another forum showing how to do the repair yourself, but it is extremely involved and requires soldering, desoldering, taking the unit apart, etc. I would not be successful with that, and have absolutely no idea how to solder anything, so won't even try and potentially break the unit.
My vehicle is NOT under warranty, so that's not an option.
I KNOW people on here have had this problem with their REC Nav units. It just seems bound to happen with how horrible the joystick is made. What have you done to fix your issue with it?!
