Fogging Garmin 2610 & 2720

Well it happened again.

My 2610 was replaced by Garmin for loss of right tabs and fogging with a 2720.

The 2720 fogged in warm weather, and was replaced by Garmin with another 2720.

Now the replacement 2720 fogs in warm weather, but clears after an hour. Now in cooler weather the fog sections is real large, have not ridden enough in cold weather long enough to see if it clears. Currently there are around 60 days of warranty left on this one. The bike is kept in a unheated detached garage. Houston, Tx tends to the humid, temps range from 30F to 80F lately.

Do you think I should return this one or just accept the fogging ?

Comments, please.

I returned my 2720 for fogging and haven't had the issue happen again. They gave me a whole new (replacement) unit...........and it came preloaded with CN8 where my original had CN7


I'd send it back and tell them the trouble you have had with fogging and ask if they can replace it again before your warranty runs out.

Yes, before the warranty runs out and the snow melts (disregard if you don't have snow [damn you!])

My replacement 2610 fogs on occasion, and then clears up.. I figured no point in sending it in since they'll get it and say it's fine.. maybe I will call them and see what they say.

My 2730 would fog. They sent me another, which I haven't had fog yet.

2720 Fogging

My replacement 2720 fogs, not as often or as badly as the original, but it does fog. Someone earlier said that the fix is to back out the phillips screw on the back that opens the "flap". Under the flap are four tiny holes, leave the unit in a warm place, like over the TV or some other low heat source, for 24-48 hours with the holes towards the heat. This is supposed to remove the moisture that is inside the unit and causing the fogging. I did this and it seemed to work for several months. The fogging returned the last time I rode the bike so I've just done this again and will see if it helps.

My 2730 fogs right in the center of the screen, about a 1/2 in by 1-1/2 in wide. I'm taking it back to Costco to replace with a Zumo.

Unfortunately, I'll have a RAM cradle and power cords on three bikes that will be worthless.
