Question about Garmin GPSMAP 76CSx Handheld GPS GPS Receiver
When inserting the batteries into the unit, the pos connector on one of the battery terminals broke loose. If I insert the broken tab back into the unit after the battery has been installed, the unit works fine. I just want to know who can fix this in Omaha, NE. Garmin wants $75.00 just to see it. HELP!
I had this happen with my 76CS. The cost for a look at it is $125. I used a piece of aluminum foil.
Fold it over, make certain it holds tight against the wire.
It's not the best solution, but it works.
You could also search for a device with a similar battery contact, unsolder it, and pull the Garmin apart and solder it in. I'm still looking for the right device.
