I spent a lot of time searching the forums first (and found a lot of info regarding battery error messages and the potential need to place an earplug under the cover) however, I could not locate any comments on the specific issue of battery cover fit potentially impacting the waterproof quality of the unit.
Thanks in advance for any available info on this topic.
Sounds normal to me. The two Montanas here have never suffered from leaks in any way, through many heavy showers. Also, when the gps gets dirty, I usually wash it under a tap and never noticed any water getting in.
Besides, if it did get damaged, that's what your warranty's for.
