    GPS Help

    So my bastard dog got hold of my Garmin 62s and has eaten the antenna and I no longer get reception.
    Any recommendations on where to have it fixed, failing that anyone got a GPS for sale?
    Keen for the same again or possibly a rhino.

    Could sell this as a parts one if anyone is interested and turns out to be BER.

    Yeah they generally are, wife left the door open to room with all my gear. Only clued on when I found first aid kit in the hall. Hunting belt was found in the yard with thankfully just the GPS destroyed.

    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    I think @Munsey had a Garmin GPS fixed recently so he might be worth a PM

    .....on the bright side at least now the dog has "internal GPS" and no excuse for getting lost!!!

    My Garmin Rino's got nicked in a home burglary, insurance co bought me new ones ................. eventually .................... after a word or two they saw it my way and coughed up.

    The fine print works both ways.

    Check your policy under sporting goods, then fill in your claim form.

    Cheers
