Where is the best place to get this from???
Came out this morning, and the lowest of scum on the earth has broken into my car, got pretty much S.F.A, but belted through the driver's window to get into the car.
Car still there, they stole a Navman F20 (no power cord with it), and my Service station $10 special sunglasses with scratches all over them.
So now I am left with owing work a Navman (no hard buy there, they are cheaper now than when work got it), but the hardest part is finding a friggin Window within the next day or 2 to re-secure my Soarer goodness.
Trying people on a Sunday, all I got was "we need to order that in, and speak to supplier".

That's a bummer brian. With your Navman, you could try claiming it on Insurance. I have a TomTom GPS and it's covered under my general house hold Insurance along with my digital camera because they are portable devices.
- Just re-read that it was your works GPS, anyway I guess this might help other people..

For people wanting to know, I replaced the Window yesterday.
For Sydney people, I went to GMS spares located in Revesby, they have the Soarer glass out and ready to go when I got there, total cost of the glass was $250.
I then took it to my regular window guys at Instant Windscreens at Artarmon, and let them fit the window while I worked on a few other issues with the car, they took about an hour and had the new glass fitted.
They didn't tint the window at the time, as they didn't have dark enough tint on hand, but this will come at a price of about $40 for the 1 window, to match the tint on the other windows.
The installation of the glass cost $151.60, so total price roughly $400.
