Navigation Screen Line

I have a 2012 GL350 and today noticed a dark thin line across the entire screen in the middle. Does this line indicate the screen is going out and what options are available if it’s near the end of its operating life? I noticed new screens on EBay for $350.00 but does this resolve the issue? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

the rubber connector/ ribbon between the pcb and the screen inside the headunit is failing. It can stay like this or it can deteriorate in various ways ranging from annoying to rendering screen useless. A new screen will fix the issue.

yes, this appears to be the correct part and the fault is internal to it so a new one should fix your issue

You might want to consider to upgrade the whole thing.
