Re: GPS-Garmin800 repairs?

I live here in the US. After more searching I have located 2 small businesses that repair GPS units. In fact they both discuss,on their site, the very problem I am having with the USB port. So for $40US I can have it repaired with a new USB port!

Re: After A Tour ... Lacking Motivation to Go Out Cycling
