El Hombre writes “The Vista is a nice unit and I quite like it (mainly for biking and hiking) but it must be said that Garmin’s service and repair policy stinks. There is a default warranty of one year, and after the warranty has expired, you are charged a flat rate for any repair. The flat rate depends on the model and for the Vista it will set you back about $150. Right, that’s half the price of a new unit.”… Here the how to on a DIY fix for a bad electrical contact on the Garmin Etrex Vista. Thanks Tom! Link.
