Attatch your boat to it and keep it as an anchor.
Water will eventually corrode it no matter what you do. You could try and claim for it on your insurance.

Garmin had moisture inside,now screen is partly faded


Sounds like water damage, did you drop it into a lake or something? It might need a trip back to Garmin for repairs.

My garmin forerunner 305 does not identify my hertbeat


A few things to check: first, you have to moisten the sensors on the inside of the rib band or they won't pick up your heart beat. To do this, put a few drops of water on the ridged areas on both sides. Also, there is a battery in the band which can need replacement. Remove the cover to the battery using a nickel and replace it with a fresh one. If that doesn't work, I have had very good luck with Garmin tech support.

Garmin nuvi 360 suction cup knob issue


If the end of the cradle has a ball,and the cup has
a round part, just push the ball in, yes it does go in hard but should be ok. If it makes you feel more
comfortable, you can put a drop of water on ball and wipe it around, once it dries, it wont slop around.

Garmin Fishfinder 160 will not display bottom contours and does not display depth continuously.


Change your setting from saltwater to fresh water even if you fish in sea water,your transducer is a 00/200KHZ and not a 50/200KHZ.
Good luck

Nuvi 760 garmin got wet accidentally


I dropped my 760 nuvi into the dog's water bowl... (by accident of course)...

It was working but would shut off and eventually would not start.
Using the correct screwdriver with the star head, I removed the two tiny screws at he bottom back of the unit. Gently from the bottom, pry off the back.
Be careful as the battery pack and the speaker wire are still connected.

Using a hairdryer on Medium heat and high fan, air out the unit until all water/condensation is gone.

Before putting back together.... check that the unit works, and charges by connecting thusb to a computer.....

Once content it is working, snap the cover back together and screw in the 2 screws.

Garmin Suction Cup (Rubber)


Put a drop of dishwashing detergent and a few drops of water on the rubber and distribute it evenly before You mount it to the windshield. This mixture enhances the suction power and keeps the rubber soft. Repeat after 3-4 months! If You don't like the look of it on the outside of the window, put a smiley sticker on it! :-)

Hello rkfowler,

While the suction cup mounts included with most GPS units are very effective, they certainly can fail. It sounds like you are doing everything you can to make it work: cleaning both the windshield and the cup itself. You also might try putting a few drops of water onto the suction cup before affixing it.

If the suction cup mounts aren't working out for you, Garmin does have a couple of other options including a vehicle mount that uses a super strong adhesive or a friction style mount. These are available from Garmin directly on their website (www.Garmin.com) or through your local consumer electronics store, such as Best Buy.

Best Regards,
Ken
