    I love it when I can keep a tool I like and not have to spend money replacing it with something that has a new learning curve. If its broke, fix it.

    Thanks to this thread, I'm sending in my 550 as well.

    Screen started de-laminating this morning and the unit started acting up yesterday coming down off of Mt. Mitchell.

    Is there any fix for missing buttons or am I hosed?

    Also my unit stopped charging on a long trip and when I looked at my cradle just one of those damn little brass buttons was gone on the cradle.

    Would that cause it not to charge?

    If this happens is there an alt charging method?

    Keep those 450-550's rolling.
    See post #2
    Number of folks have used them with good results at very reasonable prices.

    I sent my old 450 there for some kind of malfunction; I Think he’s still in business. I still use my 450 because it’s loaded with a bunch of MadMaps. Haven’t figured if/how they can be moved to a 595, which by the way, has the worst screen
    From my experience, a lot of the 450s suffer from failure to startup. Usually removing the battery and re-inserting solves the issue until next time.
