Send your Montana back to Garmin for [$170] Refurbishment (they will replace your unit with a Referb). I broke one doing this and I knew better. Even being as careful as you can, if the Screen Protector you use has ANY adhesive on it you will most likely take off/break the TCO layer.

Well, that's a little messed up considering the Garmin protector has adhesive.

Any update with firmware 5.70 about the locked maps bug?

I don't know if I want to install it and then downgrade one more time to 5.40

I don't think it has adhesive on it. I took one off on this YouTube video and it was a year old, yet it came off easily.



Are you sure the one you had was what Garmin supplied with the mount?

I updated to 5.70 with no issues. All maps load just fine.

The map verification component was removed from 5.70.

Positive. But now looking at a new one I don't feel any adhesive.

I don't remember them having adhesive at any time in the production. My first Montana and Rugged Mounts were bought shortly after the Montana was released. And we had 4 mounts, eventually.

I am sure you are correct. I bought one of the rugged mounts shortly after they came out. It was on my montana until yesterday. It seemed pretty well stuck on there. Anyway, another member said replacing on the broken screen was fraught with problems and replacing the whole glass/tco assembly was the way to go. About $100 on ebay.

This link was sent to me which, while not about replacing the screen, shows how it all comes apart.

If the broken part is $100 on eBay, and you need to dismantle the whole thing to change it out, I'd just give Garmin the $170 and get a virtually new GPS out of it. One perk is you'll end up with a spare battery. They never ask for it back.

Garmin tends to frown on basket cases as your exchange for a refurb. I've heard of them refusing to exchange units which were obviously tampered with.

Thanks Swimmer

Can someone clarify hardening, is it just fastening the antenna, none of the other components? I've seen the term and thought it would be more involved, maybe potting(?) more connections. Although I bought a Touratech mount for a DR650, my 276C is rattling around like an out of balance washing machine through the stutter bumps (lots of stutter bumps). It's still running sweet at 55k miles on the DR (90k total on the 276).
