I gess that there was oxide on the contacts. The grease won't clean it, but the chontact cleaner will.

Guess I'll try to do some tests on the cradle with a multimeter.

Hi.
This is the first time using any GPS under direct sun light. I learn I can't see hardly anything on the screen?

Looks like the screen just isn't bright enough. With my dark sunglasses on, I can barely see the screen under the shade.

How do y'all deal with this?

Sorry to resurrect an old thread. But I've lost the safety screw on the motorbike mount, and without it the pins don't make great contact. Does anyone know the thread size of the screw or perhaps where to buy one online (UK)?

I've tried an old serial/parallel cable thumbscrew for a PC but it was too big. Took it into the local Maplins and they didn't have anything that would fit either.
