Lost two Zumo' really close together when I had it RAM mounted, it's nice since they were under warranty. The Touratech mount is rubber damped and they'd last much longer once I switched to that mount.

My last Zumo survived a lightning strike, made it another 3-4 months, then croaked, refurbed it and sold it.

The 376C survived the lightning too, made it a little over a year after that and croaked, refurbed and sold.

Let dead GPS' die.
