I gess that there was oxide on the contacts. The grease won't clean it, but the chontact cleaner will.

Guess I'll try to do some tests on the cradle with a multimeter.

Hi.
This is the first time using any GPS under direct sun light. I learn I can't see hardly anything on the screen?

Looks like the screen just isn't bright enough. With my dark sunglasses on, I can barely see the screen under the shade.

How do y'all deal with this?

Sorry to resurrect an old thread. But I've lost the safety screw on the motorbike mount, and without it the pins don't make great contact. Does anyone know the thread size of the screw or perhaps where to buy one online (UK)?

I've tried an old serial/parallel cable thumbscrew for a PC but it was too big. Took it into the local Maplins and they didn't have anything that would fit either.

So for you guys who use these, do you have to buy new maps every year?

Yeah, I know about torrents, but if that's not an option would I have to buy a new map every year if I want the most current map?

I'm guessing yes but just want to confirm before making a decision.

Thanks!

How do you update your maps? Pay every year? Lifetime? Torrents?

Thanks!

Peaklife GPS

I was going to sell mine until I used it on the WABDR,it worked better than my old 2610.
I just wish I wasn't such a GPS noob and could figure out how to get tracks into it.

I'm using iGo Primo 2, and as far as I can tell the only way to do this is to create a KML file with a list of waypoints. That's what I do using Google maps, then place the file in the Primo2/content/userdata/route directory and load it on the GPS. Then you have to carefully inspect the loaded route to make sure the GPS chose the roads you wanted.
