Hi there,

I dropped my Garmin eTrex... though I had it properly latched on my belt - duh! and the screen is now only working in the bottom half which makes use of it pretty impossible.

If anyone's blind and wants a good working GPS, let me know... or alternatively, has anyone had any experience getting one repaired?

Cheers
Andrew.

I'm after the programing lead for one of those if you want to sell it really cheap :-)

Send it back to the Australian agents, you might be pleasantly surprised.

Which version of the etrex is it Andrew?

They are easy to open and have a sticky beak at.....view the instructions on how to do it from these instructions (i cant find the original site):

oops - it is actually a Garmin GPS 60 not an etrex at all. I'll be inspired to take it apart and see if I can order the spare parts... it is obviously not as rugged as it is alleged to be ;-)

I had an older magellan bite the dust and Next Destination sold me a new one though they had been withdrwn from sale when the later models came out. It was $150, the original cost me four or six hundred cant remember. I got an explorer already but the old one was better.
